It's Not Ok. It's Tragically Wrong.

Coming to DC and immediately jumping on my bike and riding on the streets I had a rude awakening. I was not in Chicago anymore. Drivers react and respond differently and are less predictable than Chicago drivers. It's been my new reality for a year and a half. But I still ride every day. I still grocery shop on my bike, bike to work, and go for joy rides. Part of what's made that possible is the Twitter community of #bikeDC. Fast friends that have been supportive, empathetic, and funny when…See More

"311 isn't nearly as responsive as they need to be, but we need people like Argonne to keep fighting the good fight. If no one called 311 or voiced any complaints then the lack of enforcement issue would be that much harder to overcome."

Biking Green: An Interview with Maria Boustead of Po Campo

Recently, after moving to D.C., I decided to "go green" as much as possible. So I stopped taking Lyft rides, replacing them with an around-town Linus and I replaced my bus trips with a Brompton for my daily commute. I realized with the recent awareness of straw usage and one-use plastic containers, I still have a…
