REI is opening their fifth flagship store in NoMa this fall and in this heated election season (especially in our town), they want to encourage the community to Unite Outside. So, they’re offering a weekend of completely free activities around the city nextSaturday, July 16 – Sunday, July 17 like district-wide free Capital Bikeshare rentals, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking on the Potomac, and an outdoor party at the Wunder Garten.
You'll need to register to take advantage of the free bikeshare. You'll need to get a code in advance to unlock the bike.
Most activities for this weekend are sold out (sad trombone), but free Capital Bikeshare rentals never sell out. Also you can visit Great Falls and C&O Canal National Parks for free, or get free paddling rentals in Georgetown all-weekend long.
