Two miles will get you a lot of places, especially in Arlington.

It will get you to the grocery store. To coffee with friends. To church. To the park. To the farmer's market. To ice cream. To your favorite shopping destination.

And you can bike there. And have fun doing it. You don't need to go fast. You don't need special clothes. You don't need to be in super shape. Two miles only takes 15 minutes.

Woman: "Wow, it's so beautiful out! What should I do today?"

Man (on bike, with boy in child seat): "Hi neighbor!"

Girl (on bike): "Hey!"

Woman: "Whare are you all off to?"

Girl: "We're biking to get ice cream. Wanna come?"

Woman: "I'm not a biker."

Girl: "You don't need to be a biker. All you need is a bike and a fun destination."

Woman: "But I can't go fast or very far."

Girl: "It's just two miles."

Woman: "I'm not wearing any exercise clothes."

Girl: "That outfit is perfect."

The whole group rides together, the woman now on a Capital Bikeshare bike.

Boy: "Biking makes me feel like a did again"

Girl: "Follow me!"

The Sun: "Nice to see you all!"

At the ice cream store.

Girl: See, it's not about how far or how fast. It's about having fun exploring your community. Try it!

Woman: I'm off to the farmers market next!

Girl: Where could two miles take you?

All you need is a bike.

We suggest a helmet and a good lock, too, for all the awesome stops you're going to make. But maybe you need a little more information?
