- Let's Choose DC asks candidates in the Special Election about how drivers, cyclists and pedestrians can share the road.
- A pair of letter writers to the Post either miss the point of bike helmet legislation opposition or ignore the reason for opposition. It is not opposition to bike helmets. It is opposition to a mandate to wear them. William Shepherd argues, in contrast to the evidence that a helmet law will not discourage biking and that "Helmet legislation such as that under consideration in Maryland will save lives, and passage of the bill will nudge the bikeshare system to provide helmets." Those points are very much in contention, and are not supported by the evidence thus far.
- Bike sharing leads to more biking. "exposure to a BIXI station was associated with a significant increase in the likelihood of bike riding. The change didn't occur overnight. After the first season of BIXI there was a slight positive trend, but nothing measurable. By the end of the second season, however, Montreal residents who lived near a bike-share docking station were much more likely to be people who rode a bike."
- As a reminder, DC is a Green Lane Project city "The GLP aims to foster this evolving mindset by helping six target cities to adopt high-quality bicycle infrastructure – bike lanes where people can ride with at least some protection from car traffic in the form of bollards, parked cars, raised pavement, or other separation. Often they are painted – that’s right – green. GLP is educating city officials through travel and the exchange of information with peers around the world; identifying obstacles to implementation of better bike infrastructure; and gathering data to quantify the effect such lanes have on riding patterns and demographics. It will make its findings available to the general public as the project progresses."
