    Default Alexandria Earth Day bike rides on 4/27/19

    Where will Alexandria's first two-way protected bike lane be installed? Where is the oldest surviving bridge in Alexandria? Which environmental project won a Governor's Environmental Excellence Award in 2018? Find out the answers to these questions and much more on BPAC's Earth Day Rides on Saturday, April 27.

    Why: Bike to see recent or planned infrastructure projects designed to improve Alexandria's water, air, and quality of life. There will be two bike rides, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and they will cover different projects. Sign up for either ride, or do both!
    Where: Both rides begin and end at Alexandria's Earth Day celebration, at George Washington Middle School (1005 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria VA 22301).
    When: Saturday, April 27. The morning ride will be from 9:30-11:00 a.m., and the afternoon ride will be from 1:00-3:00 p.m. See route details below.
    Who: These family-friendly, no-drop rides are organized by Alexandria's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (and yours truly!) and are open to everyone. The routes are flat, mostly on trails or low-stress neighborhood streets.

    The 9:30 am. ride will go through the Potomac Yard and Del Ray neighborhoods. Along the 5-mile route, we'll discuss projects like the creation of the Potomac Yard Trail, the future Potomac Yard metro station, the Four Mile Run stream bank restoration project, the planned Mount Jefferson traffic garden, and the Simpson community garden. Details and registration at

    The 1:00 p.m. ride will go through the Old Town North and Old Town neighborhoods. Along the 8-mile route, we'll learn about projects like the planned improvements for the Mount Vernon Trail-Abingdon Drive intersection, the planned linear park in Old Town North, the River Renew project that will solve Alexandria's combined sewer system issues, and the future extension of the Old Cameron Run Trail.

    These are going to be two great rides with the typical amazing Komorebi planning. Iíll be attending the afternoon ride and Iím bummed Iíll miss the morning one since Iíll be volunteering at BPACís Earth Day Bike Rodeo.

    I hope I see all the forum people there.
