Faces of Fairfax - Kevin
Kevin from Reston showed his support for Bike to Work Day by stopping by the Wiehle-Reston East Metro pit stop and took some time to talk to FABB.
Kevin described biking as an “indispensable part of my lifestyle.” In addition to commuting by bike, Kevin rides throughout northern Virginia, saying that he enjoys the freedom he gets from biking and that he likes that his biking is good for the environment. Like many area bicyclists, Kevin would like to see Fairfax County develop better road sharing infrastructure.
FABB notes that Kevin rides to work in regular clothes and commutes for only a short distance. He is a great demonstration of a couple of points FABB regularly tries to make as its encourages people to bike: 1) you don’t need special gear to use your bike for short trips and 2) saying “I live too close to work to ride” is a really poor excuse not to use your bike.
