Fairfax Bike Summit on October 27FABB, GMU, and Fairfax County have been meeting over the past month to plan the Fairfax Bike Summit to be held on October 27. It will be an opportunity for Fairfax cyclists to network and learn how to make Fairfax a better place to bike. We're still working on the details of the agenda but we wanted to get the word out as soon as possible so people can save the date; it should be a great event:
Fairfax Bike Summit: Pedaling our way to a healthier and happier communityPlease join us for the inaugural Fairfax Bike Summit on Saturday, October 27 at George Mason University (GMU) from 9AM - 2PM. Register here for FREE (attendance is limited to 200 people – so act fast!)
About the Fairfax Bike Summit: This summit will bring together bicyclists, bicycle organizations, bike shops, and transportation professionals to discuss:
- Turning Fairfax into an even better place to live by making bicycling a major part of the transportation system
- Details about the recently-completed bicycle master plan draft that serves as our roadmap for making our streets safer for bicyclists (adding bike lanes, cycle tracks, signed bicycle routes, and connecting trails and streets that lead to major destinations)
- How other communities are being transformed from auto-centric places to more people-oriented places
- Bicycling as an alternative transportation option that provides opportunities to grow Fairfax County into a more competitive, liveable, connected, and vibrant community
The summit will be held at The HUB at GMU in the Front-Middle Ballroom, 4400 University Dr., Fairfax, VA 22030. Display space is available for bicycle businesses and organizations. For further information, please visit fabb-bikes.org or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
