People for Bikes Draft Meetup Coming to Our Area
People for Bikes, with help from The Bike Lane, is holding one of their famous Draft Meetups on 18 October from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at New District Brewing, 2709 South Oakland Street, Arlington, just off the W&OD Trail in the Shirlington area. Draft meetups, which have been held across the country, are networking events that bring passionate folks from the local bike, business, and advocacy world together to celebrate their individual stories and build on their collective success.
At each event, four speakers share short pitches on bike products, events, and other bicycling topics and creative ideas. This idea exchange is designed to help incubate bike businesses, develop entrepreneurs, and improve all things related to bicycling. The event is looking for additional speakers for this and future meetups. If you are interested, apply here.
The meeting is open to the public, and biking enthusiasts—that’s you, FABB members—are encouraged to attend to offer their ideas about how businesses can better serve the biking community and make biking better for everyone.
There will be beer and some bike swag to create a great weeknight party around the presentations.
Please plan on attending this informative and fun event. Beer and banter start at 6 pm and the program begins at 6:30 pm. You can find more information at this Facebook Event page link. You will need to RSVP using the Eventbrite page here.
