Winter Bike to Work Day
Feb 8 @ 7:00 am – 9:00 am

On Friday, February 8, 2019, BikeArlington and friends invite you to bicycle your way to work on Winter Bike to Work Day (WBTWD). Visit our pit stop at Gravelly Point (along the Mount Vernon Trail near the Capital Bikeshare station) for swag and mingling with fellow WBTWD riders.

If you are new to WBTWD, receive a pair of Capital Bikeshare gloves (great for keeping fingers toasty!). If you are a returning rider, bring a new friend and you’ll both receive gloves.

Register to ride if you’re biking to work that day (it’s free!), even if you can’t make it to the pit stop. Invite your friends, colleagues, and family to join the fun.
