Not all Capital Bikeshare stations are created equal. Some lack a sufficient number of docks; others are always full or always empty
. The station at 16th and Harvard, however, strikes the perfect balance between availability and convenience. From that station, it’s easy to bike toward several nearby neighborhoods, and there are almost always bikes available. The only downside: That 16th Street hill is damn near impossible on those tanklike land cruisers.
