Capital Bikeshare has once again teamed up with the National Cherry Blossom Festival to promote biking to the cherry trees at the Tidal Basin in their "Bike to the Blossoms" campaign. Keep your eyes peeled for #BikeInBloom, the services pink reminder that biking is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to see the city in bloom.
The campaign kicks off on March 20, and encourages participants to spot the #BikeInBloom in the wild and post a picture of the pink pedaler using the hashtag #BikeInBloom on social media. Three entrants will win a limited edition Bikeshare Blossom t-shirt each week.
