Arlington is going all-out for National Bike to Work Day tomorrow.
From 7:00 to 9:00 a.m., the county will be playing host to three Bike to Work Day “pit stops” — each with music, speakers, bike giveaways, local exhibitors and free food and drinks:
- Gateway Park in Rosslyn (1300 Lee Highway)
- Conte’s Bike Shop in Ballston (3924 Wilson Blvd)
- Crystal City Water Park (1750 Crystal Drive)
The first 8,500 people who register for the event will be able to pick up a free t-shirt.
The Crystal City pit stop will also serve breakfast and provide bicycle repairs and complementary showers. The Rosslyn pit stop will feature a performance by mountain bike stunt rider Mike Steidley and a Capital Bikeshare drop-off station. In addition, the Rosslyn pit stop is where the county will announce the winner of its Car-Free Diet Skeptics Challenge, which was the subject of a Washington Post feature earlier this week.
