We hope this message finds you well. Our team is closely monitoring the public health recommendations about COVID-19 and we are adhering to the guidance of practicing social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus. We will continue to monitor and keep you updated as we gear up for our Spring bike classes, workshops, and rides. As of today our events in mid-April and May are still on. Follow us for updates @BikeArlington on social media, BikeArlington.com, and the BikeArlington forum.
Remember that we all have a role to play in keeping ourselves and each other well—whether that is staying physically active by biking on the trails instead of going to the gym, traveling by bike, or strengthening community bonds by giving a friendly wave to a fellow trail user.
