Bike Ride for Wellness
May 7 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

BikeArlington is teaming up with the Columbia Pike Wellness Festival to celebrate wellness with a bike ride. The Columbia Pike Wellness Festival will showcase the best of wellness on the Pike – for you that could mean a fitness studio, a spa treatment, or a neighborhood pharmacist. At BikeArlington, we find wellness in moving our bodies and seeing Arlington on two wheels.

Join us on a tour of Columbia Pike’s bike boulevards and the surrounding neighborhoods before returning to the Festival.

What to Know

This 3-4 mile ride is kid-friendly and will be at a social, no-drop pace.

What to Bring

Helmets are required. If you don’t have your own bike, you can grab a shared Capital Bikeshare bike or e-bike right from the station at Centro.
