    Default Phoenix Bikes: Treasure Hunt - Small Bites Edition April 30 - May 3rd

    Hey ya'll...Phoenix Bikes is at it again. After a successful Arlington Treasure Hunt in the fall, we're doing it again in the spring it's...

    Phoenix Bikes Treasure Hunt: Small Bites Edition (Electric Boogaloo?)
    April 30 - May 3rd
    Proceeds benefit Phoenix Bikes
    More Details and Registration Here.

    For this “small bites edition” of the hunt, you will be taken on a delightful adventure around Arlington to discover some of our true community treasures: locally owned eateries! Whether they’ve been cooking up sizzling pupusas, dunking delicious donuts, or brewing the best coffee in town, these small, but mighty powerhouses have tackled COVID challenges in extraordinary ways, and it’s time to celebrate them.

    Using an online event site, you will be guided to each restaurant location to gather clues to win prizes, learn little-known facts about local shops, and taste delicious treats along the way. This ride has been designed to be flexible and social-distance-friendly, so that it can be done alone or with family, over an afternoon or throughout the weekend. It’s all about having fun and celebrating local spots that make Arlington our vibrant hometown!

    Thanks so much to our sponsors, Lyft and National Landing Business Improvement District for helping to making this event possible. Registrants who sign up on or before April 18 will get a ride packet including some fun swag.

    More Details and Registration Here.

    Route info: You will be able to choose between two distance options (or try both!). The full route (~17 miles)--with starting options at the Crystal City Water Park or Bluemont Park--will loop through National Landing, Shirlington, Ballston, and Clarendon with a couple stops along Columbia Pike. While we've carefully selected our suggested route with safety in mind, the route does include a mix of trails and street riding. The shorter route (5 miles) is in National Landing with a starting location of the Crystal City Water Park. The shorter route was selected with younger and newer riders in mind and is mostly on bike lanes, but there are a few blocks of riding on streets without bike lanes where riders may feel more comfortable on sidewalks. Given the urban nature of National Landing, this is an open streets ride, so children should either be on a parent's bike (tag-along, child seat, family bike) or be riders who can ride in a straight line and confidently start, slow and stop on their own. Riders will receive suggested routes on the event start date through a special website designed for the event by our friends at Game Genius, so stay tuned!
