Getting Around Washington by Bicycle, dated August 1982.
This guide, prepared by the D.C. Department of Transportation’s Office of Policy and Program Development, provided information for cyclists about navigating through the District. The guide provides basic information about the city’s special bikeways, details the hazards of particular bridges and informs readers about rental businesses and cycling societies.
Included with the guide were eight small maps, which when laid out together show bike paths and suggested routes through the majority of the city. We’ll share these maps soon.

Interesting note: According to the guide, bicycles were only permitted on Metrorail on the weekends, with a permit (see Page 30).
