This Sunday, June 11, Kidical Mass Arlington will join the Armed Forces!

Well, not exactly. Let's try that again:

This Sunday, June 11, Kidical Mass Arlington will RACE!

Not really that either.

This Sunday, June 11, Kidical Mass Arlington will meet at the lovely Virginia Highlands Park, ride (in a very non-racey way) around Pentagon City and Crystal City, including a sort-of-secret trail, and ending at the Armed Forces Cycling Classic races in in Crystal City. We'll get there in time for any kids that would like to to join the "kids race" at 11:30am (on their own bikes, of course).

More info on the kids races here. You can register day-of. It's free!

The ride is a relatively flat and easy, almost 3 miles on neighborhood streets and behind-buildings trails. All crossings of major streets are at stop lights.

When: Sunday, June 11, 2017 Meet at 9:30am (we'll play at the playground for a few minutes, aim to roll out around 9:45am) -- yes this is early, but we want to give people time to register their kids for the race.

Meet: Virginia Highlands Park, 18th St S and Hayes St S - we'll roll out from the parking lot closest to 18th St S, by the library

End: The Armed Forces Cycling Classic - center of the action at 23rd St S and Crystal Dr

The Route:

Parking is easy at the park and on neighborhood streets. The ride back is easy and less than a mile. All are welcome. The ride and race are free.
