    Default Alexandria entertainment history ride -- Sat. Aug. 21 at 9:30 a.m.

    What was fact and what was fiction in Remember the Titans, the movie based on the story of Alexandria's 1971 Virginia state football champions? Where in Alexandria did the Foo Fighters record their Grammy-winning album There Is Nothing Left to Lose? What was Jim Morrison best known for during his high school years in Alexandria (hint: it wasn't his music)? Come find out on this free bicycle ride organized by the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (and yours truly!).

    When: Saturday, August 21. The ride starts at 9:30 a.m., and registration is at

    Where: The starting point for the ride is the Braddock Road metrorail station, 700 N. West Street in Alexandria. The route is about 13 miles, with a mix of neighborhood streets, bike lanes, and trails, including some hills:

    Who: Riders of all ages and abilities are welcome, and we'll wait to regroup if we get separated. If you'd like to join for just part of the ride, that's fine too. If you're interested in participating but are concerned about the hills, Capital Bikeshare has e-bikes available for rent.

    Bring a functioning bike, a helmet, and water. If you're not fully vaccinated, please bring a face covering as well. You'll be asked to sign a waiver before the ride.

    For everyone's health and safety, we'll be taking the following precautions:

    -- asking everyone to self-screen and not ride if they've experienced symptoms of covid or been exposed to a known covid case within the last 14 days

    -- asking people who are not fully vaccinated to give others at least 10 feet of space while riding and to wear masks during the stops (and also while riding if they can breathe comfortably while doing so)

    -- keeping an eye on local covid conditions, and cancelling the ride if needed

    Thank you for creating and leading this ride. It was great fun to learn about and see interesting sites in Alexandria. And it was a very 'entertaining' ride.
