- The BAC's Safety, Education and Enforcement Committee is meeting tonight. And the Facilities Committee is having a ride/meeting on Saturday along Rhode Island Avenue.
- I haven't mapped it out, but I wonder if bringing a bike along on the "ride the whole metro" race might help you. Ride out to the end of one line, then bike to the end of the next and ride in? It could help you avoid doubling back, but the connections aren't that good. Maybe if you ride faster than me it would help. Also, not sure if it would be considered cheating.
- I too would advise against wrong-way cycling in almost every case, but something about how this writer frames it bothers me. Dr. Gridlock's response is fine.
- "Last year, 21 cyclists were struck and killed but only two drivers were arrested. And about 40 percent of the time a driver is involved in a fatality – a pedestrian, cyclist, other motorist or themselves – not even a ticket is issued....In order to make an arrest, the NYPD said a motorist must break two traffic laws for the crash to rise to the level of criminal."
- National Bike Challenge to launch in May. "the 2012 Get Up & Ride National Bike Challenge aims to encourage people to bike for transportation and recreation, and to catalog exactly how many miles they're logging every day of the challenge. The program runs from May 1 to August 1, with the goal of uniting 50,000 people to pedal 10 million miles."
