The Intersection - Via Left for Ledroit

Everyone already made the short, but illegal, trip from T st NW at New Hampshire to U st NW, but the newly installed contraflow bike lanes have finally made it an officially sanctioned route. For those who are unfamiliar, the oddly mapped block was a sort of biking conundrum that lead most people to simply break the law and ride the wrong way on a one way street. The new bike lane will make a lot of people safer, even if it may confuse a few unfamiliar drivers from time to time. I haven’t tried it yet, but the dedicated bike light, and high tech sensor at the intersection are particularly promising. BIKES!
