Basic Bike Skills
Oct 28 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Basic Skills Clinics are the next step for those who have recently taken a Learn to Ride class or who know how to ride a bike, but have not been on one in some time. Basic Skills Clinics focus on skills such as turning, shifting, braking gradually, and weaving and will help you develop the fundamental bike handling skills necessary to ride confidently! Our experienced Instructors will observe where you are at and will provide tailored instruction to help you progress to the next level. Participants move at their own pace and are encouraged to continue practicing these skills at home.

Notorious ARL Bike Ride
Jan 7 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Back by popular demand, this 18-mile bike tour will traverse trails and streets all over Arlington that have played a role in the county’s sordid and unseemly past. Stops include the site where former spy Robert Hanssen hid a trash bag of $50,000 for the Russians, the former workplace of femme fatale Lorena Bobbit, and the Deep Throat parking garage that factored prominently into the Watergate scandal.

Henry Dunbar, former BikeArlington staff and longtime Arlington resident, will lead the group and provide the backstory on the county’s most notorious people and places.

MLK Day W&OD Trail Cleanup
Jan 15 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join BikeArlington and WalkArlington in Arlington, Virginia on MLK Day, to clean up litter and debris on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail, a beautiful trail that’s enjoyed by cyclists and walkers alike.

Beginning on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail where it intersects with Columbia Pike. Look for the orange and blue Bike/WalkArlington tent on the trail near the intersection of Columbia Pike and South Four Mile Run Drive! We’ll work our way down the W&OD toward South George Mason Drive.

The  focus will be on picking up the litter and trash that gathers in the vegetation near the side of the trail.

Refreshments and some fun giveaways will be provided as a thank-you to all who come out for the cleanup.

Please RSVP on Eventbrite so we can be sure to have enough supplies for everyone.
