May 18, 2014: Taste of Kidical!

*Update: The wonderful people at Taste of Arlington are giving each of our riders a ticket for their delicious goodies! Let us know how many you're bringing along to for the ride to make sure we get enough tickets: comment below or RSVP to our facebook event.

Can you believe it's been a year?  Our very first Kidical Mass Arlington ride was just about a year ago.  We had an awesome time riding around Lubber Run and on the Bluemont Trail and ending up at the Taste of Arlington. 

This year, we're headed back to the Bluemont Trail and Taste of Arlington, but we're trying a new park to start, we're going to stop for a short playdate with a caboose and we'll ride through a section of Arlington Kidical Mass hasn't visited yet (with the requirement for flat rides, we're going to run out of these soon).  It promises to be amazing and fun, and quite taste-y.

When: Sunday, May 18, 2014 11:00am (roll out 11:15am)

Meet: Lacey Woods Park - at the play structure (near the restrooms on the map)
Parking: On the surrounding residential streets - I've heard Edison is a good bet.

End: Taste of Ballston -- Wilson Blvd & Glebe Road. 


Bonus stop: Bluemont Junction Park - we'll stop for a quick (5-10 minute) look at the Caboose and group picture 

Note: The end is about a mile from the beginning.  The best route between the two, is here. Parking near the end in Ballston isn't the easiest, so I'd recommend parking at the start, and biking back at the end.  If folks want to pick a time to meet and head back, I'll be happy to lead that mini-ride.

Hope to see you there!


  1. Hey dasgeh, I'm hoping to make this one with one of my kids, if it's not too late to RSVP.

    Parking is pretty easy at Lacey Woods (we go there all the time).

  2. Dasgeh - put me down as a tentative 'Bilsko + 2' for tomorrow. Hope its not too last-minute!

  3. Babycyclo and I might join too! If we don't see you at Lacey woods well head to the caboose!
