Ride To Discovery along the W&OD Trail: Bikes @ Vienna To Falls Church, Sunday, October 19th.

What African-American astronomer helped survey of the original boundaries of the District of Columbia in 1791?
  • Where along the W&OD Trail can you find two of the boundary stones?  
Where is the first house in Falls Church to have indoor plumbing?

What Falls Church resident was inducted as an inaugural member of the Black Athletes Hall of Fame, along with Jesse Owens, Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, and Mohammed Ali?  
  • Why did he and his wife put their lives on the line in 1915 in the struggle for civil rights?  

Find the answers on the next Bikes at Vienna Ride To Discovery along the W&OD Trail!  The route is about 16 miles round-trip.  Most of the ride will be on the W&OD Trail, but we’ll also cycle on city streets for short distances to visit sites of historic significance.  

The ride will take place on Sunday, October 19, leaving from the Bikes at Vienna parking lot at 8:45 AM.  Please arrive early so that you have time to read and sign the liability waiver and get your bike ready to go promptly at 8:45.   

Don’t just ride the W&OD.  Ride To Discovery with Bikes at Vienna!
