FABB sponsors ride to Udvar-Hazy Center on May 5

The Space Shuttle Discovery has arrived!  Why drive to the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center and pay $15 to park when you can ride and park your bike for free?  FABB is hosting a social ride to give WABA members a chance to share ideas about transportation cycling while enjoying a leisurely ride through Oak Hill neighborhoods.  We will ride 6 miles to the museum, lock up our bikes and spend 1 hour enjoying the museum.  Afterwards we’ll ride 6 miles back to Reston under a stream valley viaduct. WABA Members only (due to insurance reasons).  Helmets are required.  We are keeping our first ride small so register early.

Date:  5/5/2012 at 9 am

Rain Date: 5/6/2012 at 9 am **Rain date will be announced by 7am on ride day. Look for an email and in our events page.
  • Riders will depart at 9am from the Reston South Park & Ride.   The ride is a combination of neighborhood streets (on-road), multi-use trails and a short section of 4-lane road near the Museum.  We will cross a stream (1-2 inches over concrete) at a fair weather crossing.
  • The ride is about 12 miles round trip
  • We will stay at the museum for an hour before heading back to Reston.  There are U-racks to lock your bike.  Admission is free.
  • This is a no-drop social ride at a 10-12 mph pace... no lycra or fast road bikes needed.
  • The ride is for adult WABA Members.  Children 14-18 may participate if they are accompanied by an adult WABA member.
  • FABB will provide Ride Marshalls for the ride
