FABB/WABA Holiday Shopping Ride -- Sunday, December 15th. 10:30am

Pete's cargo bike on FABB social ride
Holiday shopping by bicycle?  That's just crazy talkā€¦. or is it?  The folks at Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling in conjunction with Washington Area Bicyclist Association would like to invite you for a seasonal shopping ride to show you how easy it can be.  We'll start at the Vienna Train Station on the W&OD Trail and ride to Tyson's Corner for 2 hours of shopping.  This is a great place to get lunch while you're there!  From there we'll head south to the Mosaic District for another hour of gift shopping in their wonderful stores.  After that we'll load up and ride back to Vienna Station.  12.5 miles in all.

"What if I purchase more than I can carry on my bike?" you ask?  NO PROBLEM!  Pete will be riding his cargo bike with cargo trailer attached to carry anything you've purchased that won't fit on your bike.

You'll have experienced ride marshals to help guide the ride and someone at each stop that will help lock the bikes and keep an eye on them while you're shopping.

To make it more fun, Tyson's Corner Shopping Center and the Freshbikes shop in Mosaic District have chipped in VIP Shopping and Dining discounts and a shopping/gift bag for each rider.
  • When:  Sunday, December 15th at 10:30am
  • Where: Vienna Train Station along the Washington and Old Dominion Trail.  Near the intersections of Ayr Hill Ave. NE and Dominion Rd. NE in Vienna, Virginia
  • Distance:  The ride is 13 miles in all and will include some Multi-Use trail as well as public roads.  
  • What to bring:  A helmet is required for this ride! You'll need a bike, a bike lock and clothes/shoes that are suitable for riding and shopping.  Please have a mobile phone so that you can be contacted to regroup to continue the ride.  All riders will be asked to sign the ride waiver.
Many thanks to the Tyson's Corner Center and Freshbikes for making this ride possible! And thanks to Pete Beers for organizing the ride.

Please RSVP to Pete at or on the Facebook Invitation.
