    Paseo por Arlington: Sharing Culture Ride
    Oct 9 @ 12:30 pm

    Join WABA and BikeArlington for a short leisurely ride out and back on multi-use trails to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. We’ll be uplifting Latinx and Hispanic-owned businesses and culture along the way and make a stop at Silvia’s Snow Cones for an icy treat on us. All are welcome to join this free ride.

    Where We’re Riding:
    Ride along the Washington & Old Dominion and Four Mile Run Trails – both are quiet, scenic trails that run through Arlington. We’ll do a short, flat 4.2 mile ride on Piscataway land starting from Bluemont Park (601 N Manchester St Arlington, VA 22203). The ride is a round trip. We’ll depart from the public bathrooms at Bluemont Park (the Wilson Blvd side), make our way along the W&OD, stop at Silvia’s Snow Cones off Columbia Pike, and bike back to Bluemont Park.

    While riding, walking, or taking a break along the ride routes, participants must maintain 6 ft of distance between themselves and others not in their households. During the check-in, Snow Cone stop, and while otherwise closer than 6 ft apart, participants must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose. Helmets are required for this ride. If you don’t have one, email us and we’ll get you a loaner. We’ll be riding on a paved trail for the duration of the ride and welcome you to bring your own bike. Don’t have a personal bike? No worries. We’ll reimburse your usage fee of a Capital Bikeshare bike – just shoot us an email before the event. Please dress accordingly in comfortable attire and bring water to stay hydrated.

    If you have any questions please email Evelyn Murcia evelyn.murcia@bikearlington.com

    Únete a celebrar el Mes de la Herencia Hispana con WABA y BikeArlington en un corto y tranquilo paseo por senderos de Arlington. Estaremos apoyando negocios hispanos por el paseo con una parada en Silvia’s Snow Cones por un snow cone gratis. Todos son bienvenidos y el paseo es gratis.

    Adonde Vamos:
    Este paseo en bicicletas va por los senderos Washington & Old Dominion y Four Mile Run – los dos senderos son tranquilos y están localizados en el sur de Arlington, Virginia, en tierra Piscataway. Iremos en un paseo corto y plano de 4.2 millas comenzando en Bluemont Park (601 N Manchester St Arlington, VA 22203). Este paseo será un viaje de ida y vuelta. Partiremos de los baños públicos en Bluemont Park (al lado de Wilson Blvd), pasaremos por el sendero del W&OD, a comer snow cones en Silvia’s Snow Cones y volveremos al Bluemont Park.

    Le pedimos que mantengan 6 pies de distancia entre cada participante que no esté en su familia mientras estén en bici, caminando, o tomando tiempo de descanso en la ruta. Durante las paradas y mientras estamos en grupo, los participantes tienen que llevar una máscara que cubra la nariz y boca. Se requieren cascos para este paseo. Si no tiene casco, envíenos un correo electrónico y le prestaremos uno. Estaremos manejando en senderos pavimentados por la mayoría del viaje y le invitamos a traer su propia bici. Si no tiene una bici, no hay problema. Le reembolsaremos el uso de las bicicletas Capital Bikeshare – solo mandenos un correo electrónico antes del evento. Vístase de acuerdo con el clima y su comodidad. No se olvide de traer agua y otras necesidades.

    Si tiene preguntas envíe un correo electrónico a Evelyn Murcia evelyn.murcia@bikearlington.com

    BikeArlington Presents: E-bike Demo and Ride with Rad Power Bikes
    Oct 30 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

    Join BikeArlington and Rad Power Bikes for a free event to learn about and test ride e-bikes!

    E-bikes are changing the world. With the extra boost from pedal assistance or a throttle (or both), more people can enjoy the freedom and joy of riding a bike, more of the time. Whether you’re a parent looking for a sustainable, easy way to do school drop-off, a commuter looking to sweat less, or someone who just wants an extra boost, an e-bike might be for you.

    We will meet at Quincy Parking Deck and hear from employees and owners of Rad Power e-bikes before going for a ride around Arlington to test out the e-bikes on trails, streets, and hills.

    Rad will have 10 e-bikes available to take on the ride and slots are first come, first served. If you already have an e-bike, join us on the ride to share your experience as an e-bike owner.

    Riders should be comfortable balancing and riding on a bike. The ride will be at a relaxed pace as new riders adjust to the e-bike experience. Helmets are required on Rad & BikeArlington rides; if you do not have one please indicate that when registering and we will lend you one.
