*UPDATED* September Events Affecting Your Ride



**Update: Capital Bikeshare corral service will be offered at select locations during the Papal Visit to serve our riders. Please scroll down for more information**

September is shaping up to be a busy month for our area. Please keep in mind that some of the events happening in the region will impact the Capital Bikeshare system, including the Papal Visit, the Landmark Music Festival, The Nation’s Triathlon and the DC Tour de Cure. These events will affect our ability to service stations and may necessitate the disabling of certain stations, particularly during the Papal visit. Stay tuned to our social media channels for the latest updates.

Go #teambike for Car Free Day




It’s always a pleasure to take a bike from a Capital Bikeshare station and enjoy the ride to your destination rather than sit in traffic. Share that enjoyable experience on September 22 for International Car Free Day in Metro DC. Join one of six teams and show how easy it is to get around our area sustainably and efficiently. When you take the pledge (and, ahem, join #teambike) you are eligible to win some great prizes, like one of five Capital Bikeshare annual membership certificates, restaurant gift cards and more!
