Capital Bikeshare at the Summit: Valet Parking and Free Tour!

Bike share snowPerhaps even more than the Lincoln Memorial or the Washington Monument, attendees at the National Bike Summit have been drawn to a new tourist attraction in town: Capital Bikeshare.

We know many of you will be itching to hop on one of the beautiful red bikes, and our friends at CaBi are making it easy for you to ride — and get a peak behind the scenes.

During the 2013 National Bike Summit, March 4-6, Capital Bikeshare will have additional corrals at its regular station at H and 8th  Streets (just two blocks from the Summit hotel). That means you can pick up a CaBi at any location in the city and ride it to the Summit — without having to worry about the bike docks being full. Capitol Bikeshare will have valets there ready to take your bike and point you in the right direction.

These additional corrals will be available:

  • Monday (March 4): 7 – 9:30 a.m. and 4 – 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday (March 5): 6 – 9:30 a.m.

Curious about what it takes to run a bike share program? Alta Bicycle Share will host a tour of its Capital Bikeshare operations center following the National Bike Summit Ride on Thursday, March 7. Meet up with Alta Bike Share’s Eric Gilliand and Charlie Denney at Garfield Circle at 11 a.m. for a ride over to the warehouse and a noon tour. Or meet at 1714 2nd Street SW, just a 10-minute walk, or five-minute bike ride from the Waterfront Metro Station on the green line. For more information, e-mail [email protected].
