County bike map mentioned in Images of 2008

County Map Puts Cycling on a Safer Path is the title of one of the Images of 2008 in Today's Fairfax Extra section of the Washington Post. The photo shows two bike commuters on the W&OD Trail, and the caption mentions the new bike map: "Fairfax County leaders and cycling advocates released a bicycling map of the county May 16, capping more than a year of work. The map serves as the first step in developing safe and easy routes in a county with a reputation of being a dangerous place to bike."

The caption gets it right—the map was an achievement of 2008 that is also just a first step. Thanks to everyone who helped put the map together, and with everyone's help in 2009 we can work together to make Fairfax County a better place to bike.

As we mentioned earlier, a new, revised edition of the map is now available at local bike stores and through Fairfax County. An electronic copy of the earlier version is available on the County Bike Pages. The new one should be posted soon.
