There are so many great reasons to hop on a bike instead of into your car, and we do everything we can to spread that message. Fun, better health, less traffic congestion, cleaner air, financial savings, etc. -- they're all included in the benefits you get every time you ride a bike. And you've clearly been getting that message! The proof is in our continually growing rates of membership, which allow us to keep expanding. We appreciate your membership and support of Capital Bikeshare, and to express our gratitude, we've been offering "Member Benefits." Through partnerships with various community businesses, we've been able to bring you great deals each month. If you haven't taken advantage of these fabulous discounts, maybe now is the time!
Grab a red bike and roll over to Del Frisco’s Grille. For a short time only (this month, to be exact) they’re offering a free order of cheesesteak eggrolls with any dinner entrée when you show your Capital Bikeshare fob. Head over and enjoy a meal on their patio with the sun on your back post-ride and experience their unique brand of hospitality.
Looking for a way to beat the winter blues? Check out our longtime Member Benefit partners at MINT Gym and Spa, who have a brand new offer for you. Show your fob at the registration desk at either the Downtown or Dupont Circle location for a free 5-day trial. If you like what you see and you will), they’ll also waive your 2nd month’s fee and take 50% off your enrollment. Defeat the cold and get ready for spring with MINT Gym & Spa and Capital Bikeshare.
Want to start the New Year on a productive foot? Pedal over to your neighborhood productive space. Our friends at cove are offering new members free weekends during your first month when you sign up using the code “BIKES”. With printing, coffee, Wi-Fi and more included, cove makes getting things done as easy as a bike ride. Hurry, you have to sign up by 3/31/16. Grab a bike and head on down to one of their seven area locations – all conveniently close to Bikeshare stations.
Sometimes it’s just too far to ride to work and the hill on the way home can be daunting. Enter our friends at Riide, with their sleek black electric bike, designed and assembled right here in DC. Want to see what it’s all about? Riide is offering current Capital Bikeshare members a FREE 3-day trial. Just stop into their Shaw store and show your fob. Add a charge to your trip with Riide!
Hardware store trips are a little hard to pull off on Bikeshare when you have to carry paint cans. So why not bring the painters to you? Check out our friends at Paintzen, where using the code “BIKEZEN” when you request a quote gets you a $150 discount on your one-stop solution for all your painting needs. They even offer Capital Bikeshare red paint (it’s Pantone PMS485, if you were wondering).
Is your Capital Bikeshare membership keeping you riding on two wheels and out of your personal vehicle? Our friends at Getaroundwant you to know that while you’re out riding, your car can be out earning money. For the month of December, Capital Bikeshare members interested in sharing their vehicle by listing it on Getaround can get started with a free Connect installation. Share your car on the Getaround network and make sure it earns its keep!
Looking for healthy meals but you don’t have time to cook? Our new Member Benefit with Galley helps you get a delicious meal at home or at the office without the trouble. With freshly made, always-changing options delivered to your door, there’s nothing to worry about. Get your first meal free ($14 value) – lunch or dinner – when you sign up here or download their iOS app and sign up using invite code “BIKESHARE.”
We love being active while getting around, but let’s be honest – unless you’re bench pressing a Capital Bikeshare bike, it’s not the answer for complete fitness. That’s where Balance Gym DC comes in. You can take advantage of fitness equipment, Crossfit classes, yoga, spin and more. Show your key fob when you sign up for any membership at their downtown location to skip the enrollment fee and save $25 off your first month’s fees. Let active transportation keep you fit in every way!
