Help us make Fairfax more bike friendly

Make Your Year-End Donation to Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling!

logo_color_sm 3As you make your end-of-year charitable donations, we hope you will consider donating to FABB. FABB is an all-volunteer group that promotes bicycling as a viable transportation option in Fairfax County. FABB volunteers work with the community to make bicycling a safe, cost-effective, and easy way to get around Fairfax. We accomplish our work on a small budget so every dollar donated ensures that we can continue our efforts. In 2013, we need funding for maintaining our website, purchasing bicycle safety equipment, attending bike and transportation conferences, and expanding our bike counting effort. Please help us with a year-end tax-deductible donation today.

This year we have the opportunity to double the impact of your gift. From now through December 31, a very generous anonymous donor has agreed to match dollar for dollar the first $1,000 in donations.

Among our main goals for 2013:
  • Pass and implement the Countywide Bicycle Master Plan
  • Hire a Safe Routes to School coordinator for Fairfax County
  • Expand our bike counting effort
  • Conduct bicycle safety campaigns
  • Ensure that biking facilities are in place for the opening of the Silver Line
We were very productive in 2012. Some of what we accomplished in Fairfax County this year:
  • Spearheaded inaugural Fairfax Bike SummitSummitCollage3-asm 2
  • Played key role in developing the Countywide Bicycle Master Plan
  • Changed school policy so that parents (not faculty) decide whether children can walk and bike to school
  • Enhanced school policy to include bicycle safety education programs
  • Installed three bike racks in the Town of Vienna
  • Formed Tysons Bike Group
  • Assessed condition of Fairfax County Parkway Trail
  • Advocated for first ever sharrows in Fairfax County
  • Conducted bike counts at multiple locations
  • Held first FABB Social Rides and FABB Happy Hour
  • Added bike tourism information to Visit Fairfax
With our dedicated team of passionate volunteers, every dollar that FABB receives goes a very long way. Please donate to FABB online or send a check for "FABB" to FABB, P.O. Box 3752, Reston, VA 20195.
Thank you for your support and contribution to a better Fairfax.
