Hey DC government, people ride bicycles in SE too....

Based on the status of the bike paths, and routes in SE, you would think that DC government does not believe that the people of SE ride bicycles. The path along Suitland Parkway is crumbling, and covered in broken glass and overgrowth. The bike path up over the 11th Street bridge is covered in trash, is so narrow that you can barely put one bike down it, and has such a low guardrail between it and the cars whizzing by on the bridge that if you fell over, you would be roadkill shortly.

It seems like it would benefit the city to enable people to bike to work/around town, as it would reduce the number of cars on the road, plus the city should be interested in reducing their carbon footprint.
