Bike to Market

We've been writing articles for the Reston Patch about various bicycling topics. The latest is entitled Why Not Bike to the Farmers Market? We live about 5 miles from the Reston Farmers Market at Lake Anne. Most people who visit the market live nearby, and yet most of them drive. Car parking is always a problem and it's so much easier to get there by bike. Most of what we buy can fit into panniers or a backpack. Bike parking isn't the greatest but we're hoping for better accommodations in the future.

Maybe we should hold a Bike to Market Day.

Great idea - one more way to open minds about using a bike for errands - though that one if particularly enjoyable.
I bike across the Beltway to the Old Town (Alexandria) Farmers Market all the time. I don't bother with parking...I just walk my bike along through the market.
