Disaster Relief Trials
Sep 14 @ 8:00 am – 2:00 pm

The Disaster Relief Trials is a bicycle competition which challenges participants to consider how their bike could be a resource during an emergency (with the hopes you will carry this knowledge to expand the scope of your bike transportation capabilities!). It simulates a disaster, blocking roadways, and challenges participants to use their bikes to pick up food, water, and other emergency supplies from checkpoints throughout Arlington County while completing emergency preparedness challenges and traversing obstacles, such as barriers and water crossings.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Beginning and ending at Gateway Park in Rosslyn, participants will ride to checkpoints throughout the County to pick up and deliver food, water, and other supplies, relay critical messages, and traverse obstacles such as a water crossing, rough terrain, and physical barriers. Participants can use a regular bike with racks, panniers, and/or backpacks, a cargo bike, or a regular or cargo bike with electric assist.

At each checkpoint, participants will also be presented with emergency preparedness challenges. Points will be awarded for the total weight of supplies transported back to the finish, as well as a successful traverse of obstacles and completion of the emergency preparedness challenges. This is not timed and the trials are not a race.

LOCATION

The start/finish location will be at the lower half of Gateway Park (between Lynn Street and Ft. Myer Drive) in Rosslyn (1300 Lee Highway), with checkpoints throughout the County. Checkpoint locations will be revealed at the event start.

FINISH FESTIVAL

Community members, families, observers, and challenge participants are invited to attend the Disaster Relief Trials Finish Festival. While the participants bike around Arlington, test yourself on emergency preparedness skills and get your family in tip-top shape for an emergency, including free bike maintenance and assessments. Plus, eat delicious food from local food trucks, bring the kiddos and watch them do our “Kiddie DRT” course, get free swag, play lawn games, try out new fitness activities, and more! The Finish Festival will be located at the DRT Start/Finish line in Gateway Park in Rosslyn and can be enjoyed by all (open to the public) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
