Before the leaves left the trees we gathered on North Glebe Road in Arlington to pick up trash and make this widely used stretch of road safer for everyone. It’s sad to see how much trash accumulates along this pretty stretch of road however we are very motivated to keep it clean and free of glass or debris which might hurt anyone riding there. For information on adopting your own stretch of highway, either google “Adopt A Highway” and add your location or for VA residents click HERE .
Claudette and Tim utilized our VW Golf SportWagen from Lindsay Volkswagon , as versatile as a pickup yet as stylish as a sports car!
I have a profound respect for the people on this team who constantly take time out of their lives to give back to the community in which they live. I hope to see other cycling teams in the area follow suit and dedicate some time away from chasing podiums to cleaning the streets we all ride (unfortunately there is litter everywhere, even in such an educated community).
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you see some litter along this road which needs to be picked up, and as always thank you for reading! –Jason Berry
