You are invited to the Arlington Fun Ride on Saturday, October 6. The fun starts at 8 am at Phoenix Bikes in Barcroft Park (4200 S. 4 Mile Run Drive, Arlington 22206) with a 17 mile loop around Arlington on trails. Starting at 10 am, there will be a family bike Show & Tell, a bike rodeo for younger riders and a special short trail ride for children and families. Both rides are casual and family-friendly events with no racing or competition. Rest stops in Ballston, Crystal City and Rosslyn will provide bike mechanics, nutritious snacks, beverages and give-aways. A celebration at Barcroft Park will follow the ride, including music, a raffle and dance exercise. Some lucky child will win a custom bike refurbished to their order from Phoenix Bikes!
Supporters include Arlington County, Arlington Public Schools, Phoenix Bikes, bike advocacy organizations, local bike shops, businesses and other community partners. Registration includes a performance t-shirt for the first 200 to sign up at www.arlingtonfunride.org.
