We were thrilled to be part of Bike to Work Day! We joined lots of bicyclists and community members at the NRC pit stop. What a great way to start the day.

Unfortunately I didn’t think to ask this at the NRC pitstop, when many of the neighborhood organizations were there. But how is space for parking bicycles included in all these new transit-oriented developments? For example, what facilities are available at Pike and Rose or North Bethesda Market to park and lock up one’s bike? Also, do they have near-term plans to install bike-share facilities? It looks from the current Capital Bikeshare map that this area was left out of any plans, with the nearest facilities either down in Bethesda or up in Rockville.
Thanks for writing. Yes, there are bike racks at both North Bethesda Market and Pike and Rose. And yes, there are plans to bring Bikeshare to the Pike District. In fact, the county in working on a grant to do just that. Hopefully it will get funded.
