And at just $5 for a 24-hour membership, it won’t break the bank either. There are two Capital Bikeshare stations located at the corner of M & New Jersey Avenue, SE, and First & N Street, SE.

If you are biking to the Capital Bikeshare Birthday Bash, please access Yards Park from 4th Street as this will get you closer to the bike parking without having to navigate through crowds.  There will be bike parking for both personal and Capital Bikeshare bikes. If you are riding your personal bike, please remember to bring your own bike lock.

 

If you are riding Capital Bikeshare, there will be a station at Yards Park for you to dock your bike.  We will be operating a corral to provide plenty of parking for all Capital Bikeshare bikes.  Please remember that you need to dock your bike at the station, then a Capital Bikeshare Street Team member will move your bike to the corral parking to make room for others to dock.
