The Return of Faces of Fairfax - Stacey Hardy

Last year FABB presented a series of stories that sought to personalize Fairfax County’s bicyclists for the larger public. During this year’s Bike to Work Day in May, FABB members again took pictures of area bikers and asked them about themselves and their biking habits. 

Stacey Hardy likes to ride to work and around her neighborhood on weekends. She first participated in Bike To Work Day in 2015 and since then rides to work a few times a week from Fairfax City to the Fair Oaks area. 

She likes to ride because it gets her outside and is a welcome physical challenge in a world where it's easy to be sedentary. She also likes the fact that biking to work accomplishes the multiple functions of getting to work, getting outside, and getting exercise at the same time.

Stacey would like to see more dedicated bicycling facilities that treat bicycling as a valid way to get around. She thinks that just sharing recreational trails and sidewalks can endanger pedestrians.

As we wrote last year, FABB encourages its members and other readers to share these profiles in social media as a reminder to our fellow citizens that, when it comes to our area’s bike commuters, recreational riders, and other bicyclists, we represent a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and interests. We are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, and sons and daughters. And, when we ride with safety in mind and within the law, we deserve reciprocal care and consideration from others on the roads and trails.
