Ride With Supervisor Storck on December 31

Mt Vernon Supervisor Dan Storck began his term on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in January 2016. Before then he was a member of the Fairfax Co School Board. He has been a supporter of FABB's efforts to promote biking and walking to school. We were excited to learn that Supervisor Storck is leading a bike tour of the Mt Vernon District on New Years Eve day, the inaugural Tour de Mount Vernon. The ride starts at 9:30 a.m. leaving from Belle Haven Park. You can register on eventbrite.

This is a great opportunity to meet Supervisor Storck, discuss cycling conditions in the Mt Vernon District, and likely learn some local history. Supervisor Storck is known for his distinctive beard that he grew for his role as Abe Lincoln in the Alexandria parade many years ago. He continues to play the role on occasion. Read Supervisor Storck's First Person Singular account in the Washington Post.

From the December Mt Vernon Advisor:
On Saturday, December 31 at 9:30 am join us for the last ride of the old year as we hold our inaugural Tour de Mount Vernon bike ride! This informal bike ride is open to all who want to join us and begins at Belle Haven Park on the George Washington Parkway (GWP). The 25 mile one-way or 50 mile round-trip ride follows the GWP trail to Mount Vernon Estate and continues on ultimately ending at the Workhouse Arts Center. Click here for more details and to sign-up. We look forward to seeing you on December 31st for our inaugural ride through the historic Mount Vernon district.
