The summer 2019 Yellow and Blue Line shutdown is coming and roads in northern Virginia are going to be packed! Bypass the car traffic by riding your bike to work. Or go multimodal and bike to the Crystal City Metro and take your bike to work on metro.

Whether you have always wanted to commute by bike or you are just exploring the idea now, our community education ride series is an inclusive space for riders. You will always have a great time on our rides, but they’re also a safe space to ask questions and practice to make this summer’s commute a breeze.

We will showcase the roads and trails in Alexandria that will get you to the Crystal City Metro for your metro ride and, as you build momentum, all the way into Washington, DC.

  • Ride start and end – National Science Foundation (near the Eisenhower Avenue Metro)
  • Start time – 11:00 AM
  • End time – 1:00 PM
  • Distance – About 10 miles
