There have been quite a few changes on the government side of bike policy in the DC area
First, Heather Deutsch, the District's Trails Program Coordinator, left DDOT back in May. I don't believe that position has been filled yet.
Then, it was just announced that Chris Eatough; Arlington County's Director of Capital Bikeshare, WalkArlington and BikeArlington programs, is leaving Arlington County at the end of the month to become Howard County's first Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator. Eatough already lives in Howard County, so he'll get to work in his own community, and his hiring definitely signals that Howard is serious about bike sharing. Arlington is trying to fill his position, but I believe applications were due on the 11th.
Finally, Charlie Strunk, Fairfax County Bicycle Coordinator, is leaving at the end of the year, and the county is looking for a replacement for him.
