Kidical Mass Arlington to ride to County Fair, eat funnel cake

They'd like you to join them. Bring a kid. And a bike. And a willingness to see agricultural competitions. If you have sufficient space in the bakfiets, maybe you can buy and bring home Arlington's Largest Eggplant. "Sorry, Timmy. You're gonna have to walk. Mommy needs the front for this giant eggplant" you'll say, ensuring his lifelong distrust of eggplants. Anyway, seems like a fun thing to do (the fair, not making Timmy walk) and if you're inclined to bring your kids to the fair and bring them by bike, then join the Kidical Mass caravan. 


One of the great things about living in this little urban-village-county that we call Arlington is that it has its own County Fair, complete with rides, funnel cakes, and agricultural competitions. And biking really is the best way to get there. So come out to ride the rides and enjoy the Fair with us!

When: Saturday, August 9, 10:00am (roll out 10:15am - come early to play!)

Meet: Monroe Park, S Monroe St & 14th St S, Arlington

End: Arlington County Fair, Thomas Jefferson Community Center, S Jackson St & 2nd St S; an easy 1.2 mile ride back to the start.

We start off at Monroe Park, one of Arlington's many cute neighborhood parks. We'll roll around the leafy neighborhood streets of Douglas Park, Alcova Heights, and Arlington Heights, including enjoying Arlington's first bike boulevards (9th St S and 12th St S), which parallel Columbia Pike.
