I though you all would enjoy this picture if you haven't seen it already.
No cars or trucks parked in the track this morning at about 7:45, at least between 21st and 15th.
However, the Treasury department was using the 15th street track as a construction loading zone -- completely blocked.
I saw three delivery trucks and a car parked in the bike lane at around 9:45am. I still have not seen it all clear!
The po-po making sure no one accidentally biked into the construction zone on the next block.
Been seeing wrong way cyclists on the cycletrack far too often. I tend to let them know that they're going the wrong way but I get the feeling they're well aware of that already.
I have a question about the L Street Cycletracks. I have tried to do some research, but haven't come up with anything yet...what is the etiquette/what is the safest way when using these cycletracks to make a right hand turn at an intersection that is currently moving forward.
For example...I am riding Eastbound in the L Street Cycletracks, but want to make a right on to the 15th street bike lanes when I get there. What should I do when I reach 15th, and L street still has the green light moving forward with heavy morning traffic. I don't want to just stop right in the cycletracks to wait for the light to change in case someone is behind me, and cutting left onto the sidewalk seems dangerous if a car has moved into the left turn lane. Thoughts? What has been your experience and your solutions? I actually like having this route, and I feel like the more people that use it, the more cars will get used to us.
