There’s some super-cute bike-themed Valentine’s Day propaganda in the world this year, and D.C. bike ambassadors are getting in on the love. They’ll be at 15th and R streets NW tomorrow morning from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., handing out candy and valentines to commuters.
Stop by and say hello—or happy Valentine’s Day! Look for this sign:
As promised, D.C. bike ambassadors blanketed L Street NW last night to reach out to drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians with information on how to properly use the cycletrack. About eight ambassadors and several MPD officers distributed literature, talked to cyclists and drivers, and worked to alleviate any tension in the cycletracks. Read an additional recap on Pilut.
