It’s May and that means bike love and bike events. Today’s Bike and Roll to School Day looked like a lot of fun:
The inaugural installment of Hill Family Biking seems to have been a success this past Saturday: Over 250 biking enthusiasts took to the road and enjoyed two-wheeled camaraderie. Want to be part of the next ride? Sign up here.
The Pennsylvania Avenue project is nearer to completion than ever. A reminder: The bus lanes are parking lanes EXCEPT for during peak hours. If you have questions about the design, check out the project’s landing page here.
The Hill Rag has a recap of last month’s EMCAC meeting.
Ruta recently opened and it looks to be very, very tasty. Axios
Goodbye AutoZone, hello huge new development, now with *some* affordable housing. Urban Turf
And Hill-adjacent, Georgetown law is looking to “modernize and grow its Capitol Hill presence.” To that end, they are pitching a nine-story building at 120 F Street NW. Washington Business Journal
The Georgetown Voice has a nice recap of last month’s Capitol Hill Book Fair. Too bad they had to take an Uber to visit because there is no Metro station in Georgetown.
Speaking of transportation, it looks like the Circulator routes may be in danger of being slashed (WaPo), which affects lower-income people who depend on a more affordable and targeted bus to get around. However, the K Street plan has been deemed a “downtown killer” by the Mayor. Seems counterintuitive to focus on one project only, considering the Circulator provides access to places away from the monumental core, and considering that free buses are also on the chopping block (WTOP).
