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.
