Thanks for visiting FABB. We are an all-volunteer group that needs your help to make Fairfax County and Northern Virginia a better place to bike. What can you do?
FABB is involved with several fund raising events throughout the year. With your help we can raise funds to be a more effective advocacy organization. Here are current volunteer opportunities:
- Friday, May 20 - Bike to Work Day: Help FABB spread the word about our ongoing advocacy campaigns, help cyclists find the best bike routes to work, shop, etc. Sign up on Volunteer Spot.
- Saturday, May 21 - Tour de Fat: The best bike party in the DC Metro area. FABB needs help checking IDs at Tour de Fat held at Yards Park next to Nats Stadium. Sign up for morning or afternoon shifts. Enter "FABB" as the password and you will see "ID & Wristbands" and you can select morning (10am-1:30pm) or afternoon (1-5pm) shifts.
- District Advocates - Speak up for better bicycling at local government and land use meetings and hearings in your county district. Not sure which district you live in? See the county Supervisor District Map. Contact FABB and we'll follow up with more information about how you can help.
- Bicycling Outreach - Help FABB reach out to the community at local events and share how we're working to improve bicycling around the county.
