- Connecticut Avenue south of DuPont Circle will get more bike racks as part of the Connecticut Avenue Streetscape project.
- Alexandria's waterfront plan, which promises to change the Mt. Vernon Trail through the area, is a central issue in the race for Mayor and the subject of a lawsuit.
- National Geographic spotlights the Great Allegheny Passage.
- Seattle gets bike lockers that transit users can rent by the hour. "Metro received a federal grant to try out on-demand lockers in a three-year pilot project. The idea is to make storage more convenient and efficient for people who want to pedal to the bus stop but don't need to take their bikes with them." IF the program is a success, maybe that will inspire our Metro to follow suit. BTW, their annual lockers have only a $50 refundable key deposit (and a long waiting list).
