Get Rolling for Rewards

October 25 to December 10, 2021

To keep you on two wheels year round, goDCgo is paying you to pedal through the fall/winter season! For a limited time only, we're offering $200 towards the purchase of a new bike or a bike tune-up service if you already own a bike. Don't worry if you don't make the cut because the rewards will still be rolling! You can join our weekly challenges and bike ride event for the chance to win plenty of prizes and gift card giveaways.




I pledge to bike more instead of driving alone!

The first 100 pledgers will receive an annual Capital Bikeshare membership.

There is no application deadline. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the program ends or the funds are depleted.  

No. If you’re not a DC resident, you can qualify for the reimbursement if you work in the District. 

Applicants that purchase a bike that costs $200 or more will receive $200 towards the purchase of a new bike until funds are depleted or the program ends. Those that purchase bikes for under $200 will receive a reimbursement for the full amount of their bike. 

Applicants will receive the reimbursement via mail or email six to eight weeks after applying.

Reimbursements will come in the form of a Visa Gift Card. 

Immediately once your application is approved, you will receive six weekly surveys. After that, you’ll receive 3-month and 6-month surveys.

The usage surveys will ask you about your riding frequency, and your experience riding. They are very short, ten questions or less.  

That’s okay! The usage surveys ask if you are using your bike as your main mode of transportation to travel to other locations outside of work.  


Listen to the sounds of DC while you ride with "Groove & Go" - a goDCgo playlist series featuring the DMV's very own local artists that you can enjoy while biking.*
*Please be advised that in the District, you can legally use ONE earbud / headphone while biking.
