    Cool, what'd you think of it? I figure it's a good example for comparison to the Wilkes Street Bikeway to see the advantages/disadvantages with the incorporation of the bicycle infrastructure on each. I am planning on doing a video of the Key Blvd bike route in north Arlington as another example of a neighborhood bike route in the area.

    Default Let's Bike Commonwealth Avenue Video

    The last of the "Let's Bike" videos that I filmed at the end of June, this one is of Commonwealth Ave in Alexandria. Commonwealth Ave is probably my favorite road to ride on in the DC area, and I often will ride its entire length along with Eads Street as an alternative to Potomac Yard Trail, Potomac Ave, Crystal Dr bike blocked lanes, and the infamously trafficked MVT. The only part I do not like is the choke point as it approaches the underpass at King St/Cameron St which gets especially congested during rush hour, but I love the rest of the route.

    The video also shows Daingerfield Road because I wanted to show the connections to the Prince St bike lane and Duke St.

    Saw this today while driving (don't worry, my son took the pic while I was operating the car):

    Apparently it's a 3-foot-law reminder noodle! Cars (including me) really took their time finding a clear opportunity to pass, and went full into the other lane to pass. Personally, as a rider I would take more of that lane (actually, I prefer not to ride that part of Cedar Ln in Vienna, between Cottage and Hilltop), but that noodle did have a positive effect on the behavior of the car traffic. The bike was unusual, too: it was a tandem with the front rider (only) in a recumbent position.

    Rode with MORE (the local mountain bike club) at Elizabeth Furnace yesterday. If you love riding rocks, this place is a treat. If you hate any sort of bumps on your ride and prefer smooth, glassy tarmac, this would be the worst day of your life

    I was out on the Rove on Sunday riding a mixture of road, paved and gravel trails, and some singletrack looping up around Bad Homburg to Römerkastell Saalburg, then to Sandplacken for a snack, and heading downhill back through Oberursel (losing my Garmin somewhere on the rough descent)

    Default Let's Bike Key Boulevard Video

    Wrapping up the extremely useful neighborhood bicycle route videos, I had to do one of Key Blvd. While the video technically starts on 13th St N at Quincy St, I consider it all one route from Ballston to Rosslyn. The route is pretty calm and comfortable for cyclists because of the traffic circles and cross streets having stop signs that allow for a smooth ride.

    If there was an example that all neighborhood bikeways should strive towards, this would be at or near the top of the list.
