1600 M Street, NW
Between 16th and 17th Streets on M Street NW, in front of National Geographic
An event to unveil “Exploration,” the fourth in a series of artistic bike racks commissioned by the Golden Triangle BID. Designed by two National Geographic employees, “Exploration” is a series of circles, each depicting a different image found in nature – water, earth, moon and sun. “Exploration” calls us all to discover the world around us, including the neighborhoods where we live and work.

Since 2000, the Golden Triangle has installed more than 350 bike racks in the neighborhood.
