On Saturday I was driving down North Capitol and saw an electric car (plugged in to one of the row houses across from McMillan) with about 8 identical, newish looking bicycles attached to it. Another 6-10 of the same bikes were in the front lawn. Seemed like a weird place for all that. Maybe they could have used one of these.
- JDLand was right. The new 11th Street Local Bridge will open soon - as in Wednesday. I plan to go by and check it out, but I'm not sure what it means for bike/ped users.
- The Rock Creek Conservancy is going to be hosting some events on National Trails Day - June 2nd, including a bike hike with NPS.
- The budget for the City of Manassas was approved without money for the Winters Branch Bike Trail.
- Indian officials had noticed that "the high school dropout rate soared when girls reached the ninth grade. This was primarily because there are fewer high schools and girls had to travel longer distances to get to school." Guess what the solution was? And the addition of a bike to households has created opportunities for the whole family, since the girls can carry siblings to school or use it to run errands after school.
