Get Your Bicycles Ready for International Winter Bike to Work Day on Feb. 14

In the winter it can be hard to find the motivation to be active, but International Winter Bike to Work Day should give you some incentive to break a sweat! On Valentine’s Day this year, you’ll have one more thing to celebrate, as Bike Arlington is putting together a Warm Up to Winter Biking event to get the biking community together on this special day.

The event has two facets, a fun meet-up before work at a pit stop with the Bike Arlington crew and tasty deals at local coffee shops to keep you warm and caffeinated. In the morning from 7-9 a.m., Bike Arlington will be at Gravelly Point on the Mount Vernon Trail with plenty of swag, giveaways, and friendly conversation to start your day. From there, keep pedaling your way to work, but stop for a coffee or a pastry on your way! Local coffee shops are in on the celebration serving up $1 off a coffee or a pastry for all the carbs to get you through your bike ride home.All you have to do is show them your registration for the event. Registration is free on Eventbrite, so don’t miss out!
