Brush up on your biking skills and learn how to ride safely and confidently. The first hour will focus on instruction, practice and drills in a closed parking lot. After that, put your new skills and techniques into practice with a 12 mile bike ride through Arlington on roads and trails to Long Bridge Park and back (with a stop for drinks and snacks).

Learn from four League Certified Instructors, including BikeArlington's own Chris Eatough - professional cyclist turned bike advocate. Participants should bring their own bikes, helmets, and water.

Date: Saturday, May 5th
Time: 10 AM to 1 PM
Location: Meet at Quincy Street Parking Deck (15th St. N & Quincy St. Arlington, VA 22203) This is near Washington-Lee High School. Entrance to parking garage is off of 15th St. N. We will meet on the open air, top level.

Anyone thinking about joining us for this ride tomorrow? We still have some spots available and we really want to have a good turn out to justify bringing in instructors. There is something for everybody. Discussion, instruction, practice drills, and a 12 mile ride.
Yes, we will even have BIKE SWAG!
Everything is free. Go to this link to register:

Was thinking of taking the cross bike out to the trails tomorrow but if it's washed out from today's rain I'll come. It'll be a game-day decision though.
