Riding in the Merrifield-Vienna area can be intimidating. But with the arrival of the Mosaic District, and additional bike lanes along Gallows Road, there are new ways to get around and great destinations within reach of Vienna and Dunn Loring.

This ride will show you how to make the most of the bike-friendly routes.

Adult WABA members welcome, children over the age of 14 accompanied by a WABA member are welcome too.

It is a great time to become a WABA member if you were hesitating.

After the ride, have lunch at the Lost Dog Cafe, home of hundreds of varieties of beer (and really good pizza).

Just out of curiosity.. of those who attend the FreshBikes weekly ride out of Mosaic... how many of those folks ride to the shop compared to driving (with their bikes on the car)?

I think more that half ride there -- I don't go every week, but when I do, I ride. Dcv and I believe acc also ride there. Of course our fearless leader Dirt rides there and everywhere else, too.

It tends to attract commuting cyclists on their way home, so far. That may change as it gets more popular.

Oh gosh, I was thinking most are riding in. I know when it gets very hot some people choose to peel off and ride home rather than come back to the shop.

Yeah, most are riding in for sure.

Is there a ride tonight? I won't be there. Going to the Natz game. Hope it doesn't rain!

Hi, just bumping this thread, since the event is on Saturday. Please join us, it should be fun. At the very least you can see how my Dahon handles stretches of the Cross-County Trail.
