Penn Ave.

Pennsylvania Avenue downtown
the bike lane on Pennsylvania Avenue
or is that considered a "bike track"

for years I rode in that "no man's land" on the bike
turning it into a bicycle track was an excellent development for making cycling more safe in Washington DC

yet...
it is still a dangerous place to be
cars parked in the bike track
cars taking U-Turns in the bike track
no one taking into consideration that there "might" be a bicycle in the bike track


pedestrains cross without anticipating the passing bicycle traffic
cabs taking that previously menitoned U-Turn in the bike track
and people parked in the bike track
worse than people parking in the bike track
frequently I see DC Police officers parked in the bike track

in the photos here
a bus is in my shot
and
a cop takes a U-Turn after parking in the bicycle track for a short while
