I was very excited to see that Howard U is including bike paths in their new master plan. As you know I am a big fan of Capital BikeShare and glad to see they will be expanding in the hood: http://www.thewashcycle.com/2011/07/howard-university-campus-master-plan-lays-out-route-to-make-bike-friendly-campus.html
One note on the Howard plan, they seem to have a very ambitious building plan for the next 10 years. I am not sure if they will raise enough to achieve it.
