Bicycling in DC

This video is a report about cycling as a means of commuting in the nation’s capitol. Funny, but in a lot of ways, it could be the report of this subject from most any city in America. I did like the balance in this report.

The fact is, there will always be tension between auto and cycling commuters. The key is learning to manage those tensions. Some give and take on both sides would probably do more than any amount of bike lanes. Problem is, it is a lot easier to slap down some asphalt than to get people to change their behaviors.
