The Friday Cyclotouriste

a geo-photoblog chronicling my "excursions velo"

On the Road……The Capitol and Mall with help from DC’s Bikeshare.

The Capital Bikeshare scheme works like this:

  1. Swipe your credit card at a Bikeshare kiosk to initiate a membership (in my case a 24 hour membership at a cost of $5)
  2. Agree to 120 pages of contract terms by clicking “I agree”
  3. Collect the printed ticket (see above) and enter the code into the docking station to release the bike
  4. Return the bike to any of the 110 stations around the city (if you return the bike within 30 minutes it’s free)

Note: finding a nearby docking station is best accomplished on your smartphone with the remarkably practical Bixou App.
