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.

Mission: BikeArlington's goal is to get more Arlingtonians biking more often, whether they're commuting, shopping, or just having fun.

National Mall Tidal Basin | Tidal Basin Ideas Lab

The Tidal Basin Ideas Lab has new plans for building a more sustainable Tidal Basin, which is over-crowded and has limited (& shrinking) space. The Capital Trails Coalition recognizes that its an important hub for the region's trail infrastructure. What do you think?

The Tidal Basin Ideas Lab is an urgent call to action. Without prompt and extensive action, this national treasure will be lost.

Due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, APS buses will only be able to carry 11 students at a time; for routes that typically carry a heavy load of bus riders, this will require several trips back and forth to school. This is a big change from what we usually carry and means that we must […]

Hey— thought you might appreciate this post we did in advance of Bike to Work Week... https://www.facebook.com/salvatore.ferro.33886/videos/10157812309759681/
Legendary rock drummer Neil Peart passed away this week at the age of 67, from brain cancer. He was widely considered to be one of the greatest rock drummers ever. He was also the lyricist for his band, Rush. Despite his high profile as an internationally-known rock musician, he was shy and introverted. In this rare interview, he says that in the earlier years of the band, he used to ride bicycles in each city on the tour, to explore the city and the surrounding areas. If two stops were relatively close, he would cycle from one city to the next, while the other two members of the band would travel in the tour bus. He later switched to motorcycles but he continued to use the road skills that he learned from cycling. (After his daughter and wife died 10 months apart in 1997-1998, he traveled solo on motorcycle throughout North and Central America, covering over 55,000 miles total.)
