Urban Cycling / Re: New Cyclist to DC

I am in Hyattsville, close to east-west highway and kenilworth avenue. I can access the bike path (anastoca trail or something like that) and it is very cheap, altought the DC area is WAY too expensive for the average quality of the neighborhood. I can go to downtown DC in like ... 35-40 minutes

I lived in Montreal (PQ) until last year and am now in the washington DC area. I have to say that the capital region s*cks. It is true that there are some bike paths starting nowhere and leading nowhere, but as soon as you want to use your bike for real transportation, you have to ride on some of those nasty highways. Also... Washington is a maze.

In Montreal streets follow a grid scheme and most of them are fun by bike with enough room between parked vehicles and traffic to ride. Anything under 10km is faster by bike that with any other transportation.

Bicycles belong to the road, not to those poorly designed bike paths populated with dogs...
