Two Fairfax bike events on Sunday

There are not many public bike events in Fairfax County throughout the year. There are club rides (Reston Bike Club and Potomac Pedalers Touring Club) and bike shop sponsored rides, but not many major events. This weekend there are two, the Tour de Lee and BikeOctoberfest. FABB will hand out literature and have e-newsletter sign up sheets at both events.

Tour de Lee is sponsored by Lee District Supervisor Jeff McKay. The main "tour" starts at 9:30am and is a 10-mile ride around the district. It is very family oriented and police keep a close watch on the group. Trails and some sidewalks are used, and most intersections are controlled by police. There is also a longer, 25-mile ride around Lake Accotink Park that begins at 1pm.

BikeOctoberfest is sponsored by Revolution Cycles: "Biketoberfest is a one-of-a-kind event where visitors from the DC Metro area can check out over 30 vendors and bicycle advocacy organizations focused on introducing you to the great sport of bicycling! Experienced riders and newbies alike will enjoy this experience." Like The Bike Lane's Demo Days scheduled for Thurs. Oct 23, there will be several new bikes for cyclists to try out.
