    better a motorcycle than a car; I suspect they're not nearly as bad for the trail

    I frequently see MPD officers on the CCT in the morning, including this morning. On bikes.

    Are there officers on bikes on the MBT, in the mornings or evenings? I know that most people don't experience issues there, but some have. If they have bike patrols, they should include the MBT too.

    Methinks a bicycle is a better way to become "familiar with the trail". Just saying
    It has been several years since I saw Alexandria Police on bicycles on Holmes Run

    Agreed, but the vehicle most often seen on the trail are police cars. I had suggested to the police that patrol coverage should be best handled by bikes, then motorcycles and finally cars. One advantage to the first two is they can cover the entire trail from Eisenhower Avenue to Chambliss Street while the car is limited on where it can go, not to mention the damage to the trail. According to Captain Wemple, staffing does not allow them to prioritize in my suggested order.
