Next Ride: 10/5 - Arlington Fun Ride!!!

Kidical Mass Arlington teams up with the Arlington Fun Ride for a super-extra special Family Ride


When: Saturday, October 5, 2013  (yes, that's THIS Saturday)
Meet: 10:00am - Crystal City - 18th Street and Crystal Drive
Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3379060

Something new and different: a SATURDAY morning ride.  We'll start in Crystal City, after the intrepid souls doing the full Arlington Fun Ride leave for the (long and hilly) Arlington loop.  After a safety briefing, we'll roll out along the streets of Crystal City, then through the new and amazing Long Bridge Park.  We'll bump over the "developing" pavement of Long Bridge Drive and head into the Pentagon Reservation on Boundary Channel.  Kidical Mass Arlington devotees may recognize our jaunt over the Connector Road, through the Pentagon Parking Lot tunnel, and beside Pentagon City Mall.  After riding through Aurora Highlands, we'll join the festivities in Crystal City celebrating the Arlington Fun Ride and Pheonix Bikes.

Registration for the Fun Ride is encouraged (though not mandatory -- your fee does get you a cool t-shirt and goes to support Pheonix Bikes).

The entire ride is 3.5 miles and flat (only 102 total feet of going up).  It's a perfect ride for anyone new to group riding (with or without kids).

Hope to see y'all there!
