A bit about our hosts: Reston, VA, the only designated Bicycle Friendly Community in Fairfax County, is home to over 100 miles of paved and natural trails. Bisected by the W&OD Trail, the Gerry Connolly Cross Country Trail, the Fairfax County Parkway Trails, and providing a gateway to mountain biking trails at Lake Fairfax, Reston offers something for every kind of cyclist. Local biking organizations can help you plan a ride, a day trip, or even an adventure, and fill you in on what's going on in local advocacy to enhance the roads and trails in our area.
Volunteer? Can you lend a hand? We are looking for a volunteer or two to help by prepping the gathering location and cleaning up. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 532-2751, if you are interested.
