Wet but enthusiastic Bike to Work Day

Despite the occasional showers, many of the people who registered for Bike to Work Day rode to the six Fairfax County pit stops today. We helped organize the Reston event and we had a good turnout. 274 of the nearly 500 who registered attended, eating the Great Harvest bread and other food from Whole Foods Market, drinking coffee from Starbucks, and picking up the first copies of the Fairfax County Bike Map.

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins led by example by riding her bike to the event. She has a folding bike that she uses for rides around Reston. The USGS won the Employer Challenge once again, having won or tied for first every year, with 25 people receiving a free lunch from Whole Foods Market.

It was great to see so many cyclists our riding in the not-so-great weather. It was wet but mild and everyone seemed to enjoy the event.

Comments:
I got to the Crystal City kiosk and was disappointed that they did not have the map there. Where can I get a copy of the paper map?
 
Most bike shops should have some copies, although they are disappearing fast. You can also contact the County at bicycleprograms@fairfaxcounty.gov for a copy.
