HALLOWEEN RIDE: Saturday, October 29 4:45p Clay Park *Now with pizza!*

** UPDATE: ** Conte's Bike Shop, a new addition to this awesome neighborhood, thinks we're so awesome, they're throwing us a pizza party at the end of the ride!  If you could respond to the facebook event so we know #s, that'd be great but not necessary!

It's that time of year again: time to put on your costume, light up your bike, and prepare to eat copious amounts of candy! Kidical Mass Arlington loves Halloween and this year we're partnering up with the BikeArlington/WABA PAL program for a little Bike-or-Treat fun!

Slightly different than in years past, we'll meet at Clay Park in Lyon Park, where families can come early to ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL WEATHER. Then we will bike off through the Virginia Square and Ashton Heights neighborhoods! We'll see some of the spookiest decorated houses in Arlington, and bike-or-treat by the PAL Ambassadors (who will give us candy). Then we'll continue through the spooky parts of Ashton Heights and Lyon Park, including past (maybe through) a cemetery and past more fun decorations. [*Edit to add:*] Finally, we'll roll to Conte's Bike Shop on Wilson Boulevard, where we've been invited over for a pizza party! Arlington's newest bike shop has invited us in to enjoy some pizza and drinks, and of course to visit their great shop! Thanks, Conte's, we can't wait!

When: Saturday, October 29, 2016
Meet: 4:45pm - Clay Park - North Highland Street and 7th Street North (roll out 5:00pm)
Parking: Neighborhood streets

The ride back to Clay Park from Conte's is very easy:

The route is 3 miles and fairly flat.  We will be riding during dusk and it will be dark by the time you're riding home: be sure you're adequately lit and reflective!
