Test Your Mettle - Be a Capital Bikeshare Winter Warrior

It’s winter. That didn’t stop our members from taking more than 4,500 trips during a blustery, frigid December 1, with wind chills in the low single digits.

We’re blown away by the ridership numbers so far this season, so we’re issuing a challenge to all of our members to start off 2017. We’re open year-round, but are you a Capital Bikeshare Winter Warrior?

Here’s the deal: We’re challenging you to ride this winter, come wind, snow or chills. Grab your scarf, find those ski goggles or stock up on wool socks; whatever you need to do to ride between January 1 and March 1, 2017.

We know you can brave whatever Mother Nature throws at you and we need your help to show everyone how it’s done. Post a photo of yourself riding in your winter gear using the hashtag #CaBiWinterWarriors to show everyone how you’re making it work this winter. We’ll share our favorites from our social media channels and give you a shout-out and an additional raffle entry. We’ll recognize your efforts when you hit any one of our three levels with a digital medal and an entry into our prize drawings.

  • Gold Medal: 100+ rides
  • Silver Medal: 50+ rides
  • Bronze Medal: 25+ rides

We’ll also be recognizing some of the superstars of the Winter Warrior competition with prizes for:

  • Most rides
  • Most stylish winter ensemble (from your #CaBiWinterWarrior submissions)
  • Most days ridden

The winter here in the metro-D.C. region has a deep bag of tricks. But we’ve seen it all and you know what to do. Let’s ride this winter and show Mother Nature who’s boss. Join the #CaBiWinterWarriors and take on winter on two wheels
