New bike racks in McLean

Thanks to the efforts of FABB member Dennis Frew and support from the McLean Chamber of Commerce and Dranesville District Supervisor Foust, new bike racks are popping up around downtown McLean. Several of us from FABB attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday to celebrate the installation of racks near Greenberry's Coffee. Greenberry's hosted the event which was attended by Supervisor Foust, Chamber of Commerce members, county staff, Virginia Delegates Comstock and Keam, WABA suburban outreach staff, and FABB. Virginia Senator Favola stopped by briefly after the event.

McLean is leading the way for better bicycling in Fairfax. Wayfinding signs were installed this summer throughout McLean and now they have a bike parking initiative. Why not support their efforts by riding to McLean or stopping by Greenberry's and saying thanks? You could also take the McLean neighborhood tour that Dennis has led in the past.
