My name is Heather. I just moved to Pentagon City and am looking for people to bike and run with. Really hoping for people to bike with and to find some great paths to pick up some speed. If anyone wants to bike please shoot me an email or txt 410-980-6315. Also if anyone can suggest a good crossfit gym that would be awesome!
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
Freshbikes in Arlington has their last Tuesday night ride of the year. Clip in at 1830. Free food and beer to follow the ride. At least 100 riders and a police escort make this ride pretty fun ig not a bit surreal.
This is a link from another forum thread but is a pretty good reource.
That link has a lot of good information on local group rides in addition to the ones that get advertised on the clubs web page. I think that link also has some information on cycling specific clubs in the local area if that is of interest to you.
Go to the club HH, or better still, volunteer at Nation's Tri this weekend, and you'll meet a ton of clubbers.
Check out the run from Pacers Pentagon Row as well. They leave at 5:30am from the store on Monday/Wednesday/Fridays!
The closest CF gym is CrossFit South Arlington in Crystal City, near Long Bridge Park: http://www.crossfitsoutharlington.com/
I don't do CF myself but the online reviews seem positive. In any case, it's not far from Pentagon City.
The park is a nice place to run. The soccer fields are good for stride sets (when they aren't being used for soccer, lacrosse or ultimate frisbee).
I think Pacers also has fun runs at 7 pm on Tue. and Thur. Hudson Trail Outfitters (Pentagon Row) has a fun run at 6:30 pm on Tue. Check the stores to confirm the schedules.
