    Default Eleventh annual holiday lights ride in Alexandria -- Dec. 17-18, 2021

    It's that time of year again! Join BPAC and the Alexandria Spokeswomen for a free, family-friendly bike ride or walk around Del Ray to see the holiday lights. This'll be our eleventh year doing the holiday lights ride. We're also bringing back last year's popular walking option!

    When: Friday, December 17 or Saturday, December 18. Register for the 6:00 p.m. ride at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/elevent...s-218914929447, or register for the 6:30 p.m. walk at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/elevent...s-218922351647.

    Where: For the ride, 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, and 0.25 miles from the Braddock Road metro station). The biking route is about 5 miles, very flat, and on neighborhood streets. For the walk, we'll meet at 1316 Mt. Vernon Avenue. The walking route is about 1.5 miles, very flat, and on sidewalks along neighborhood streets.

    Who: Riders and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome, including children and youth. We ask that children younger than 10 be accompanied by an adult. Families with strollers or well-behaved dogs on leashes are also welcome to join the walk.

    For everyone's health and safety, we'll be taking the following precautions:
    • asking everyone to self-screen and not attend 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 space while riding or walking, and also to wear a mask at the start if it's not possible to socially distance
    • for the ride, breaking into smaller groups to make the groups more manageable
    • keeping an eye on local covid conditions, and cancelling the event if needed


    Many thanks to the Forum members who volunteered to make this event possible! I'm still looking for a few volunteers, so if you're willing to help, please let me know.

    Default LOVE this ride!

    Quick question: Do we sign up per person or per bike? Does a Tandem need one ticket or two?
