Bike & Kayak Ride

Summer in the DC region is hot and humid.

It’s a relaxing way to start your weekend. It’s a great event for a date or a fun outing for the kids.

  • Single kayaks $16/hour
  • Double kayak $22/ hour holds 2 adults and one child
  • Children ages 8 and up can kayak alone

Bike and Walk to the Market Day
Jul 13 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Bike and Walk to the Market Day

Right now, farmers markets are full of delicious produce and the weather is perfect for a stroll or ride. At the Arlington Mill Farmers Market on July 13, celebrate the best of active transportation and healthy food choices by walking or biking to the market. You’ll receive a punch card to keep track of your biking and walking trips to the Market and enter a season-long raffle. Plus on July 13, enjoy farmers market BINGO, a backwards bike, and other kid-friendly biking and walking activities.

All Summer Long

All summer long, the Arlington Mill Farmers Market wants to reward you for taking active, healthy trips to visit the market. Each week when you bike or walk to the market this summer, bring your card to the CPRO booth to get it punched. At the end of the farmers market season, we’ll distribute giveaways to thank you for making healthy transportation choices. The more weeks that you bike or walk, the more chances you’ll have to get rewards.

Get your punch card on July 13 only!

Sweet Treats Ride
Jul 27 @ 11:30 am – 2:30 pm

Cookies, pie, ice cream, and candy! We’ll have it all in the Sweet Treats Ride! This ride is for those with a sweet tooth or who have always heard about one of the locations we’re going to and thought I need to check out that place. So let’s do it! We’ll be visiting four locations. We’re starting at Nicecream which sells specially flavored ice cream made with liquid nitrogen. From there we will stop at Acme Pie to try one of their seasonal pies made with a flaky southern crust. Our next stop will be Best Buns to taste one of their yummy cookies or muffins. And finally, we will ride to Sugar Factory in Pentagon City to buy candy for later.

This is a family-friendly ride. Join us for one, two, or all four stops.

This is a one-way ride ending at Pentagon City Metro. You will be able to take the Yellow or Blue Line back if you like or continue on with your day via bike.

Single Slice Spin
Aug 10 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

We’re partnering with Pizza Club of Washington Meetup Group for our Single Slice Spin Arlington Edition. We will check out the pizza in three locations. Starting at Ballston Metro we’ll ride to Goody’s pizza where they boast of having a jumbo NY style slice. We’ll burn some calories as we ride to WiseGuys (my favorite) for a slice then end in Crystal City at We, the Pizza. If you love pizza,(and who doesn’t?) This is your chance to try out a slice at three places and meet some other pizza lovers while biking off those cheesy calories.
