Hello all,

My wife (and BikeArlington Team C rider) is leading the new Cycling Tour portion of this annual event put on by Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE). Join her for a fun afternoon seeing the green sights in the County.

Event description: Tour local green homes and environmentally-friendly gardens! Talk with local residents about their experiences greening their homes and making their yards more watershed-friendly. Pick up resources with ideas for your own yard and home. Select between a self-guided tour or a guided cycling tour. A $5 minimum donation is suggested and all proceeds from the tour go to ACE to benefit environmental stewardship programs in Arlington.

The Cycling Tour portion will stop at about 8 locations around Arlington. The tour takes bike-friendly routes (trails and streets) and offers riders some pretty cool views of different Arlington neighborhoods. There will also be a rest stop at the TJ Rec Center part way through the ride.

A big THANKS to BikeArlington for providing cyclists at today's tour with swaggy hi-ves vests!


The weather was prime, the cyclists had fun and saw some impressive homes and gardens, and even cooler was the fact that we were faster from home to home than many of those participating in the tour and riding in cars. Ha! :)
