The Fairfax Bike Summit will be held in just over a week and registration is filling fast. Free online registration is available. If  you want to attend you should register now. There may not be any walk-on registrations if we reach our goal of 200 attendees, so it's best to sign up now.

We will also be giving two special awards of appreciation. There will be representatives from several area bike shops with samples of transportation bikes and gear. Reps from several bike organizations will also be present.

At the end of the summit, at 2pm, there will be a guided bike tour of the GMU campus highlighting the many new bike facilities installed over the past couple of years. Loaner bikes will be available from the GMU bike share program and from The Bike Lane.

If  you are attending the summit, please consider coming by bike. There will be free indoor bike valet parking provided thanks to GMU volunteers and bike racks from bikes@vienna. If you like more information or would like to volunteer, contact Bruce Wright,
