- Coverage of WABA's Regional Call to Action, which included a few speakers on CaBi "An interesting but not surprising finding of Darren's was that proximity to bike lanes has a significant impact on use of CaBi in an area. The results of an extensive survey of CaBi users will be available in December." And more from Richard Layman "As long as transportation enhancement funding exists, WMATA is required to spend 1% of the funds they receive from the Federal Government on enhancements such as biking and pedestrian improvements, and while they cannot fund everything that they would like to do, this is a steady source of funding for bike improvements, so long as the enhancement program continues to exist."
- And also from Richard Layman in the same post "So effective in 2012, the Downtown Business Improvement District is taking over the management and staging of the Freedom Plaza Bike to Work Day event, which is the biggest and best true, but now WABA, which face it, has limited resources, can do more and better and other things..."
- Another story on how CaBi does rebalancing. Careful, that A to B song is catchy.
- Pathletes need to win.
- What can be done to create more bike parking in Arlington County.
- Calvert Investments gives employees who bike to work a one-time payment of $500 toward a bicycle

- "$3.8 billion per year are saved in avoided mortality and reduced health care costs for obesity and heart disease by replacing half of the short journeys with bicycle trips during the warmest six months of the year."
