Capital Bikeshare celebrates the opening of its 400th station

According to a District Department of Transportation email sent to subscribers this morning, Capital Bikeshare not only celebrated the installation of its 400th Bikeshare Station but they are having a one-day contest where 10 lucky people can win an annual membership.

The bike station dock was installed at the intersection of Division Avenue and Foote Street, NE, in Ward 7 in the District — marking the 400th publicly accessible station to be added to the Capital Bikeshare system, which abuts Marvin Gaye Park.

To celebrate this station and its six year anniversary, Bikeshare is holding a one-day system-wide scavenger hunt for all riders. One hundred limited-edition Capital Bikeshare CitySeat padded seat covers have been randomly placed on bicycles throughout the system, and today, September 2, riders are eligible to find and claim the seat covers. Those how find the seat cover should post on twitter, Facebook and other social media a photo of the cover with the hashtag #cabi400 for a chance to win one of 10 annual Capital Bikeshare membership gift certificates.

Winners will be announce at the end of today, September 2, on Capital Bikeshare’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
