BikeArlington and WalkArlington are throwing a picnic to celebrate fall weather, enjoy Arlington’s great parks and trails, and build community! We’ll ride and walk to local stores to pick up picnic supplies and challenge ourselves to carry things by bike and by hand. Then, we’ll return to Quincy Park to relax with games, activities, and more food. Plus, everyone will get a tote bag to decorate and take home and have a chance to win a bike basket and rack, courtesy of Trek Bicycles Clarendon.
The event is free, but please register.
Riding your bike doesn’t have to be stressful. Join us for a morning of skills, confidence, and community building.
We’ll spend some time on a few specific bike handling skills, then go for a short ride and talk about strategies for riding in different road, bike lane, and trail situations. Bring questions!
By the time you head home, you’ll feel more confident, comfortable, and happy on your bike. Plus it’s a blast.
Psssst, wanna know a secret? Riding a bike is a great way to get around! Okay, maybe you knew that already. On WABA’s “Sunday Secrets of Crystal City” Community Ride, we’ll open your eyes to a different side of one of Arlington’s signature neighborhoods. There’s just one thing about these “secrets”…tell everyone to come and ride along with you! We’ll explore some of Crystal City’s bike-friendly features and some of the lesser known riding areas. Bring your sense of adventure and your questions!
BikeshareHack Night is a show & tell of apps and data visualizations about Capital Bikeshare and any other bikeshare systems (and hey why not include scooters). This is our first time at the new WeWork Labs in Southeast DC (near Nationals Park). They will be checking IDs; when you RSVP you’ll be asked for your full name for this reason.
Doors open at 6:00 with food courtesy of new sponsor Lyft. Program starts at 6:30.
This 3-hour class is designed to teach adults how to ride a bike. We start by teaching balance, then each rider proceeds at their own pace through starting/stopping, pedaling, and turning.
Our technique is fun, intuitive, and very successful! But it also will take hard work! Please wear closed-toe shoes, comfortable clothes, and bring along some water, a snack, and weather-appropriate outerwear.
