The City of Alexandria will hold a ceremony Wednesday to christen eight new Capital Bikeshare stations.
The new stations are scattered throughout the Old Town area. Two stations have also been installed at the Braddock Road and King Street Metro stations.
With the installation of these eight new stations, Capital Bikeshare now boasts more than 175 bicycle docks throughout Washington D.C, Arlington and Alexandria.
According to statistics collected by Capital Bikeshare, riders took more than 203,000 trips on the system's red bicycles in July alone. Ridership has been rapidly increasing since the spring.
