Check out the Lounge at the Diamond Derby next weekend!

Community Forklift is helping out as a sponsor for this really fun-sounding event next weekend – their lounge will be built almost entirely of materials donated by Community Forklift!



The Crystal City Diamond Derby is a unique cycling event that combines speed, glamour, fashion and high-energy fun in a cool urban environment. We invite riders of all abilities to test their skills on our race course designed and built in the center of an underground parking garage. The Crystal City Diamond Derby features a variety of different race formats including a non-competitive open course ride, a head-to-head speed race, a courier-inspired scavenger hunt, team relays, and a special children’s course. The general public is also invited to try out the course or just watch the action from the chic confines of the Diamond Lounge, an art gallery and bar built in the center of the action. The D&Q River Ride, a non-competitive social ride originating in DC, adds a social component and a ready audience for the day’s activities!

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, September 29th, 2012 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.  Bike couture will take center stage between each race as Arlington Transportation Partners and The Daily Rider present Cycle Citizen, Cycle Chic, & Cycle Classic.
