    I haven't used it myself, but Spotcycle is mentioned on the website http://www.capitalbikeshare.com/stations, and I had a friend use it on my behalf on the weekend - it seemed accurate.

    I also agree with the time window concept, although it's really closer to 45 mins for me. My 8.5 to 12 mile commute fits in about 35-50 mins depending on route, road/traffic conditions and my...
