My wife had a surprise party for me this weekend with a dozen out-of-state friends and family in town, so naturally I didn't do any blogging and didn't have anything in the queue. It will take me a few days to catch up.
- R. Myers of the DC BAC went to the Anacostia Metro Station Area Design Charette. "One of the more bicycle-specific elements of the design would include elements of the South Capitol Street Environmental Impact Statement; specifically, the extension of the Suitland Parkway trail across Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE.....Other suggestions included adding more Bikeshare, bicycle parking and potentially convert Shannon Place, which runs roughly parallel to Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, into a bicycle boulavard along its entire length." No mention of converting the unused rail line into a trail.
- MoBike reminds Montgomery County cyclists to speak up in favor of the county's Annual Bikeway Program. "The ABP is a critical county program that funds small scale bikeway improvements, design work and planning studies related to bikes. Individual projects funded by the ABP must cost less than $300,000."
- New, green bike lanes on an often filmed street have pushed productions one block over, because green bike lanes do not look like "Anytown, USA". Odd, most people in film and commercials don't look like my neighbors either, but that doesn't seem to be a problem.
