Friday, September 20, could not have been a better day to celebrate our 3rd birthday, coinciding as it did with the beginning of Car Free Days and International Park(ing) Day. It was like the planets aligned for the best birthday ever! We really jump-started the celebratory spirit a full three days early by offering prizes to randomly selected Twitter followers who retweeted our stuff to make us look super popular. But the prize-giving frenzy didn’t stop there! Oh, no! By Friday, we were in full birthday party mode with perky, smiling staff members camped out at the Capital Bikeshare “parklet” on F Street, NW, and conducting a #bikesharetrivia contest while consuming an alarming number of cupcakes. Check out the photos of the event on our Facebook page. Please note the surprise visit (we invited him) from DC emcee/hip hop artist and CaBi enthusiast Javier Starks! Because we are hip like that. Thanks so much to absolutely everyone who stopped by and participated in our giveaways!
In related news, we also released the official 3rd Birthday infographic, which captures all the most riveting CaBi statistics of the year and is reportedly our most complicated infographic to date – you’re welcome!
