Riding in winter can be a challenge because of shorter days and cold and sometimes inclement weather. But, there are extra benefits, such as burning more calories as your body tries to stay warm. If you have been thinking about riding in wintertime, there’s a great opportunity this month to give it a try.
Our friends at BikeArlington are promoting cold-weather biking on International Winter Bike to Work Day on Friday, February 14, 2020 between 7:00 and 9:00 am. To make it easier to bike to work or school or just for errands and fun that day, BikeArlington will have pit stops at Gravelly Point on the Mount Vernon Trail and at four coffee shops in Ballston, Clarendon, Crystal City, and Falls Church.
Participants can sign up here to get tickets for discounted hot beverages, free pastry, and BikeArlington swag to make your ride even more fun.
