Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

Someone stole my bike in Mount Pleasant last night, in front of the Dorchester house. I’m posting fliers and on next door, but I’m willing to pay a reward for its return. I don’t even care if you’re the person who stole it. I just really loved that bike. It’s a carbon track, 8 speed Miir”

Any info please contact Callie at calliewrong(at)gmail(dot)com

From a press release:

“Safe streets and climate activists throughout DC will close multiple streets to cars on Monday to give pedestrians and bicyclists room to exercise while remaining physically distant. Along with several DC grassroots organizations, the activists will use orange cones and other obstacles to close roads or lanes of traffic to nonresident vehicle traffic. This direct action builds on the #WidenDCSidewalks demonstrations that began in early April. Both movements aim to convince Mayor Muriel Bowser and DC Council Chair Phil Mendelson to immediately open DC streets to people walking, biking, and scooting.

Closures include: A St NE and A St SE, Oleans Place NE, Oates St NE, CHurch St NW, Linden St NE, Wylie St NE, 9th St NW, Upshire St NW, N St SW, Kansas Ave NW, Shepherd, NW, Taylor St. NW, Mozart and Fuller St NW, Butternut St NW, Euclid and Belmont St NW, Otis Pl NW, E St NE, Champlain St NW.

Thanks to Brian for sending from JUMP: “Yesterday we announced that JUMP is joining forces with Lime. Together, we’re excited to make even more bikes and scooters available to you in the Uber app.

As part of this change, JUMP will be temporarily paused in Washington D.C.. We hope to be back soon and will update you when bikes and scooters are once again available in the Uber app.

We are still here for you in other ways – helping you get where you need to go with Uber rides, and delivering meals to you with Uber Eats.

Thank you for riding with JUMP.”

“Dear PoPville,

I am an essential worker hoping to purchase a semi-affordable and reliable bike for my eight mile commute. I am uncomfortable taking public transportation during this time and wanted to see if there were any open bike shops that you would recommend. Thank you so much!”

Fortunately Bike shops are considered essential businesses and have been allowed to stay open. I know my local shop Conte’s is open at 3426 Wisconsin Ave, NW. I got my daughter’s bike fixed there. Unfortunately the new bikes seem to be pretty pricey to me but maybe I’m just out of touch. Anyone have recs for where to get “semi-affordable and reliable bikes”?
