Biking in Arlington

Arlington is compact in size and laced with an extensive network of trails, bike lanes, and bikeable streets that make cycling to nearly any location in the County quick, safe, and convenient. 

Biking is convenient and inexpensive. It's good exercise, good for the environment and business, and makes for a good community. Biking reduces traffic congestion by taking cars off the road.

Arlington's bike-friendly infrastructure complements its walkways and public transit system to provide great opportunities for getting around Arlington and the region without needing a car.
