Capital Bikeshare, the popular D.C. and Arlington cycling network, plans to provide two bike corrals on Monday for people who use the system to visit the Mall on the Fourth of July.

The bike corrals will be located at the U.S. Department of Agriculture station at 12th Street and Independence Avenue SW and at 10th Street and Constitution Avenue NW.

The corrals will be open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., officials said in a statement. Capital Bikeshare will guarantee a place to park at the two stations.

Officials warned that rebalancing the system Monday night and Tuesday morning may take more time than usual due to the volume of use Monday night. There may not be space at your final destination once you leave the Mall Monday night, and bicycle commuters on Tuesday may encounter problems.

Capital Bikeshare recommends checking the Spotcycle app on your smartphone to determine the status of stations before you start your trip.
