Destination: Crystal City

Long Bridge Park in Crystal City, Arlington VA

Often regarded as an annex of the Pentagon, Crystal City is home to much more than just office buildings. With new parks, trail access, great restaurants and a burgeoning social scene, it is fast becoming a place to be beyond the nine to five. Crystal City was also home to the original Arlington deployment of Capital Bikeshare stations, making the neighborhood an early adopter of bikesharing in the United States.

Corral Service for July 4th Fireworks

Heading to the fireworks this July 4th? We’ll be there! Capital Bikeshare will be operating a corral at the 10th St. & Constitution Ave NW station adjacent to the National Mall from 3pm until 1 hour after the fireworks end. Our corral service staff will be available to ensure that you always find an open dock as you join the celebration.

Once the fireworks are over, bikes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis until they are all gone. Please keep that in mind when you head home and be sure to know all your transportation options. Happy Independence Day!

It's Time to Play "Where's That Bikeshare?"

UPDATE: The solutions to this edition have been posted at the bottom of the article. Thanks for playing!

In nearly five years of operation, the Capital Bikeshare system has grown significantly, taking its place in the landscape of our region. But how familiar are you with the current 353 stations in the system? Inspired by our friends at Greater Greater Washington, we’re introducing an occasional social media quiz to test your knowledge of the stations. Welcome to “Where’s That Bikeshare?”

Just One in 10 Million

Last month, Natalie B’s quick ride home became much more than her usual commute. Her short jaunt from 14th St & D St NW / Reagan Building to 8th & D St. NW turned out to be the 10 millionth trip taken on Capital Bikeshare. To celebrate such a momentous feat, we tracked her down, asked her some questions and hooked her up with this sweet Capital Bikeshare messenger/pannier bag made by Timbuk2!
