Help us make bicycling better in Fairfax

As you make your end of year charitable donations, I hope you will consider donating to FABB. FABB is a volunteer organization that advocates for bicyclist safety, rights, and facilities. We need funds to print materials like our award-winning bicycle accommodations guide, host our website with up-to-date information on bicycling in Fairfax, and participate in key meetings. Can you help us with a year-end tax deductible donation today?

Among our main goals for 2012:

  • Begin implementing the Tysons Bicycle Master Plan
  • Help complete the Countywide Bicycle Master Plan
  • Encourage more kids to bike to school (Safe Routes to School)
  • Form a bicycle advisory committee for the Northern Virginia VDOT District office
We had a very productive 2011. Some of what we accomplished in Fairfax this year:
  • Planning for the future with the Tysons and Countywide Bicycle Master Plans
  • Launch of International Bike and Walk to School Day in twenty six local schools
  • Bike commuting and safety education including our bike light giveaway program
  • Community outreach including bike rodeos and Bike to Work Day
  • Speaking to many boards, local commissions, and elected officials
  • Working with transportation staff on the safe design of our roads
Our work was recognized this year with a national award for innovative advocacy from the Alliance for Biking & Walking. We have achieved all of this on a tiny budget. With our dedicated team of passionate volunteers, every dollar that FABB receives goes a very long way. We could be even more effective if we had a few more dollars to help us do this critical on-going work. Please donate to FABB either online or send a check for WABA/FABB” to FABB, P.O. Box 3752, Reston, VA 20195.
