The Month of May: Our Best Month Yet!
Bike to Work Day shattered attendance records yet again this year with 12,000 riders taking part! The Ballston pit stop had an enthusiastic crowd and for the first time in the history of this regional event, the Rosslyn pit stop had the most registered cyclists of any pit stop in the area (including the superhero entertainment in the above photo!).

Join Freshbikes in Ballston every Tuesday evening at 6:30pm throughout the summer for a small ride with 300 of your closest friends....yep that's right upwards of 300 cyclists!! The Tuesday night ride is a HUGE hit, and a great way to meet like-minded people and get in shape. The ride is a no-drop ride, so all abilities are welcome!!
Come join the Freshbikes crew for your favorite loop through Arlington and the surrounding areas. The ride rolls out from Mosaic Park which is adjacent to the store. But be sure to get there early as parking is limited, or better yet, just ride your bike on over.
