    I'm not an expert at this area, but from my experience, the tunnel is the difference between a trail that could serve all ages, and one that only serves current riders. Seems like a difference worth...

    I do. I think it's a small price to pay for having local, national and international reporting.

    You don't. If you have a chance to have a nice conversation, that may work, but you have no hope of convincing someone they're doing it wrong in 2 seconds, and, luckily, it's not your job.

    I have biked a lot for a long time, and I do not think a blinking light helps identify bikes. It just makes it hard to tell how far away you are.

    What's tough is that I see Arlington getting *better* but, the pace is very slow, and they're not getting good enough fast enough. That's a hard line to walk -- "thanks for installing a PBL on...

    There's no good answer -- it's definitely better to be blinking around cars, and better to be steady on the trail. You know what your commute is like and where the danger is. Do what's best for...

    My guess is that the scofflaw drivist at Lee & Oak knew what he was doing was wrong and did it anyway. No amount of signage will help that. From what I've seen, drivists are obeying the new signal...

    I love this change. When I'm riding downhill, I can confidently proceed with the walk sign, without worrying a car will whip a right turn into me (it's happened). Now cars get to go when cyclists...

    I'm confused - are you (1) crossing the ramp, or (2) staying on the south side of the street and riding in the PBL, which would mean you only need to cross Sycamore? I ask because County staff was...

    This seems to work westbound, but I would STRONGLY recommend against it eastbound -- the sightline at the intersection of Columbia/16th St & Sycamore/Roosevelt is VERY BAD.

    Also, it's December.

    Team M-B is figuring out logistics for the day. Are teams meant to stay together for the biking part? If we have to jet at 1:30pm, will we miss all the fun?
