Do you have a bunch of books that you keep promising yourself you will read one day? Or maybe you have a goal to read one book a month and you just realized it’s October and you haven’t read a book since last October? Well, let’s fix that issue!
BikeArlington in partnership with the Arlington County Library is hosting a monthly Bike Book Club. It’s the perfect event for you if you 1. Love to read 2. Enjoy bicycling, 3. Want to ride your bike with friendly people at a leisurely pace and/or 4. Want to read more books.
We will meet at locations close to a Capital Bikeshare station in case you don’t have a bike then ride to one of the county’s libraries to discuss that month’s book.
Join BikeArlington and Trek Bicycles for a family-friendly bike ride around Arlington to see some of the creative Halloween decorations. Feel free to dress in a costume!
This ride will be about 5 miles and will end at Trek Bikes with refreshments.
This ride is very popular so register soon. We only have 40 spaces.
This ride will begin at Northside Social where you can grab a quick bite to eat or some coffee before we roll out. There is a Capital Bikeshare station across the street in case you need to rent a bike. We will then take a short ride to Idido’s Social House Coffee where we will meet with Arlington resident and retired art teacher Joan Bickelhaupt who will teach us compositional approaches to sketching in ink, pencil, or watercolor.
Long summer days are over and Daylight Savings Time is almost here. That means we get an extra hour of sleep but it gets darker earlier. But don’t worry, we have you covered with our annual event Lighten Up Arlington event! This year we will have two extra pop-up stops to reach even more people. Come by one of our pop-ups to get some lights and reflective gear for you as you bike (or walk) this season.
