National Bike Summit Update – Lobby Day Still On
Updated 11 am
The Federal Government has announced that it will be closed today, Wednesday, March 6. We checked with the Capitol switchboard, and Congressional offices will be open. We suggest calling the offices you will be visiting to confirm your appointments.
League staff will be available at Lobby Day headquarters – Lutheran Church of the Reformation, 212 East Capitol Street, N.E., Washington, DC, 20003
Congressional Reception is still on for tonight. The Green Lanes congressional briefing at 3:30 p.m. is still on. The Capitol Visitors Center is also open today.
The Alternative Session will continue, though some speakers have cancelled.
No news yet on the Summit Ride tomorrow.
As of right now the Capital Bikeshare operations center tour will take place at 12 p.m. on Thursday as scheduled. However, if the Congressional Bike Ride is called off, we will not be leading a ride to the operations center. Those that are still interested can head straight there. The operations center is located at 1714 2nd Street SW, about a 5 minute bike ride or 10 minute walk from the Waterfront station on Metro’s green line. There is a Capital Bikeshare station located just outside the Metro exit across 4th Street.
Anyone who is interested in the tour should call Capital Bikeshare’s customer service number, 1-877-430-BIKE, in advance to confirm the tour is still on.
