Please see the message below from friends of the blog Kidical Mass Arlington. First you ride bikes, then you go ice skating. Please do not ride your bike wearing skates. That could really mess up the pedals.
Events at Pentagon Row
When: Sunday, January 18, 2015 4pm (roll out 4:15pm)
Meet: Starbucks at Pentagon Row (probably inside)
Parking: Street parking (should be free on Sunday); surface lot at Pentagon Row (free for the first hour); garage under Pentagon Row (not free, but I believe Harris Teeter validates for an hour, if you need groceries)
End: Pentagon Row Ice Skating Rink (basically the same place as the start)
We'll roll out and (almost) immediately enjoy Arlington's new protected bike lanes (on Hayes and Eads). Then we'll turn into the neighborhood and enjoy the mostly flat neighborhood streets of Aurora Highlands, brushing by the very cool playgrounds and sprayground of Virginia Highlands Park (where we can dream of summer)...
After the ride, families are encouraged to enjoy ice skating at the rink, or to join together for dinner - there are plenty of options in Pentagon Row.
The ride itself will take place before sunset, but if you're planning on riding home after, you'll probably need lights. Given weather reports, we expect the road to be ice and snow free, but please keep an eye out and be sure to dress appropriately (we might need rain gear). This page will be updated in the case of inclement weather.
