The Arlington Fun Ride is new and improved, starting and ending this year at Phoenix Bike's new location at the Arlington Mill Community Center. This year, the Kidical Mass ride will offer a short, easy 2 mile route, suitable for new riders.
Also, our friends at ElectriCity Bikes in Tenleytown are bringing some cargo bikes to test ride! You can come for 2 mile ride and/or just come to Arlington Mill to see the cargo bikes in person and take test rides.
And there's more! Arlington Mill will also host the family-friendly finish festival for the Fun Ride, complete with moonbounce, face painting, raffles (starting at 11am), snow cones and lots of family fun! It will be going from 10am - noon, so we can enjoy it after the ride.
When: Saturday, October 5
Meet: 10:00am - Arlington Mill Community Center S Dinwiddie St & Columbia Pike - roll out 10:15am
Parking: Arlington Mill Community Center
Yes, this is our sixth year teaming up with the Fun Ride! We'll start at the Arlington Mill Community Center, 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 Four Mile Run trail, riding an easy 2 miles to the Long Branch Nature Center and back. The route is as flat as we get in Arlington. Perfect for kids new to riding and anyone new to groups, or who just wants a very relaxed, easy route.
Registration for the Fun Ride is encouraged! (though not mandatory -- if you register by 9/25, you a cool t-shirt and your donation goes to support Phoenix Bikes, register for the 2 mile option).
Hope to see y'all there!
