    Please do so and report back. Actually, you just gave me an idea for an all-purpose vaccine!

    Headline should read “Biking back from a movie night more dangerous than regular commuting.” I am that statistic.

    And this doesn't appear to be limited to just biking

    I will be starting the experiment tomorrow as the office fitness center, including locker rooms and showers, will be closed in compliance with Mayor Bowser's order.

    So... a lot has changed since this article was published. I would LOVE to see a follow up article that notes the increase of bike commuting post COVID-19 lockdowns with updated traffic/collision stats. One of the long standing truisms is that with more cyclists commuting on the roads, incidents and fatalities diminish. Would like to see if the data supports this post pandemic.

    Around here I didn't see more cyclists on the roads but vehicle speeds went up.

    Where the heck do you live? There are SO many more cyclists out on the roads in Falls Church and Arlington. It has been quite refreshing to see, actually.
