Good chance to ask Gabe Klein about the Pennsylvania Avenue cycletracks and why Fenty demanded they be removed after they were installed. Maybe the real story will come out.

Pennsylvania Avenue, between the White House and the U.S. Capitol, serves many different roles: local and national, daily routines and big events, grand and intimate. Join us as we formally kick-off the Pennsylvania Avenue Initiative with an expert panel that will explore future possibilities for this special neighborhood.
