Weekend event at REI

FABB plans to attend the Subaru Frontcountry Tour sponsored by the Fairfax Corner REI store this Saturday, September 26 from 10-4 pm. The event will be held at the plaza near the store. Frontcountry is an initiative of Leave No Trace which grew out of a concern for proper stewardship of our outdoor resources. The Frontcountry concept recognizes that most people recreate near home on local parks such as the W&OD Trail, and the Leave No Trace concept should apply there as well.

The primary goal of FABB is to help create a bicycle-friendly Fairfax so that people can use their bicycles for transportation and recreation. Why drive for miles in congested traffic to "get away", when you can enjoy the many local attractions on a bike while getting some exercise? We'll be handing out county bike maps and information brochures.

I "got away" to Reston on my bike today. Beautiful ride through the woods. Perfect weather. Lunch by Lake Anna. And who was sitting at the adjacent table but the visionary man who made my day possible, Robert E. Simon.
