Capital Bikeshare is officially an old-aged toddler. The bikeshare program is celebrating its fourth birthday tomorrow and Mayor Vince Gray will cut the ribbon the District’s 200th bikeshare station at McKinley Street and Connecticut Avenue NW.
In all, there are 340 Capital Bikeshare stations in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Users have clocked more than 8.4 million rides since the system’s launch in 2010. And since 2011, the District’s Department of Transportation has installed 19 miles of bike lanes and three miles of protected bike lanes throughout the city, according to a press release from the mayor.
For the big bikeshare—-or mayoral—-fans that want to see the ribbon cut in person, Gray will officiate the ceremony tomorrow at 11 a.m.
