55+ Adult Learn to Ride Class
Apr 17 @ 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 April 14.

E-bike Demo Event
May 1 @ 3:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Have you been noticing more e-bikes on the trails and roads? Have you considered buying one but not sure how to choose one? Want to test one but you’re a tad scared to get on one?

Well, have no fear!

We’ve partnered with Conte’s Bike Shop to host an after-work e-bike demo. Come join us at Rosslyn Gateway Park for food, music and of course e-bikes! They’ll have a variety of e-bikes available to test out on the hills of Rosslyn. You’ll love how an e-bike will flatten those Arlington hills.

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.

This month’s book is Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. We will be riding to Shirlington Library to discuss this book.

It’s Season 2 of the Bike Book Club. We had a lot of fun and read + discussed some great books last year. This year thanks to feedback from many of you, I am adding in some fiction books as well. It’s a chance for you to meet some new people, go on a bike ride, and discuss a book you may not have read before. Why not join us?

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.
