Virginia usually ranks pretty high on the bicycle friendliness rankings. Do you agree? Do you know the safe passing laws in the state?

Since 2015, the League has recommended that every state adopt a law specifying a safe passing distance when a driver overtakes a person bicycling. As of 2022, 38 states have adopted such a law. To learn more about each state’s Safe Passing actions visit bikeleague.org/states »

Great news for Metro riders and workers! 👏

Transit riders and visitors to the nation’s capital now enjoy one of the most connected wireless experiences of any rail system in the U.S. with coverage available in all tunnels – as Metro, AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon announce wireless service in rail tunnels systemwide.

With Metro's 100-mile tunnel network now connected, customers can communicate or stream content throughout their journey from the street to the station and in the train. The latest coverage additions will add to safety and security by improving mobile communication for customers, Metro employees and first responders in the event of an emergency.

“Bringing this project to the finish line gives riders added security and all the conveniences of wireless connectivity. Customers can text, talk, and explore the internet and apps, including Metro’s mobile payment options to load value and manage their SmarTrip account while traveling on Metro.” - GM/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld

It was a great ride.

As an amateur historian, I found the Jeremiah Moore burial site most interesting. My curiosity was activated, so I did a little more research about Jeremiah Moore. Go visit
