Adult Learn to Ride
Oct 28 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Adult Learn to Ride @ Quincy Street Parking Deck | Arlington | Virginia | United States

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.

Halloween Community Ride @ Trek Bicycles Clarendon | Arlington | Virginia | United States

Halloween can be scary…but riding a bike doesn’t have to be! Come join us for our Arlington Halloween Community Ride as we explore one of Arlington’s signature neighborhoods, visit the most impressively decked out street, and learn a few things along the way. So, don’t be afraid to bring yourself, your bike, your helmet, a sense of adventure, and a fun costume, if you like. WABA’s trained bicycling instructors will provide a fun ride and answer your biking questions, and our friends from Trek & BikeArlington will provide some tasty treats.

Registration is $10 to reserve a spot. If there is room, walk-ups are free.

Junior Ranger Ride or Walk
Nov 3 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Junior Ranger Ride or Walk

We invite you and your kiddos to come along with us as we learn about the National Park in our backyard—The George Washington Memorial Parkway.

There are two great ways to join in on the fun: a walk hosted by WalkArlington and a bike ride hosted by Kidical Mass and BikeArlington. National Parks Service Rangers will join both groups and share family-friendly information and neat activities. At the end of the event, everyone gets sworn in as Junior Rangers!

Both the walk and bike ride are geared towards families and kids, so the pace will be casual and slow. Everyone is welcome.

When you sign up, please choose whether you will be joining us for the walk or the bike ride. Note: the starting locations are different, but both events will finish at Theodore Roosevelt Island for a joint Junior Ranger ceremony.

The event is free, but please register online.

Join us on Friday, Nov. 30 as County leaders and project partners celebrate a new link in Arlington’s bike/pedestrian trail network!

This project constructed a 10-foot-wide paved bicycle and pedestrian trail along the west side of Washington Boulevard. The new trail section links with the project’s first phase, built between Arlington Boulevard and Walter Reed Drive, and provides a new north-south connection between the Arlington Boulevard Trail and Columbia Pike.

The event will take place along the trail on the east side of Towers Park, near the corner of 9th Street South and South Rolfe Street. After remarks from our speakers, Capital Bikeshare bikes will be available for attendees to try out the new trail!
