Saturday, July 25 - Trails & Trees

Ride along the Holmes Run Trail, visit the Bicentennial Tree, and make new friends!

Some of Alexandria's best biking trails follow the streams that feed the Potomac River. On Saturday July 25 we will ride along Cameron Run and Holmes Run to the western edge of the city where we will picnic and look for the Bicentennial Tree, the oldest in Alexandria.

We will meet Cameron Run Regional Park (aka the home of Great Waves Waterpark) at 10am. The ride will be approximately 4 miles round trip.

All are welcome!

  • Meet at Cameron Run Regional Park
  • Meet in the far corner of the parking lot between the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter and the batting cages. 
  • Ride down Holmes Run Trail to Brookvalley Park (5599 Holmes Run Pkwy) and look for the Bicentennial Tree  
  • Have a picnic/snack mingle and get to know your fellow biking families
  • Head back to the parking lot at Cameron Run Regional Park
After the ride, in addition to swimming & Great Waves, Cameron Run Regional Park offers miniature golf and fishing in Lake Cook.

Raffle, Ride, Play, Ride, Pizza!

Can't wait to meet other kidical families at the playground on the Arlington side of Potomac Yard at 11am? Join some of us at the Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market a bit earlier. The nice folks at 4MRMarket will be holding a raffle at 10:30 am just for biking kids.

If you haven't been to 4MRMarket, it's worth a visit. In addition to the produce & baked goods and & artisan products you'd expect from the name, there's also live music at the nice outdoor stage on the north side of the community building at 4109 Mount Vernon Ave.

After the raffle, those of us at 4MR will bike along the lovely (really!) Four Mile Run to meet our friends & neighbors across the water in Arlington. We should roll into Arlington around 11am, and roll out again for our 4 mile ride at 11:15. After the ride, pizza! More details are on the Kidical Mass Arlington blog.

Many thanks to our friends in Arlington for their very generous assistance!

It's going to be a great ride!
