new bikeshare stations

The Capital Bikeshare (CaBi) bikeshare station partially installed in N. Meade St. Park apparently isn't going to be fully installed.  That pleases some area residents, and saddens others.  However, a bikeshare station is now planned for slightly further south on N. Meade St.  The new proposed location, like the old one, will provide ready access to Rosslyn's majestic Arlington Ridge Park.

In addition, a new bikeshare station has been approved for installation on the south side of the Queen St. bridge over Rt. 50. A new bikeshare station already has been installed on the north side, slightly up 15th St., at the intersection of 15th St. and N. Scott St.

CaBi bikes are getting a lot of use. They're lessening motor vehicle traffic, lessening environmental harms, and making riders happy. Overall, the CaBi bikeshare system has been a great success.

Bike to Work Day is this Friday. The Rosslyn pit stop in Gateway Park will be filled with bikes and riders from 6:30am to 9am. There's likely to be a lot of competition for the CaBi bikes, so if you want one, you will probably have to ride to work early.
