    If you know how to get to Ballston safely, I would think taking the W&OD and cutting through Alexandria on, say, Valley/Braddock/Commonwealth wouldn't add that much distance.

    Have you considered using the neighborhood streets to the west of Rosslyn and joining the Route 50 trail at the Rhodes Street bridge? Sorta like...

    I don't think this is a particular issue at this location.

    I also think that cyclist controling the lane when they don't need to also leads to resentment. As a driver, I certainly get frustrated...

    So we need separate facilities for cars, for bikes, for pedestrians, for rollerbladers, for joggers, for e-bikes, for segways... Eventually I see issues with so much land devoted to transportation....

    If you aren't carrying a lot of crap in the car, the easiest thing is to just take off the front wheel and throw the bike in the back of the car. (I've actually put a bike in the passenger seat of a...
