Winter biking winners announced

By Luke Rosiak

Capital Bikeshare's Winter Warrior contest were revealed today, with timing that coincides with the National Bike Summit, which is in town this week. (Transportation writer Ashley Halsey III, an avid cyclist, is covering the event.)

Prizes for the overall contest went to users of the bike-sharing program who took the most trips during the coldest month of the year. An annual membership in the program costs $75, and members are entitled to unlimited rides shorter than 30 minutes each.

Robert Solorzano won three free years of membership for himself, two more years to give away to others and a $100 Hudson Trail Outfitters gift card. He spent 6,289 minutes on the red bikes in February.

After the jump, other top winners.

Congratulations, all!

Car drivers stuck in their traffic jams will grind their teeth at this news. Also good.

We might grind our teeth until we do the math that says the winner biked an average of 3.7 hours every day. My commute isn't that long. Though, I wish I had that kind of free time.

Did he do 8 pick-ups & drop-offs (or more) of the rented bikes every day, or pay a lot of usage fees? It's $22.50 for a block of 3 hours.
