    I mean, I appreciate the hard work of BikeArlington to get its taxpaying citizens this nice benefit. I just wish it could be extended to Friends of Arlington or at least to people who drink in Arlington.

    I finally got around to getting my membership. Good for lunch time rides up to Courthouse (puff, puff, puff).

    Default Question About CABI Pricing

    As an economist, I've often wondered....

    OPEN QUESTION TO THE FORUM ABOUT CABI PRICING
    A 90 minute ride costs $14, but a 30 minute ride is FREE. Can you daisy-chain several, say 25 minute, rides in the same trip for free?

    I'm in. After helping launch the program at HUD (we are a Gold level corporate member) it seemed reasonable for me to have a membership.

    I'm loving my Capital Bikeshare membership this winter. They're better than my own bike in snow and ice and some wonderful other person does all the maintenance/desalinization.

    Not recently, but I've ridden them between Shirlington and work a few times with absolutely no problems. They're slower, but easy enough to ride even on most hills, although they probably burn a few more calories (a good thing). I think they're a great deal even without the discount.

    They are very stable bikes. I've run into unmarked ditches without tipping over. I ran over a screw and flatted a tire and barely noticed a problem until a minute later when the tire finally got too flat to ride.

    If I had run into those ditches on my tri bike, I probably would have wiped out.

    The bikes are heavy and slow, but they are great for certain types of rides. That includes errands like grocery shopping, if you aren't buying too much at once. It's easier to hang the bags from the handlebars than to do that on my mountain bike. The weight of the bags would make it difficult to handle the MTB. It does have an effect on the CaBi, but not that much.

    The one-way trip benefit is great too. You can commute one way. I don't have to worry about the bike if I decide not to bike on the return commute (because it's dark, or icy or because I have other places to go).

    Unfortunately, I'm not eligible for the discount. I've been a member since the 1st or 2nd week of the program, back in 2010.
