This guide was prepared by Fionnuala Quinn and Bruce Wright of Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling (FABB). We would like to thank the many people who were very generous with their time and assistance as we worked on the project: Chanda Causer of the Alliance for Biking & Walking; Kerie Hitt of Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling; Eric Gilliland of National Association of City Transportation Officials; Eve DeCoursey of Washington Area Bicyclist Association; Jakob Helmboldt of Vanasse Hangen Brustlin; David Patton of Bike Arlington; Dean "Al" Covey, Randy Dittberner, Cindy Engelhart, Doug Miller, Zamir Mirza, Joan Morris, Sid Siddiqui, and Jan Vaughan of Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT); Jeffrey Hermann and Charlie Strunk of Fairfax County Department of Transportation; Champe Burnley and Bruce Drees of Virginia Bicycling Federation; Allen Turnbull, a citizen advocate; and Pat Turner and Maria Nicklin of BikeLoudoun. A special thanks to Linda Rapp for all of her patient design and editorial assistance.

The project was possible due to an Advocacy Advance Grant received from the Alliance for Biking & Walking , which was funded through the support of SRAM, Planet Bike, Bikes Belong Coalition and 42 Below. We are very appreciative of the support provided by this generous group of sponsors. Thank you for your encouragement of local bicycling advocacy efforts.
