$4 million bike station !

A spectacular gem is an understatement.

The first bike station on the East Coast – the Bike Transit Center (BCT) paid for by the U.S. Department of Transportation and DDOT,  offers secure bike parking, a changing room, lockers, bike rentals, repairs and a small retail shop selling bike accessories. I rented a touring bike there on Monday for a reasonable $35. Friendly staff too.
