BikeArlington

BikeArlington BikeArlington is an initiative of Arlington County Commuter Services with the purpose of encouraging and enabling more people to bike more often.

BikeArlington is a combined effort of many – from moms and dads advocating for safe routes to schools, to County staff building safer streets, trails, and intersections, to business owners, urban designers, park planners and event planners working to create places and events that welcome cyclists. There is a role for you, too, in helping to create a more bikeable Arlington-even if it is simply getting out and seeing the community on a bike more often.

Shift to off-road trails made bicycling safer during COVID-19 pandemic

Despite a 4% 📈 increase in bike lane and multi-use trail ridership, injury crashes involving vehicles 📉 decreased by 28% in Arlington from March-December of 2020. https://www.iihs.org/news/detail/shift-to-off-road-trails-made-bicycling-safer-during-covid-19-pandemic

Lights! Was riding on an unlit trail before dawn and nearly collided with another bike coming the opposite direction. I had a headlight which illuminated the other bike just in time to avoid a crash but they had no lights and wearing dark clothing. Your safety starts with you.
McLain resident, Lynn Salvo, Progree Update: Here's an article from The Astorian (Astoria, Oregon) about Lynn Salvo's Pacific coast ride. The team is in Trinidad, CA today, 1,056 miles into the journey. The Astorian bridge was a daunting passage, but they have crossed many more bridges since! https://www.dailyastorian.com/life/weekend-break-cycling-for-peace/article_b410169c-1cc4-11ec-9513-8b35acffe9c3.html?fbclid=IwAR1bSXNJMz2t6vo3_ECaeG4uSVoR5nGtESaFZyTd-vp8EM3P7SL9w_049iU
Local cyclist Lynn Salvo is attempting a world record ride, to be the oldest woman to bike from the Canadian border to the the Mexican border. If successful this will be Lynn's 3rd Guinness record. Lynn and co-riders Brenda Mueller, Lynn Schoenfelder and Kurt Vangelder started on Sept 6, in Washington, are now 670 miles into the ride at Lakeside, Oregon. On Saturday they will cross in California.
