The service will be offered March 18 and 19 from 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. and March 20 through 24 from noon to 7 p.m.

Those using Capital Bikeshare during the Cherry Blossom Festival are encouraged to keep an eye out for the #bikeinbloom – a pink bike put into circulation annually during the cherry blossom season.
