Back to the grind.
- Arlington considers three strategies for expanding Capital Bikeshare: Adding density to existing corridors, connecting the existing corridors, and creating new corridors. I kind of like a combination with some addition to the existing corridors, expansion to Columbia Pike, and connecting all three along the W&OD corridor.
- Tales from the Sharrows is named City Paper's Best Local Bike Blog. I guess I shouldn't go on vacation any more. The Capital Crescent Trail is named DC's best bicycle trail. [Frankly it's better for running or walking - on the weekends at least, if you want to bike away from the crowds, try the Anacostia Tributary Trails]
- The King Street Metro station will get a complete overhaul that includes more bike parking and less car parking. "Under the plans, riders will say 'goodbye' to the 30 parking spaces and 'hello' to new landscaping, bicycle parking, larger bus waiting and layover areas."
- It looks like the parking lot just south of the Bethesda Trailhead for the Capital Crescent Trail will finally be developed. The plan includes a new, direct trail connection to Woodmont avenue.
- The newly restored O and P streets in Georgetown are much better for bicycling than they used to be. But sorry Crickey, it's still illegal, so you'll just have to take Topher's word for it.
