Faces of Fairfax - Martha Martin
Martha Martin talked to FABB on Bike to Work Day 2015 while taking a break during her regular commute from her home in Burke to her job at George Mason University. An academic advisor at GMU’s School of Business, Martha told FABB that she rides because it is healthier and more sustainable than driving. She added that, when it comes to commuting by bike “It’s sort of like being on vacation even though I am going to work.”
When asked what she would like to change to make it easier and safer to ride, Martha replied that more protected bike lanes on area roads would help.
FABB continues to support efforts to implement the Fairfax County Bicycle Master Plan
, which envisions the creation of more protected bike lanes and expanded visual cues that show cyclists how to share a lane, ride out of the door zone of parked cars, or move into buffered lanes only for bikes.
