Capital Bikeshare launched just two weeks ago, with installations popping up all over town. The idea is simple: if you need a bike, grab your helmet and check one out from Capital Bikeshare and take your ride. When you’re done, return it to any Capital Bikeshare location. Costs are pretty reasonable, with memberships starting at $50 a year. Too pricy? Rent by the hour with your credit card.
Better yet, if you work for OPM, GSA or DOT, you just got a free membership, courtesy of your employer. The three agencies announced a partnership with Bikeshare to provide access to over 1,000 bicycles across the city for their employees to use as part of a wellness initiative.
