In which BikeArlington, WalkArlington and AIRE spread a little Daylight Savings cheer with a light giveaway!

Content updated on 10/16/2017 to reflect 2017 events.

It’s the start of Daylight Savings! Which means that you get hungry an hour before lunch and your sleep schedule is not quite right. Shorter daylight hours means contending with dark conditions on roads and trails.

But, Arlington. It’s going to be okay. We’ll get through it together.

2017 Pop-up events

To help out, we’re hosting a few pop-up events. We’ll be cranking up some cheesy pop music and inviting our friends from WalkArlington to help us give out useful blinky lights and reflective gear to people walking and biking along the trails. Our awesome volunteers will be all smiles, standing at multiple corners to help people put the lights on their bikes.

We do this annually, and it’s a fantastic frenzy of lights and reflective goodies. Our hearts are always quite full as we watch the lines of little blinky lights wind up the trails into the night.
