    About this Event

    It is that time of year again! Join the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Alexandria Spokeswomen and Phoenix Bikes for a free family-friendly bike ride around Del Ray on Saturday, December 15 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm

    The residents of lovely Del Ray put on a great holiday light show every year and we plan to see it all on our bikes! Please bring a functioning bike adorned with as many lights and holiday cheer as you can find and whatever else you need for an hour and a half long cruise.

    Meet us behind the George Washington Middle School in the parking lot. This will be a no drop ride, approximately 5 miles. We will be moving slowly and will wait to regroup if separated. After the ride, we will stop at an eatery nearby for a bite. Make sure to bring a lock! This ride will go on unless rain (or snow!) is anticipated. If the chance of rain is greater than 40%, we will postpone.

    Helmets are required and you will be asked to sign a waiver at the start of the ride.

    Registration requested at Eventbrite

    I spend all day thinking about bikes and talking to people on the internet about them.

    There's a rumor that Santa Claus will be making an appearance again this year.

    This year my trike is going to be decorated as a winter wonderland. Parts have been ordered just have to be delivered.

    No rumor, Santa did indeed show up.

    If I'm remembering correctly, I believe city staff said that Mt. Vernon was getting repaved next year.

    My heart skipped a beat, when I initially mistook that to mean repaving the Mt. Vernon Trail...

    It seems like it's been on the resurfacing list for the past few years. :-( Perhaps the City wisely decided to wait until after the current construction project between Thai Peppers and the old Audi dealership is finished, as they've made a huge mess of the southbound lane.
