Capital Bikeshare is celebrating a milestone, as the popular bicycle-renting service is recognizing its two millionth ride.

The notable spin started at Potomac and Pennsylvania Ave, and ended fifteen minutes later at the Verizon Center. The lucky rider was awarded a free annual membership to Capital Bikeshare along with other bike-themed prizes.

By the end of next year, the bikeshare program plans to install 50 new stations in the District. The D.C. Department of Transportation predicts a possible three million riders by that time.

Capital Bikeshare is the first regional bikesharing program in the country and started as a partnership between DDOT and Arlington County.
