Union Station 8 Year Anniversary!

Celebrating 8 Years of Bike and Roll DC-Union Station!

 

8 years ago this week, our Union Station location opened it’s proverbial glass helmet to the public!  Since that fateful October day in 2009, we’ve rented countless bikes to visitors from near and far, been a go-to repair and service shop for the #BIKEDC community…and added lots of Five Star Fun to one of the country’s biggest train stations.
In celebration of 8 wheely great years, we’re running an anniversary special all October long! Receive $8 off full-day bike rentals and $2 off hourly rentals through October 31st. Use the code “UNION8” when reserving a bike online, for walk-up rentals, mention the code in person.
Check out some of our favorite #throwback photos from our first week in business at Union Station below:
