Social Rides

Lunch in Shirlington Ride (Year Round)

The “Lunch in Shirlington” ride meets year-round on Sundays at 9:45am (for a 10AM departure) on the brick plaza in front of the Shirlington Library / Signature Theater at 4200 Campbell Ave, Arlington 22206, for a 16 mile loop on the bike trails of Arlington (the Arlington Loop: traveling first on a portion of the W&OD Trail, then the Custis Trail, the Mount Vernon Trail, and the Four Mile Run Trail). The 3-4 miles on the Custis Trail are hilly; the rest of the ride is pretty flat (average speed on ride is about 10-12 miles per hour; cue sheet available). 

This is a friendly, social ride; new people are welcome and will soon be part of the regular group.  Lunch after the ride is at one of the many restaurants in Shirlington (free parking in garages and lots). Bring a helmet, water, bike lock, money for lunch, and a bicycle in good repair with properly inflated tires. If raining or icy, temperatures below 40 degrees, or wind greater than 15 miles per hour, the ride will be cancelled. Email the rider leader, Ron Trueworthy for more information or for last minute cancellation news.
