HALLOWEEN RIDE! Oct. 27 5:30pm Ballston
That's right, Kidical Mass Arlington keeps rolling on through the Fall! Thanks to sponsorship from FreshBikes, we're having an AWESOME Halloween ride - with lots of treats.

When: Sunday, Oct. 27, 5:30pm
Meet (and finish): FreshBikes Arlington (3924 Wilson Blvd; Arlington, VA 22203)
(Plenty of parking in the lot).
Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3497262

Treats will abound this Sunday as we bike through Ashton Heights to discover the Halloween tricks of N. Jackson St, the spookiest street in Arlington. This ride is a bit shorter than normal - only 2 miles - and very, very flat. We'll be on neighborhood streets the entire way. It'll be a great ride for beginners - either kids on their own bikes or adults who are new to group rides. All are welcome! Costumes are encouraged (just make sure you can bike in them)!

The fun continues once we return to FreshBikes: we'll have candy, juice and hot chocolate (assuming we can figure out some logistics ) for our own little Kidical Mass Arlington Halloween Party. Come in costume and enjoy some time to mingle with fellow family bikers.

Note: this is an EVENING ride -- you should have lights on your bikes, especially if you're planning to bike home after the festivities.

Special thanks to FreshBikes for the treats! Happy Halloween!

So in case you skimmed the description, this ride will be AWESOME! Costumes! Kids! Treats! Halloween!

We could use some help ride-marshaling/taking photos (because there's only one of me, and I do not have Pete's skillz of taking photos while riding). If you have a few minutes Sunday evening (meet at 5:30pm, you'll be done by 6:30pm), PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come by.

Specifically, I'd really like to have at least one ride marshal, because we're going to do a U-Turn on Jackson St, and I was hoping just to post a person there to help making that happen smoothly. If you'd like to be that person, it'd be extra helpful if you were VERY visible and brought flashlights or something.

And the kids will be adorable, so photographers would be really appreciated. If you lived nearby, you could just walk over and snap some pics as we rode by.

THANK YOU

We had a blast. Thanks to all who came out, and especially those who came out to help (rcannon, Megabeth, Mark) and to FreshBikes for providing treats.

Jackson St is awesome, in case anyone is looking for a spooky ride...
