Fairfax County announced today the selection of Adam Lind as the new Bicycle Program Manager, commonly referred to as the bike coordinator. Adam has been serving as the acting bike coordinator since the position became vacant with the retirement of Charlie Strunk in January of this year. Congratulations Adam! You can congratulate Adam yourself at tonight's FABB meeting or on the FABB Social Ride to Tysons on Sunday.

Adam has done a great job as acting coordinator, working with VDOT on the creation of over 34 miles of new bike lanes as part of this summer's repaving program. The work included conducting numerous meetings around the county to seek comments on individual projects. He is developing a plan to implement bike sharing in Reston. Most recently he has worked with VDOT on the design of the I-66 parallel trail and other bike facilities related to the project.

Adam came to Fairfax County in February 2014 as a Bicycle Planner. From the county news release:
“Looking to the future, the Bicycle Master Plan will guide the development of bike lanes and trails that will help connect neighborhoods to the places residents want to go,” said Lind. “Our goal is to create a connected and safe bicycle network that will allow people to rethink their commute. I look forward to working with the community to make this a reality.

Most recently, Lind has worked on coordinating the implementation of bike lanes throughout the county as part of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) repaving program and the establishment of a bike trail along the I-66 corridor outside the Capital Beltway (I-495) as part of the Express Lanes project. One of his early tasks in his new position will be to coordinate an implementation plan for priority projects in the Bicycle Master Plan.

Prior to joining FCDOT, Lind completed internships with the Town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina; City of Blacksburg, Virginia; and Montgomery County, Virginia. He holds a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from Virginia Tech and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
