If the stay-at-home order has significantly upped your reading time, consider joining us for our new virtual book club. We’ll be reading Bill Bryson’s funny and endearing memoir of his thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail, “A Walk in the Woods.” Now more than ever, many of us would enjoy cozying up with a familiar good book that makes us laugh!
To participate, simply order a copy of the book online if you don’t already have one and register here on Eventbrite. Registration opens on Tuesday, April 21.
As the date of the online event gets closer, you’ll receive information on how to participate.
This is an informal opportunity to connect with other Arlington, Va., residents who like reading and walking/hiking.
If you’re feeling festive, make yourself a special appetizer and enjoy a favorite drink while we chat!
Mark your calendar! BikeArlington and WalkArlington are joining Arlington County Public Schools on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 to celebrate the annual Walk, Bike & Roll to School Day and encourage students to use active transportation to get to school. We’ll be at this year’s focus school.
This international event is designed to encourage students to bike, walk, or roll to school while teaching about the health and environmental benefits of active transportation. Walk, Bike and Roll to School Day is also an opportunity to raise awareness about safe routes to schools and the importance of bicycle and pedestrian safety in neighborhoods and around our schools.
APS schools and students are encouraged to walk the walk all year long by adopting weekly walking and biking promotions like “Walking Wednesdays” and “Foot Fridays,” supporting formation of Walking School Buses, Bike Trains and other creative commutes, and sharing important pedestrian and bike safety information for all ages.
