Faces of Fairfax - Greg Raelson

Greg Raelson, a US Navy F/A-18 pilot and competitive endurance athlete, spoke to FABB during the Richmond to DC bike event in late July.  When not riding his bike for enjoyment, training, or competition, Greg uses his bike to commute to work at the Navy Yard in DC from his home in Fairfax.  

Greg told us that the things he likes most about riding is being outside, sharing in healthy activities with other people, and, fighter pilot and athlete that he is, pushing his limits. To complement his passions, he is establishing his own business, Mile Marker Performance, to help others start or continue to be involved in endurance sports. 

Greg spends a lot of time on his bike on Fairfax roads and his list of changes to make it easier and safer to ride in the county matches most of FABB’s goals. In particular, he would like to see more trails and bicycle-friendly roads with more bike lanes that are consistently maintained and linked.  Greg also would like to see better enforcement of traffic laws that protect bikers, other motorists, and pedestrians, especially those against distracted driving, which he observed is a growing problem.
