Biking Around the Concert for Valor
Tomorrow’s Concert for Valor will have a number of effects on your ability to get around on your bike tomorrow. WJLA has a handy Google map of road closures (bel0w). Bikes won’t be allowed on the closed roads. Also note that bikes won’ t be allowed on Metro all day, not just at rush hour. If you’re entering the District from Virginia on the 14th St Bridge or the Memorial Bridge, give yourself some extra time to get around the closures on the mall. Ohio Drive around the Tidal Basin is probably a good alternative. There will be lots of pedestrians out too. Be polite! As far as we know, the concert promoters are not offering additional bike parking. If you’re biking to the show, exercise the usual courtesy: don’t lock to trees, bus stop signposts, other people’s bikes, or members of the E Street Band. UPDATE: Capital Bikeshare is offering bike corrals at 10th and Constitution and 12th and Independence. If you’re out on your bike tomorrow and encounter other closed or blocked streets, tweet at us (@WABADC) or send an email.
