Women’s Equality Day bicycle ride
Celebrate Women’s Equality Day by visiting sites associated with the fight for women’s rights in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax!
This free event — which is organized by the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Alexandria Celebrates Women, and the Alexandria Spokeswomen — will have three parts. You are welcome to join for one part, two parts, or all three.
For the first part of the event, we’ll meet at the Braddock Road metro station, then hop on our bikes and ride to various stops in Alexandria and Arlington associated with women’s equality. We’ll end at the Pentagon City metro station, where riders will have the choice of taking the metro back to Braddock Road or continuing with part two of the ride.
For the second part of the event, we’ll take the metro to the Franconia-Springfield metro station, then hop on our bikes and ride to the Lucy Burns Museum at the Workhouse Arts Center in Occoquan. Admission to the Lucy Burns Museum is free for the gallery space and $5 for a guided cellblock tour.
For the third part of the event, we’ll walk or ride between the Lucy Burns Museum and the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial. Admission to the memorial is free. Anybody who is not biking is welcome to meet the group at the Lucy Burns Museum and then walk or drive to the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial, which is about 1.3 miles away.
After visiting the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial and stopping for a late lunch at the Brickmaker’s Cafe, we’ll bike back to the Franconia-Springfield metro station.
