NoMa is one of the most bicycle-friendly neighborhoods in D.C. Cyclists in NoMa enjoy four free air-pumps, eight Capital Bikeshare stations and D.C.’s first protected cycletrack along First Street, NE, which connects to the eight-mile Metropolitan Branch Trail. Running through Takoma Park, Brookland and NoMa, the Metropolitan Branch Trail is a hike-bike trail that provides bicycle and pedestrian access from the Union Station 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 free air pump.
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.
