H St NE trolley tracks and bike accidents
About two weeks ago I was riding my bike on H St. NE near 6th St and my wheel got caught in the trolley tracks and I flew over the handelbars. It was a pretty hard fall — some good samaritans were walking near by and helped me up and got some ice as I recovered my wits. Just want to throw out a thank you. The arm ended up being broken and is now in a cast for about 2 months.
Also, does any one know if the city is going to actually put a trolley on the tracks? If so, it would be great to add a separate bike lane or something. Those tracks are a huge danger to cyclists and I hear that lots of riders have had problems there. The “Caution Cyclists” signs are a joke and probably aren’t going to keep riders off H St NE.
