Help FABB Kick Into Gear!
FABB is thrilled to announce we received our 501(c)(3) status in March. We are now officially an independent non-profit working to improve bicycling in Fairfax County. FABB has some specific plans for making bicycling better in 2016, and we need your help to put them into action. Here are two ways you can help:
Make a Donation – FABB is developing an advocacy leadership workshop that will train and empower a community of advocates and grow our movement for a bike-friendly Fairfax. We also plan to update our website to help provide a fresh public interface for local bike news and reach new supporters. Your donation here will help make these plans a reality.
Volunteer -- As an all-volunteer organization, FABB relies on supporters like you to donate their time to improve bicycling in our neighborhoods and around the County. Volunteers can provide outreach at local events, advocate for better bicycling, and provide administrative support and guidance. Visit our volunteer webpage to learn about specific opportunities and get in touch with us. We’ll find the right fit for you.
FABB has already been off and running in 2016:
- Holding district meetings in Mount Vernon and Mason Districts meeting new cyclists and learning about the most pressing local needs.
- Advocating for new bike lanes in the Mason and Braddock Districts as part of VDOT’s summer repaving program.
- Leading the charge for a parallel trail along I-66 outside the Beltway.
- Utilizing short videos like the recently released bike parking video to advance a bike-friendly Fairfax.
