- Cities with mandatory bike helmet laws are trying to figure out how to do bike-sharing. Some cities have just removed the law. A Canadian company is looking at setting up a helmet sharing system with bike sharing to address their needs. A question worth asking is this "Is it needed." In 1 million trips+ in DC there's been very few crashes, only one of which is serious and it was a neck injury as I heard it. So if you put a helmet on all those riders who went without, it's likely you would have improved safety by something close to zero. Of course, we may just not have enough data yet.
- I don't think I mentioned this, but Long Bridge Park had a ribbon cutting earlier this month. This is just for Phase I, but some day this could be a busy bike route if it connects to the MVT.
