    Default National Geographic

    May 20th is Bike to Work Day, and again National Geographic will be welcoming and congratulating those who ride a bike to work. If we're on your route (or even if we're not), come by and join our bike party!

    At NatGeo headquarters, our courtyard will turn into a bikerís paradise for our fifth year as an official pit stop for DC's Bike to Work Day celebration. All cyclists are welcome to enjoy free food, complimentary bike repairs, massages, raffle prizes, a photo booth, and music by a local DJ. The NatGeo Climate Ride team will be there to tell you about our New York to DC ride in September.

    We're on M Street NW between 16th and 17th. The checkpoint is officially open from 7:00am - 9:30am.

    FYI no bike racks this year -- it was determined a great hassle, and something most checkpoints don't provide. There are a few public racks along the sidewalk, or you can prop it up or walk with it while you visit.

    The closest Capital Bikeshare docks are at K Street and 17th (TWO on opposite corners) and 17th Street and Rhode Island (in front of the YMCA). YES, CaBi bikes count!

    Oh fun! Thanks for the announcement! I work a few blocks from there. I'll try to remember to leave early enough to swing by.

    I made the run (by CAR, the horrors!) this morning to pick up boxes from WABA and goDCgo. NatGeo will have lots of giveaways and some cool raffle prizes.... and now I know what color this year's t-shirt is!

    Nope, I'm not telling.

    It's not exactly a secret, is it?

    Well it could've been. Show-offs.

    For the record, I like the color combo!

    The official twitter account sent it out today too: https://twitter.com/BikeToWorkDay/st...10668800217088

    We've heard good things about the t-shirt this year! (Only one person said it looks like the yellow striping on the asphalt)

    I think that's a plus.

    Camouflage for when your foot gets stuck in the clipless pedal and you fall over and hope nobody sees you.
