Just one year ago, former D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty helped unveil a new bike sharing service and expressed high hopes for a fleet of more than 1,100. Demand quickly grew, and the widely recognizable little red bikes are now a part of Washington life. Today, the popular, often overcrowded service helps more than 17,000 District residents get around town, and plans to expand Bikeshare services are in motion.

For interested cyclists, Capital Bikeshare is throwing a first birthday bash at The Yards Park in Washington Thursday evening. The party comes complete with a moonbounce.
