Kidically Arlandria: Kidical Mass Alexandria joins the party!

**March 2020 Edit: crossing Route 1 takes extra care and kids who listen (both crossings are at lights**

 It's time to explore and expand and to welcome Kidical Mass Alexandria to the family biking party! Our next ride with be joint with our neighbors to the South, on their inaugural ride.

**Two notes for the start of the ride: 1) the Four Mile Run Farmers & Artisans Market, which is a nice, mile long ride from our start, has invited us to stop by before the ride.  Come by around 10:30am. There will be a special a raffle for kids on bikes.
2) The playground where we're meeting is officially called "South Park" and there's a sign for it from Potomac Avenue. You can get to it by going through the shops above the Harris Teeter (Massage Envy, Yvonne's, Paisano's Pizza, etc).  It's the blue playground, furthest west (not the green playground just east of it, which is locked).**
When: Sunday, July 20, 2014 11:00am (roll out 11:15am - come early to play!)

Meet: Playground behind the Harris Teeter at the Eclipse, Potomac Yard, Arlington (the blue playground) -- near South Glebe Road and Potomac Avenue, Arlington
Parking: At the Eclipse, off of South Glebe Road between Jefferson Davis Hwy/Rte 1 and Potomac Ave
We start off in Arlington, at the playground behind the Eclipse, Potomac Yards (it's the building with the Harris Teeter at Route 1 and South Glebe Road). We'll meet at 11am (we roll out about 15 minutes late, to give kids some time to play, put on sunscreen, etc) and roll down through the exploding retail of Potomac Yards, then around the leafy neighborhoods of Del Ray. After passing some great parks and exploring some fun trails, we'll roll back into Arlington and back to the playground. Those who want to continue on can join us in Crystal City for some yummy We the Pizza (we should get there around noon, in case you'd like to have others meet us there).
All are welcome. This route will be about 4 miles, and flat as a pancake.

It's always exciting when a family grows, and we are so happy to welcome Kidical Mass Alexandria to the extended family!
