Reston Bike to Work Day

We are finally getting around to posting info about Bike to Work Day. Once again a record number of cyclists, more than 8,000, signed up to participate in the DC area. At least three Fairfax County Board of Supervisors rode to events around the county: Lee District Supervisor McKay, Springfield District Supervisor Herrity and Hunter Mill District Supervisor Hudgins.

FABB helped organize the Reston event that attracted a record 411 cyclists this year. Supervisor Hudgins presented the U.S. Geological Survey with a commemorative plaque for having the most Reston Bike to Work Day participants every year since 2002. Matt Larsen, Associate Director for Water, and Kerie Hitt, hydrologist, bike commuter, and FABB secretary received the award on behalf of the USGS.

The Reston office of SoftwareAG located near the W&OD Trail received the Bike-Friendly Business award for promoting bike commuting by providing a changing facility, showers, lockers, and a special indoor bike room for storing bicycles.

Professional photographer Peter Klosky of the Reston Bike Club took some great photos of the event.

Reston Bike to Work Day is organized by the Reston Town Center Association, Reston Association, Reston Bike Club, Friends of the W&OD Trail, and Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling with the help of many local sponsors including Great Harvest Bread Co., Whole Foods Market, A-1 Cycling, Starbucks Coffee, Mon Ami Gabi, VDOT, and The Bike Lane.
