Special Event

WTF – Let’s Meet Up!

Saturday, November 7, 2020, 10:00 AM

Virginia Highlands Park


Are you newer to biking or recently dusted off your old bike? Do you have questions about how to ride safely in traffic or on trails? Want to know more about how to prepare for your ride? Identify as woman/trans/femme BIPOC and want to connect with others? Join us for an in-person meet up where League Cycling Instructors help answer any questions you might have and share bike handling skills. (Sound familiar? We were inspired by Danielle Christina Garibay Worthington’s event).

If this isn’t you, we have other fun events happening over at waba.org/fun that you should definitely check out!

This event will take place on Piscataway land at Virginia Highlands Park (1600 S Hayes St. Arlington, VA, 22202) on November 7th, 2020 from 10:00AM to 12:00PM. We will try to meet on the concrete area behind the fire station. Participants must bring their own bike and helmet, wear a mask that covers both their nose and mouth for the duration of the event, and identify as woman/trans/femme and BIPOC.
