Where in Del Ray can you find dancing skeletons, oversized spiders, creepy clowns, a ghostly carriage, and inflatable dragons? Come see some of Del Ray's spectacularly spooky Halloween decorations on this free, family-friendly bike ride organized by the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (and yours truly).

When: Saturday, October 30, at 7:00 p.m. Register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hallowe...n-189169329557.

Where: We'll meet at the traffic circle at the south end of Main Line Boulevard, just off the Potomac Yard trail (directly behind or east of George Washington Middle School), then hop on our bikes. The route will be about 6-7 miles, very flat, and on neighborhood streets.

Who: Hopefully, you! Plus a number of forum friends who have already volunteered to help with this ride (thank you, SarahBee and CBGanimal). Riders of all ages and abilities are welcome, including children and youth, but we ask that children younger than 10 be accompanied by an adult.

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 others at least 10 feet of space while riding
  • breaking into smaller groups for the ride
  • keeping an eye on local covid conditions, and cancelling the ride if needed

Bring a functioning bike, a helmet, bike lights, water, and weather-appropriate clothing.
