(Un)Friendly Fridays

Bike Friendly Place of the Week: Washington D.C.

A couple of weeks ago, when I was writing about the bike-unfriendliness of some downtown government buildings, a reader suggested that I don't just write about unfriendly places, but friendly ones as well.  To that end, from now on, we'll rotate a "bike unfriendly" place with a "best practices in biking" example be it from Greater Los Angeles or beyond.  We've also added a new category called "(Un)Friendly Fridays" to make it easier for people to find older stories in the series.

This week, the folks at Streetfilms did my work for me.  Elizabeth Press writes:

This week the Streetfilms team took it for a spin.

Here are some helpful facts about SmartBike DC:

  • To use this bike-share program you must become a member for an annual fee of $40 and have your membership card.
  • Locks & Helmets are not provided so bring your own.
  • Each trip has a 3 hour limit, but you can park at a station and take out another bike for no fee or penalty.
