Help Celebrate Bicycling on Bike to Work Day 2016
FABB is encouraging all members to participate in this year's Bike to Work Day (BTWD) on Friday, May 20. We also are seeking volunteers to help represent our group at Fairfax County’s 14 pit stops. This is a major opportunity for FABB to reach out to the community and celebrate bicycling as a clean, fun, and healthy way to get to work.
BTWD 2016 for the greater DC area is organized by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. It will include 83 BTWD pit stops all over the Washington metropolitan region. The Fairfax pit stop locations are: Burke VRE Station, Fair Lakes, Fairfax City Downtown, Fairfax County Government Center, Falls Church, Fort Belvoir, Herndon, McLean, Mosaic, Mt. Vernon–Collingwood Park, Reston–Wiehle-Reston East Metrorail Station, Springfield/Metro Park at Walker Lane, Tysons Corner Center, and Vienna.
Each pit stop welcomes bicyclists with refreshments and provides registered attendees with free t-shirts and chances to win bicycles and other great prizes. FABB representatives will engage riders about our group’s work and sign them up for the FABB newsletter. Whether a volunteer or commuter, make sure to register with your pit stop location by May 13 to be eligible for the free t-shirts and prize raffle.
