Keep your keys out of the ignition, people! Go either completely car free, or just car light, to help support more sustainable forms of transportation for this year's Car Free Days in DC.

It's simple-- just swap your typical car commute for bicycling, walking, or public transit! Don't have a bike? Rent one of ours for the weekend and bike on over to some of these awesome DC events to celebrate the movement:

H Street Festival

Red Bull Flug Tag

National Book Festival

50 States and 13 Colonies Ride

PARK(ing) Day


And don't forget to take the Car Free Pledge for your chance to win some pretty amazing prizes this year!

On September 22, 2011, metro DC will be innundated with alternative transportation due to annual Car Free DC Day. Committed commuters pledge to not use their cars for one full day in order to combat traffic congestion, to promote a greener environment, and reduce gasoline demand. This international event will take place in 1,500 different cities in 40 different countries. Participants pledge to travel by train, bus, bicycle, carpool, subway, vanpool, walk or telework. Participants are automatically entered in a drawing to receive amazing prizes like a new bicycle or an Apple iPad.

Already a green traveler? You can still sign the pledge and participate in the drawing. Commuters can even get away with going “car-lite” by carpooling, but we of course suggest taking a bike!  Bike and Roll is giving away free comfort hybrid rentals for Car Free DC. To make a reservation, please call our downtown office at #202-842-2453 (free reservations cannot be made online).
