Introducing Faces of Fairfax

Months ago, FABB was inspired by the efforts of Brandon Stanton and his Humans of New York  photographs and blog and by BikePittsburgh’s “Drive With Care” public service campaign to try to personalize Fairfax County’s bicyclists for the larger public. During last May’s Bike to Work Day, FABB members took pictures of numerous bikers and asked them about themselves and their biking habits. Starting today and over the next few months, we will be posting what we modestly call “Faces of Fairfax” to show the breadth, depth, and humanity of cyclists here in northern Virginia.

We encourage FABB members and other readers to share these profiles in social media as a reminder to our fellow citizens that, when it comes to our area’s bike commuters, recreational riders, and other bicyclists, we represent a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and interests. We are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, and sons and daughters. And, when we ride with safety in mind and within the law, we deserve reciprocal care and consideration from others on the road and trails.

Special thanks to FABB interviewers/photographers Alan Young, Bruce Wright, Douglas Stewart, Sonya Breehy, and Stiven Foster.
