I hope everyone got a ride in on Saturday (from the looks of where I rode everyone did).
- The Southwest Waterfront and it's section of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail took another tiny step forward.
- The 11th Street Bridge also had a big weekend. I rode across it yesterday (the outbound bridge is still open to cyclists and pedestrians) and it was so weirdly quiet. NBC got this a little wrong "pedestrians will be able to enjoy a wide bike path." It's not a bike path, it's a sidewalk. And on the local bridge cyclists can use the roadway.
- I-66 spot improvements are done, and they had no impact on the Custis Trail.
- A study of who bikes for transporation and why in Davis, CA has a lot of interesting factoids and conclusions. (thanks to Richard Layman)
- 47% of people who live and work in Davis bike to work once a week. That's amazing.
- Children with parents who bike commute often, tend to bike to soccer games more (no surprise really)
- "while good infrastructure is necessary to get many people bicycling, it is not sufficient for getting most people bicycling."
- I would go on a bike ride with Ron Paul. Hell, if Paul is interested, I would put one together before the DC Primary. But he'd have to agree to ride the Metro (Which in a recent article he claimed he's never ridden despite being in Washington for decades).
