    Default New bike infra in DC for me to check out?

    I have seen all the new protected bike lanes in near SW by the soccer stadium and in the Navy Yard area, G Street, 20th/21st and Virginia Avenue in Foggy Bottom, Florida avenue and adjacent in near NE and K Street near NOMA. The E-W connection from Brookland to Col Heights. 17th street, and of course the 15th street extension. Bus/bike lanes on H, I NW, and M SE


    What I think I have not seen - A. The recent MBT extension. B. Extension on Warder/Kenyon from the EW cycle track from Brookland C. some new stuff in the northern part of Capitol Hill? D. New bus/bike lanes on 16th Street?

    Anything I am missing?

    The extension of the trail that runs along South Capitol Street, east of the Frederick Douglass Bridge.

    You pick it up at Firth Sterling (mind the trolley tracks), and you can ride south along South Capitol Street until it intersects with Martin Luther King Boulevard.

    So, I rode up the MBT to the end at Mary Center. Fun hills.

    Rode across Brookland to the Crosstown Cycle Track - still an annoying gap on Michigan just west of Monroe.

    Did Kenyon and Warder (had to go around the block a couple of times to find the best place to see ALL of the Warder PBL).

    Rode the new South Cap trail. Very nice piece of infra. Yes, I took the "closed" path on the east (upstream) side of the bridge.

    Any new infra on the Hill for me to see tomorrow?
