Visit Fairfax - New bike infoVisit Fairfax, a group that promotes tourism in Fairfax County, to request that information about bicycling be included in their outreach materials. The Visit Fairfax website, www.fxva.com, is used by visitors to the county to find out about upcoming events and attractions. Visitors can also obtain information about lodging, restaurants, and shops.
Now biking information is included on the site on the Biking and Hiking page. There is a link to the county bicycle route map, places to rent bikes, and a link to the FABB website that contains a cornucopia of bicycle information on the Cyclist Resources page. Thanks Visit Fairfax!
Let's hope that more visitors to the county will consider using a bicycle to get around. I also hope that one day we'll have a bicycle sharing system in our urban centers.
We've also asked that bicycling information be included in the next edition of the Official Visitors Guide to Fairfax County.
