What is the difference between Bike and Roll and Capital Bikeshare?
For Immediate Release: April 12, 2011
WASHINGTON, DC – Washington's new bike share system, Capital Bikshare (CaBi), is a fantastic addition to our city. The program is an initiative of DDOT to get more cyclists on the road and provide another facet of our public transportation system. There has been some confusion amongst some of our customers who are curious about the difference between Bike and Roll and Capital Bikeshare.
The most prominent difference is that CaBi is geared towards DC residents and commuters who use their bikes daily for short periods of time. Members pay a membership fee, and are charged a usage fee if they keep the bike for more than 30 minutes. Bike and Roll prices are intended to offer the best price for full day rentals. In addition to offering tours, Bike and Roll includes a helmet, lock, flat kit and map with every rental
Do you want to start commuting by bike? Are you between 4'11" and 5'6"? This summer is the perfect time to start! Bike and Roll still has a number of used Trek hybrid bikes for sale, all for 50% off MSRP. We have bikes size 13" through 17.5" available from our 2010 fleet ($240 each).
To schedule a time to take one for a spin, give us a call at our downtown dc location at 202-842-2453.

But don't take our word for it, read some reviews on TripAdvisor from customer's who've taken our tours this summer:
"We visited DC in the hottest week of the year! The temps were over 100 every day of our visit. Because our feet and legs were so sore from walking everywhere and it was so miserably hot, we almost cancelled our bike ride. That would have been a huge mistake...The nice breeze from riding felt like heaven." - BJGtravelBug (July 2011)
"The guides are young, friendly and very knowledgeable -- telling interesting, little known stories about each site. There is plenty of time for photos -- the pace is easy and relaxing. Both times we have taken the tour at night when it is cooler and the monuments are lit. I highly recommend this tour for young and old alike." - Mammak100 (July 2011)
