Kidical Armed Forces: Sunday, June 11, 9:30am Virginia Highlands Park



This Sunday, June 11, Kidical Mass Arlington will join the Armed Forces!  

Well, not exactly.  Let's try that again: 

This Sunday, June 11, Kidical Mass Arlington will RACE!

Not really that either. 

This Sunday, June 11, Kidical Mass Arlington will meet at the lovely Virginia Highlands Park, ride (in a very non-racey way) around Pentagon City and Crystal City, including a sort-of-secret trail, and ending at the Armed Forces Cycling Classic races in in Crystal City.  We'll get there in time for any kids that would like to to join the "kids race" at 11:30am (on their own bikes, of course).

More info on the kids races here.  You can register day-of.  It's free!

The ride is a relatively flat and easy, almost 3 miles on neighborhood streets and behind-buildings trails. All crossings of major streets are at stop lights.

When: Sunday, June 11, 2017 Meet at 9:30am (we'll play at the playground for a few minutes, aim to roll out around 9:45am) -- yes this is early, but we want to give people time to register their kids for the race.


Parking is easy at the park and on neighborhood streets. The ride back is easy and less than a mile (route here).  All are welcome. The ride and race are free.

We'll meet at 9:30am at Arlington Hall West park, and meander around the Barcroft neighborhood, ending at the bike rodeo.  This ride will be on the short side, with a few little ups and downs, but no challenging hills. The return ride to the park is short and easy.

Kidical Mass families are invited to stay to enjoy the festivities and to show off their own family riding set up.

Also, Phoenix will be collecting bike donations at the rodeo. Bring those bikes that are collecting dust and their youth mechanics will fix them up and get them to a new home!
