Winter Bike to Work Day
Feb 14 @ 6:00 am – 9:00 am

It’s cold outside but that doesn’t mean you have to give up riding your bike. In fact, we want to encourage you to warm up to cold- weather biking on International Winter Bike to Work Day.

This year we will have our pit stop at Gravelly Point on the Mount Vernon Trail. No matter where you’re going (whether to work, school, errands, or a casual ride), stop by to say hello and grab some BikeArlington and Capital Bikeshare swag.

But wait… there’s more!
This year, we have expanded and added more ways to enjoy Winter Bike to Work Day. In addition to our traditional pit stop at Gravelly Point, we have partnered with four local coffee shops around Arlington. Simply bike to the coffee shop of your choice, show your Eventbrite ticket (on your smartphone or printed out) to receive a discount on a hot beverage or free pastry (details below). You’ll also be able to pick up BikeArlington swag at these coffee shop pit stops as well.  Click on register to learn more about the discounts and to register for Winter Bike to Work Day.

55+ Adult Learn to Ride Class
Feb 28 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

Staff from BikeArlington will lead this 3-hour class, designed to teach adults how to ride a bike. Start by learning balance, then each rider proceeds at his or her own pace through starting/stopping, pedaling and turning. The technique is fun, intuitive and very successful, but it takes hard work! Please wear comfortable clothes and bring along a water bottle and snack. Bikes and helmets will be provided. This event takes place indoors. Please register by February 24.
