Arlington Disaster Relief Trials 2019

Event Description

The Disaster Relief Trials is a bicycle competition which challenges participants to consider how their bike could be a resource during an emergency (with the hopes you will carry this knowledge to expand the scope of your bike transportation capabilities!). It simulates a disaster blocking roadways, and challenges participants to use their bikes to pick up food, water and other emergency supplies from checkpoints throughout Arlington County while completing emergency preparedness challenges and traversing obstacles, such as barriers and water crossings. Community members, families, observers, and Disaster Relief Trial (DRT) participants are invited to attend the DRT Finish Festival! While the participants bike around Arlington, test yourself on emergency preparedness skills and get your family in tip-top shape for an emergency, including free bike maintenance/assessment. Plus, eat delicious food from local food trucks, bring the kiddos and watch them do our “Kiddie DRT” course, get free swag, play lawn games, try out new fitness activities, and more!
