Kidical Massive was massively awesome -- thanks to all who came out, and especially to BikeArlington and KidicalMassDC for helping to make it happen.
For our next ride, Kidical Mass Arlington teams up with the Arlington Fun Ride on this
When: Sunday, October 4
Meet: 12:00pm - Crystal City - 18th Street and Crystal Drive
Parking: All over Crystal City (garages and on-street)
Yes, this is our third year teaming up with the Fun 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. After a jaunt over the Connector Road, through the Pentagon Parking Lot tunnel, we'll ride beside Pentagon City Mall. After riding through Aurora Highlands, we'll join the festivities in Crystal City celebrating the Arlington Fun Ride and Phoenix Bikes. And, just like last year, we'll have a police escort! Amazing!
Registration for the Fun Ride is encouraged! (though not mandatory -- your fee does get you a cool t-shirt and goes to support Phoenix 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).
Interested in a double, but maybe not a full Arlington loop + kidical ride? This year, if you preregister, you can start at any of the Fun Ride's 4 pit stops, and ride from there to Crystal City, which means you can choose to ride 16 miles, 12 miles, 8 miles or 4 miles (or just our 3 miles Kidical Mass ride).
Hope to see y'all there!
