Faces of Fairfax - Gary McMullin
Gary McMullin regularly commutes from his home in Fairfax to the Burke Centre Virginia Railway Express station. When he spoke to FABB on Bike to Work Day Gary said he rides for the exercise and the pure enjoyment of biking. Gary told FABB that the thing he likes most about riding is how relaxing it is. He added, however, that more bike paths lanes would make riding safer and even more relaxing.
FABB agrees—and studies
show—that better bike infrastructure helps overcome safety concerns that discourage many people who would like to ride bikes. European cities that provide significant infrastructure for the bicycling transportation alternative have demonstrated that when cycling feels safe, especially for children and the elderly, more people ride. And, these European cities have shown that as the roads become safer for cyclists, there is less danger for motorists and pedestrians.
