'Tis the Season to Meet New PALs

December 7, 2016

This blog post was written by Annmarie, BikeArlington's PAL Ambassador!

Well, the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. There's a chill in the air, and if you don’t want to leave your house you’re…completely normal. But as long as you're out and about--celebrating the various holidays, seeing friends, giving back to your community--we want you to #BEaPAL!

PAL Halloween

Arlington's PAL Ambassadors love this time of year. On Halloween, the PALs gathered in Arlington’s Virginia Square neighborhood to give out candy as Arlington’s chapter of Kidical Mass rolled by in all their Halloween glory for some bike-or-treating. The PALs handed out not only Halloween candy, but also stickers reminding the kids and their ride leaders to be Predictable, Alert, and Lawful. Don't know Kidical Mass? Well, it's a monthly bike ride where families get together and go on an organized ride through the streets of Arlington. It's very kid-friendly and you can find more info here.

PALS with free giveaways

As the holiday season marches on, and it gets darker earlier and earlier, the PALs will be giving out lights and reflective vests to people getting around by bike or foot, in order to maximize their visibility and safety. Come join the PALs at our monthly brainstorming session, where we plan fun future outreach ideas: December 8th at Spinfire Pizza in Rosslyn! Sign up here.

And to #BEaPAL with our street outreach team, come out to the festive holiday-themed, cocoa-infused block party on December 16th at Francis Scott Key Park in Georgetown. Sign up here.
