New edition of Fairfax County Bike Map availableCopies of the newest version of the Fairfax Co Bike Map should soon be available at your local bike shop and through the County. The map was printed last week and copies arrived at most bike shops earlier this week. One of the changes is a new symbol for routes that are included on the map for connectivity, but riding conditions are poor, such as Route 1, sections of Route 29, Baron Cameron Av and others.
Another change is the inclusion of locations of local bike shops. A few minor errors were corrected as well. There is a price of $2.00 printed on the map cover, but for now the County is not charging for the map. Given the County's dire financial situation, that may change in the near future. Electronic copies of the map are available on the County bike program page (It appears that the new edition of the map is not yet available but should be soon).
