that fence is the existing Ft McNair wall

I had thought about that, but then it looks like the sidewalk moves from the outside to the inside of the fence.

I will be so happy if they put in enough bike racks. At RFK, I mostly had to lock the bike to a fence. Biking will be my primary way to get to the new stadium in decent weather.

On the flip side, the RFK street signs where I park are right in front of where the cops parked. Similar to when I ride to Verizon Center, so I feel my bike is very safe.

Any word on whether they are considering a bike valet? Seems like there might not be extra room to carve out of a parking lot, as with Nats Park.

As I recall, Tommy Wells was all over Stan Kasten (team president at the time) about requiring a bike valet to be built at Nats Park. Perhaps this is something Charles Allen can get behind.

DCU's Transportation Management Plan (which my company worked on) called for bike parking for approximately 400 bikes (assuming high end bike mode share of ~2%). Of that, the recommendation was to have 60% be bike racks and the remainder be bike valet.

The direction we got from DCU when we were putting that document together was that they wanted to have the most bike-friendly stadium in MLS, and potentially in American sports, which was awesome to hear.
