Patch article on Fairfax Bike Summit

Alan Young of FABB is a writer for the Patch. See his most recent article on the Fairfax Bike Summit.

The word is spreading fast about the Summit. WABA sent out a notice to Northern Virginia cyclists, and Potomac Pedalers is including a blurb about the summit on the cover of the October edition of their newsletter, Pedal Patter, available in most local bike shops.

Over 100 people have signed up for the Summit. Registration is free on Eventbrite and is limited to the first 200 people. Here's more info:

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

You'll also get to hear from nationally-known speakers including Andy Clarke of the League of American Bicyclists, Chris Eatough of BikeArlington, and Stewart Schwartz of the Coalition for Smarter Growth. See the latest in transportation bikes and gear on display from local bike shops. Join GMU staff for a bike tour of campus bike facilities after the summit. A limited number of bicycles will be provided by The Bike Lane.

The summit will be held at The HUB at GMU in the Front-Middle Ballroom, 10423 Rivanna River Way, Fairfax, VA 22030. Display space is available for bicycle businesses and organizations. For further information, please visit or contact us at
