NoMa is quickly becoming the most bicycle-friendly neighborhood in DC. The neighborhood boasts many amenities and the BID is spearheading different initiatives to make NoMa truly Biketastic.
Metropolitan Branch Trail
The eight-mile Metropolitan Branch Trail runs through Northeast DC and NoMa, providing bicycle and pedestrian access from the National Mall to Silver Spring, Maryland.
Union Station Bikestation
NoMa is home to the only Bikestation on the East Coast, which provides secure 24/7 bike parking and lockers for more than 100 bicycles in an ultramodern facility adjacent to Union Station. The Bikestation is home to DC’s popular Bike and Roll rental system – and is the only place you can rent a Bike and Roll bicycle in the winter!
Monday – Friday: 7AM – 7PM
Saturday – Sunday: 10AM – 3PM
Monday – Sunday: 7AM – 7PM
The District’s bikesharing program makes bicycles available to everyone. Simply take a bike from one of the 150+ stations in DC and Arlington, and return it to a docking station close to your destination. NoMa is served by seven Capital Bikeshare stations.

Biking Ambassador Program
