I highly recommend it, Ron does a good job. Just remember, Arlington is not flat!

This is an awesome, fun ride. If you are shaky on riding in traffic, this is a great idea. The pace is easy, you will have plenty of time and no sense of being pressured to ride hard. It is the best community ride of the spring.

And who doesn't love libraries?

In fact, a year after this ride I went for a run, ran out of water, became lost and stumbled into one of the libraries. Because I had been on the ride I recognized where I was and went inside to cool down and get some water.

Looks like fun and a good ride for the kids in the W-L Bike Club.
Without googling, can you name all 8 Arlington Libraries? I only got 5.

Sounds very cool. I was looking to see if we could do part of the route with kids but the link to the route doesn't work

Looks great! I'm pretty sure I can make it. The Central Library is great - don't think I've been to any of the others.

Bump to join duplicate thread.

Thanks. The link to the route (from the library page) still doesn't work...

Link to my Garmin map (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/170371068) of last year's route. Looks like I also did a version of the Arlington loop in addition to the library ride. Also, ignore the spur out to Bikenetics in Falls Church.
