This I wonder. Cycling around union station sucks (e.g., the roads are hell on two wheels). Why did it make sense to make that the hub?

There were several reasons. It's the most frequently used metro station for cyclists. With the Amtrak station is also has many long-term parkers. It's a destination in it's own right (movie theater, mall, restaurants). It's at the end of the Met Branch Trail. And finally, and possible most importantly, DDOT got the land for free (though they then had to spend quite a lot to make it architecturally acceptable to Union Station).

D.C. Cyclists: contribute to the ongoing discussion of alternate transportation today at http://www.infrastructureusa.org>www.InfrastructureUSA.org. View the http://www.infrastructureusa.org/category/show-us-your-infra/>Show Us Your Infra video urging transportation reform, "Retraining America," or interviews in the http://www.infrastructureusa.org/category/blog/>The Infra Blog from Senator Robert Menendez and Governer Edward Rendell. Get involved and tell us which infrastructure projects are most important to you.

If they don't add a Smartbike Station I am going to flip a fucking pancake.
