    Sounds like a great panel. Call the moderators what you will, in a City where too many are stuck in old ways of thinking (dare I say paradigms - when I was growing up a paradigms paid your fare on...
  2. Master thread for requests for advocacy help

    Now that a certain controversy is settled, time for this

    EB Eye Street SE is now reopened between S. Cap and NJ Avenue, including the bike lane (though there were cones being put out at the corner with First Street SE, but I think that is something more...

    In the 1970s, when people were complaining that there was no bike route from Brooklyn to SI, because Robert Moses built the Verrazano Narrows Bridge without bike/ped accommodations, the MTA ran some...

    There are now construction related slowdowns and temporary stoppages on BOTH parallels - L Street SE, and K Street SE, between Half Street and NJ Avenue.

    That's been a total mess with the construction. And yeah, having a PBL for only a teeny segment is less than ideal and the driveways are not great. I don't prefer taking the lane there though. It's...

    Um hmmm.

    Teaching the Dutch reach is not an issue only for door zone bike lanes - there are lots of other occasions where even riders quite aware of DZ issues end up in DZ's however briefly, and...

    The cookies were excellent, and the ride was fun. It was fairly warm though.
  13. Eye Street SE, EB closed at Half Street

    The entire EB side of the road is closed - the EB bike lane, the EB general travel lane, and the "sidewalk" due to construction.

    NYC /= Manhattan (Not saying you don't know that, just pointing out the larger NYC issues). There are plenty of awful stroads with no bike infrastructure in the outer boroughs. I think a lot of the...

    It makes an exception for cyclists turning left, IIRC. It does NOT envision a protected Copenhagen left as an option. I think a decent bike lawyer could make a case that the availability of a...

    Some are things that are not laws applying to all scooters, but rules applying to dockless scooters based memoranda of understanding with local govts. For example I think the laws for helmets for a...
  19. Near miss at S Eads and S 26th Road, Arlington, Va

    Some of y'all have heard a bit about this on Strava, thought I would fill people in (esp now that I have spoken to Mr Deming, Esq, and determined there seems to be too little $ at stake to sue)
