Where We’re Riding:
Join us for a ride along the W&OD and Four Mile Run Trails – both are quiet, scenic trails that run through the suburbs of Virginia. We’ll do a short, flat 4.2 mile ride on Piscataway land starting from Bluemont Park (601 N Manchester St Arlington, VA 22203). The ride is a round trip. We’ll depart from the public bathrooms at Bluemont Park (the Wilson Blvd side), make our way along the W&OD, take a break at Glencarlyn Park and talk about the article, and then circle back on Four Mile Run Trail to the start.
What We’re Reading:
This ride is in partnership with the Hispanic Access Foundation’s Latino Conservation Week. For this Trail Chat we’ll be reading Why Being Green Comes Naturally to Us Latinos from Grist. This article explores the intersection between climate change and culture and how marginalized groups, such as Latinxs, are often intentionally left out of policy decision-making.
