Shake up your Saturday morning routine with WABA as we ride through the streets and trails of Northern Alexandria! This 6.5 mile ride will take you along the Four Mile Run trail and through the Shirlington, North Ridge and Del Ray neighborhoods. We’ll stop at Nectar Coffee and Wine Bistro for a quick pick me up before cruising on back to Four Mile Run Park Plaza.

This ride is family-friendly but does include on-street riding and a number of hills. Experienced kiddos welcome!


Community Rides are a fun, friendly and low-stress way to experience bike routes and trails throughout the region. Our rides are an inclusive space for riders of all experience levels to get out, have fun and ask questions. Community Rides depart from all over the place and are designed to accommodate different distances and interests. Check out the schedule and find the ride that is right for you! Have any questions?
