From BikeArlington Events & Outreach Coordinator, Zanna Worzella:
Every Tuesday night is bike night in Arlington! BikeArlington is hosting weekly gatherings where people can chat and learn about biking in Arlington, and in the DC region. The sessions are informal, social and informative and are open to the public – this includes people don’t ride or are considering to ride a bike to people who ride 20 miles a day just to get to work. Each week, a different topic is discussed – riding safely in traffic; equipment, clothing and gear (including a fix-a-flat tutorial), and routes and directions. WABA will lead 1 of 2 traffic riding/safety sessions each month, sharing all of their experience and knowledge about safety while riding so everyone can feel more confident when they bike with traffic.
WABA will be leading today’s session that is taking place at the Westover Library. Specific discussions will include crash prevention which cover bicycle rules and laws, lane positioning, and hazard avoidance. But we leave the discussion up to you so please come with plenty of questions and we’ll make sure to answer them. We’ll have free refreshments on hand and will also be raffling off a FREE set of front and rear bike lights at the end of the session.
