This Saturday, join the Alexandria BPAC and the Alexandria Spokeswomen for a family-friendly ride around Del Ray. The residents of that lovely neighborhood put on a great holiday light show every year and we plan to see it all on our bikes!
Please bring a functioning bike adorned with as many lights and holiday cheer as you can find and whatever else you need for an hour long cruise. Meet us behind the George Washington Middle School in the parking lot. You can reach the lot on bike from Main Line Blvd (take the Potomac Yard bike trail) or from Mt Vernon Ave: goo.gl/maps/A7YeQyS12Mq
There's a couple great options to meet parts of the group prior to bike parade at 2 Alexandria bike shops: Wheel Nuts (302 Montgomery St) and Spokes Etc (1545 N Quaker Ln) are leading satellite rides from their shops to the school parking lot. The Wheel Nuts convoy starts with a pre-ride happy hour at 4PM. The Spokes Etc convoy leaves at 5:30PM.
This will be a no drop ride, approximately 5 miles. We will be moving slowly and will wait to regroup if separated. Dress warm, as it's predicted to be a cold evening!
After the ride, everyone is encouraged to stop at a local eatery for a bite or warm drink. Make sure to bring a lock!
This ride will go on unless rain (or snow!) is anticipated. If the chance of rain is greater than 40%, we will postpone.
