Don't forget - Ride to Discovery on July 6th!

What African-American mathematician and astronomer helped survey the original boundaries of the District of Columbia in 1791? Where along the W&OD Trail can you find two of the boundary stones the survey team laid?

Where is the first house in Falls Church to have indoor plumbing?

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

Find the answers to these questions and more on the 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 trail, but we'll cycle short distances on city streets to visit points of historical significance.

We'll depart the shop at 8:45 AM on Sunday, July 6, and plan to be back to the shop by 11:30. Please arrive early so you have time to read and sign the liability waiver and be ready to go promptly at 8:45. No go in case of rain.

Don't just ride the trail. Ride to Discovery with bikes@vienna!
