September Bike Book Club
Sep 28 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

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 September and you haven’t read a book since last September? 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.

What to Do After a Bike Crash
Oct 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

We hope this never happens to you, but if you were hit by a car would you know what to do next? Do you go to the hospital? Do you take pictures of the crash? Should you call the driver’s insurance company? All of these questions and more will be answered at the What to Do After a Bike Crash Workshop with our featured speaker Bruce Deming aka The Bike Lawyer.

Bruce works exclusively with people who have been in bike crashes and is a wealth of knowledge about how to handle a crash if you are the one who has been hit or the one who has witnessed it. Join us on October 3rd to learn more about how to respond in the moments after a crash.

We hope you never need this information but we do want you to be prepared with this information if you need it.
