Kidically Bike Month! This SATURDAY, May 16 5:30pm Hayes Park

Happy Bike Month! We hope you're enjoying the weather and the fun out on two (or three) wheels. Our next ride is this Saturday (one day after Bike to Work Day, which will be awesome). We're going to start this ride at Hayes Park* -- come early, bring a picnic and enjoy this great park in what promises to be some amazing weather. We'll roll out (shortly after) 5:30pm and meander through the neighborhoods of Virginia Square, Ashton Heights and Clarendon, ending at the Clarendon Metro. Join us after for ice cream at Larry's!

The route is on the short side, and is pretty much as flat as they come in Arlington. All crossings of major streets are at stop lights. This route is great for beginners. The route back from the Metro stop to the park is short well signed, and involves one hill that's on the steep-side.

When: Saturday, May 16, 2015 5:30pm (roll out 5:45pm - come early to play and picnic!)

Meet: Hayes Park - North Lincoln Street between 14th Street North and I-66, Arlington

Parking: On the surrounding residential streets.

End: Clarendon Metro, Wilson Blvd and North Highland Street - join us for ice cream at Larry's after

Hope to see you there!

*If you were with us last month, you may be thinking "Hayes Park, that sounds familiar". Yep, we're back in my neighborhood, because I just had a baby (a boy, Milo, we're all doing great) and we're playing dealer's choice for another month. Over the summer, we will spread out the rides over more of Arlington. If you have requests or suggestions, please let me know in comments, or facebook, or twitter...
