SmartBike DC Starts August 11th!

Yes, It’s true. I have just spoken to a representative from SmartBike DC and she has confirmed that the public will be able to check out bikes starting August 11th. Visit to sign up. The cost is $40.00 for one year of unlimited bike usage, pretty reasonable I would say, considering in Paris is was thirty Euro.

I’m very excited for this. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked by those empty stations while I was running late for something just wishing I could hop on and pedal my way there.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for rapid expansion of the network. The more people sign up right off the bat, the faster they’ll get the hint that they need to expand.

Now go sign-up!

    I’d like to see a SmartBike station at City Vista within a year. The K Street sidewalks should be wide enough to accommodate a station.

    How about bike lanes on every street in the Triangle? I think it’s doable since they’re all going to be redone in the next couple of years anyway.

    People feeling safe on their bikes is also a key element to increasing the numbers of cyclists on our streets!
