The Districts Department of Transportation has announced it will be increasing the number of cycle lanes in the downtown area. This is a fantastic announcement for all those cyclists who have been dealing with aggressive drivers and dangerous crossings.
We have to hope this is just the start though. More cycle lanes are needed and the area around the GW campus is the perfect setting. Such a plan would encourage more cycling which is both a time saving and healthy hobby. Though we live in an urban city campus there is no reason why we cant encourage cycling. If you want to see DC from two wheels take a look at the bike routes that already exist.
