Group Ride Details:

Join us on October 13 for the 7th Annual Arlington Fun Ride This scenic, family-friendly bike ride will give the anticipated 250+ participants a chance to experience the paved, multi-use trails that make up the “Arlington Loop” while enjoying support from rest stops in Crystal City, Columbia Pike, Ballston and Rosslyn. To ensure the ride is accessible and inclusive of all experience levels, riders may choose to start at any of the 4 rest stops along the loop to complete 16-, 12-, 8- and 4-mile distances, ending at our Environmental Action Festival at the finish in Crystal City. Optional environmental challenges will also be offered at each rest stop for the chance to win raffle entries. There will also be a shorter 3-mile Kidical Mass children’s loop in Crystal City, suitable for riders ages 10 and under. The event is hosted by Phoenix Bikes and EcoAction Arlington, and supported by Arlington County, local businesses, bike advocates and other community partners.

The goal of the Arlington Fun Ride is to encourage individuals and families to safely use Arlington’s trail system for green transportation, fun, and fitness. New this year, riders will have the option to test their environmental knowledge at each rest stop as part of the national and local Plastic Free Challenge. Successful completion of each rest stop environmental trivia question will gain participants extra entries into prize raffles to be drawn at the Environmental Action Festival at the finish.


$15 / individual
$40 / family of 4

The first 200 riders will receive a complimentary t-shirt to commemorate the ride. ALL riders will get one raffle entry for each rest stop they pass through and an additional raffle entry for crossing the finish line in Crystal City and each rest stop environmental challenge completed. Raffle prizes will be drawn at the Environmental Action Festival in Crystal City, immediately following the ride (must be present to win).
