BikeArlington and WalkArlington are throwing a picnic to celebrate fall weather, enjoy Arlington’s great parks and trails, and build community! We’ll ride and walk to local stores to pick up picnic supplies and challenge ourselves to carry things by bike and by hand. Then, we’ll return to Quincy Park to relax with games, activities, and more food. Plus, everyone will get a tote bag to decorate and take home and have a chance to win a bike basket and rack, courtesy of Trek Bicycles Clarendon.
The event is free, but please register.
Psssst, wanna know a secret? Riding a bike is a great way to get around! Okay, maybe you knew that already. On WABA’s “Sunday Secrets of Crystal City” Community Ride, we’ll open your eyes to a different side of one of Arlington’s signature neighborhoods. There’s just one thing about these “secrets”…tell everyone to come and ride along with you! We’ll explore some of Crystal City’s bike-friendly features and some of the lesser known riding areas. Bring your sense of adventure and your questions!
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.
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.
Let’s get multi-modal! Are you thinking about taking your bike on the Metro? Do you already take your bike on the Metro and want to get some cool riding tips? Just wanna do an interesting bike ride that includes a train ride? Then join WABA for a “Sunday Bike Trainin’ Day” Community Ride. We’ll explore some friendly routes to and from the Metro, take our bikes for a short ride on the train, and learn a few things along the way. Bring your Metro card or easily get a fare card at the station.
