We’re hosting an indoor cycling party at Swet Ride this Saturday! Swet Ride (pronounced Sweet Ride) is a new cycling studio on Mt. Vernon Ave. in Del Ray.
We’ll sweat for 50 minutes, then enjoy some treats. The class will be small and there are only 2 spots left! After it fills up, we’ll have a wait list in case anyone cancels later this week.
Sign up at swet-ride.com and use the code ALEXSPOKES in the promo box. The $12 fee is due when you arrive at the studio!

All ages and genders are welcome. Free event.
BPAC Happy Hour at Theisman’s
The Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) is hosting another happy hour in Old Town at the end of this month. Our last one in the fall was a huge success, where we got to meet a lot of new people and grow the Spokeswomen!
