    Well, since I'm from Fairfax, which has a multi-decadal trail paving program, having something done in the past few years counts as "just". Also, this year, last year, and the year before are a...

    If you're on android look at Locus and then download open street map vector files. I keep Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania on my phone all the time and download other places as needed. This is...

    It's pretty normal for non-church youth organizations to have no-booze-at-activies-with-the-kids policies, also. It's really not that big a deal; at some point if someone can't go without having a...

    And if we sent the governors on a 21 day bike ride we'd need to invent a new scary controversy!

    They're spending a billion dollars on roads, this is our best chance to get anything for bikes. :-/ If it passes with strong support that will send a message that people are willing to pay for bike &...

    I had forgotten that springfield isn't in the springfield district. One more thing I can hate about the fairfax district system. :rolleyes: And in that case I have no suggestions, because McKay is...

    Well, fairfax is very tied to the supervisor system, and your supervisor wants to cut money spent on bikes, trails, parks, and basically anything that isn't a new road for cars. That tends to mean...

    Yeah, but little loudoun has jack-in-the-box cops to randomly harass the cyclists on the W&OD.

    This reminded me I need to go vote. Early and often!

    I looked. The answer is that fixing this is not on the bicycle master plan. The GC3T will continue to go on Pickett Road between East Blake Lane Park and Accotink, and there are no improvements...

    Fairfax has already solved this problem by adding trailers and having lunch run from 10-2.

    I meant a second Antares pad. It's not just the payload weight rating that matters (though that does require some engineering since it's built on a sandbar) but also the physical interface to the...

    It's not a question of shame, it's that the dang things are dangerous, especially at uncontrolled crossings. (Like the one just north of 66--at a school, no less, which is like just asking to get...

    I'm pretty sure I already responded to that. The basic difference is the lack of pedestrians and the expectation that on-street bike facilities are primarily transportation infrastructure, so there's...

    It took 2 years to build it in the first place. There are a lot of lines: the water for the suppression system, the comms, the fueling system, etc. Then it's got to mate to the rocket. If the...

    I don't see how the GC3T helps in this situation. The problem isn't suitable east-west routes, it's getting across 66. Gallows & Nutley are both baby superhighways, and Cedar is too narrow with high...

    Ouch, yeah, that's tough. 66 is a real barrier to north-south travel all over Fairfax. I'd probably do Nutley but I wouldn't like it. If you're really in the just looking phase I'd look north of 66.

    No, I want to keep the current situation where people just use reasonable ebikes on the trail in such a way that most people don't even notice, and nobody really cares.

    Bikes aren't the driver for battery technology, cars are. There's been as much technological development in the last 15 years as there was in the previous 50, and the pace seems to be accelerating....

    Or motorcycles.



    A big part of that is the speed differential. If the bike can easily keep up with traffic, that factor disappears.

    I think that current production e-bikes are fine on most...
