Bike to Work Day Corral May 16

With just one week to go, we’re excited to announce that Capital Bikeshare will be hosting a bike corral at the Freedom Plaza pit stop for this year’s Bike to Work Day on May 16. A bike corral is a temporary docking location staffed by our operations team, and allows Capital Bikeshare members to return bikes without having to search for a station with an open dock. The corral will be located at the 14th & D St NW/Ronald Reagan Building station from 6:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.

This year, over 79 pit stops will open on Friday, May 16 throughout the region and we want you to make your commute count by registering for the event. Even if you already use Capital Bikeshare or your own bike to get to work regularly, your participation is key to drawing attention to bicyclists and encourages people on the fence to join in on the fun. Not to mention the free t-shirt, food, drinks and great raffle prizes available at the pit stop where you register!

A friendly reminder to our members that there will be lots of bike-commuting newbies out and about on Bike to Work Day, so please be alert and helpful as they get rolling!
