Gearing up for Spring
With the cold finally behind us, Bike Friendly Arlington has got some social rides and outreach events coming up. That’s right, it’s bicycle season! Check the calendar for all of our events.
Two weekly rides:
- Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. we will leave from the patio of the Twisted Root Burger, Hooligan’s Pub and Freebird’s World Burrito. 310 E Abram St, Arlington, TX 76010. Facebook event
- Sunday at 2:30 p.m. we will be leaving from the Levitt Pavilion. 100 West Abram Street
Arlington, TX 76010 Facebook event
The pace and distance often varies. We ride on the road and on bike paths. Ride leaders will set a pace appropriate for the group and the route is usually set ahead of time. We follow all the rules of the road. Lights are required, but water and a helmet are highly recommended.
Last year’s canned food drive was so much fun and so well received, we’ve decided to do it again. The drive will benefit Mission Arlington. We are looking for bicyclists willing to pick up donations from Central Arlington neighborhoods and delivery them, via bikes, to Mission Arlington.
You can download the flyer here. We will meet up with everyone on Saturday, February 23rd to pick up cans. We will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Mission Arlington parking lot. 210 W South St, Arlington, TX the parking lot is on the south side of the building. From there we’ll fan out from there to neighborhoods around UTA and downtown. If you want to pass them out in your own neighborhood, let us know and we’ll find ways to cover it. We’ll also be distributing them after some of the group rides through out the month. Facebook event.
But wait, there’s MORE!
