Visiting Washington: a Few Quick Pics of Cycling near the White House
Today is 4th of July. A good day to share with you a few pictures I took in Washington, DC two weeks ago, when I was there for a work related training. There are tons of websites and blogs out to read up on all the good bicycle initiatives happening down there so I am not going to repeat them.
We were last in Washington in 2008 and I don’t recall seeing many cyclists there, at least not enough that I would notice the numbers. It has definitely changed. There is a bike lane right next to the White House. There are bike lanes in mediums (media?) , a bike share program, bike parking at the subway stations, cargo bike for deliveries in town and funky bike racks. While the city wasn’t flooded with bikes, it was nice to see the changes too. Who would have thunk that you can cycle around the White House?
Last time we cycled the Capital Crescent Way. There was no time to cycle this time, so I took a few pics in the downtown area instead.
Did you see any ideas that we could apply to Ottawa’s situations?
