Bike Sharing in the Capital

I'm addicted to the Capital Bikeshare. So far I've used the bright red shiny bikes to have lunch in U Street and Georgetown, deposit a check at the credit union in McPherson Square, go to the gym in Golden Triangle and visit the dentist in Dupont Circle. According to my rental history log on the Capital Bikeshare website, my shortest trip was three minutes and my longest trip was 27 minutes, so I met the 30 minute time limit before the meter starts running. Therefore, my only bill so far has been the $50 annual introductory fee, which has since been raised to $75 for new members.

Here is a good video about how to use Capital Bikeshare:
