Excited about this facility. Awaiting what it'll cost, etc. I walked by it and it looks cool. Everything there is so classical and it's nice to see that angular thing coming out of the ground.
Thanks for the link about the Alice Swanson story. I hadn't read a full accounting of how she got killed. If I had been in her position, I think I would have bailed to the right. Maybe it happened too fast. I think I remember it was early in the morning, so maybe she was groggy.
I ride DC streets alot and even with the bike lanes, I take the lane. If I see a car coming up on me I'll go to the bike lane. I feel secure that most likely the driver saw me.
Even though the Mayor may have goofed on this one, he's probably the best mayor bicyclists have ever had around there.
