    Yeah I got all steamed up and forgot my forum golden rule where I don't read crash threads. All it does it play with my mental balance of how safe cycling actually is.

    Anybody have first hand knowledge if Ft Myer guards are checking for bike passes nowadays? Just checked their website and was directed to this horribly designed link that says only 1 year or 60 day options are available (the former requiring a sponsor).

    https://www.slideshare.net/JBMHH/acc...edestrians2015

    You can't zoom in nor print out the form from this website. It also appears to be dated 2015 and I know I was cutting through the base in 2017 without any special permission (I do have a fed ID though).

    What's the status now?

    Thanks!

    This is good, as it now appears that I will be collecting Social Security before Hoffman-Boston Connector is complete

    I haven't tried it since 2017, but, as mentioned in this thread, could not access at Wright Gate - only Hatfield. The page I linked to then is still incomprehensible to me. I think some of the words are wrong.
