Board of Supervisors Presentation on Bicycle Friendly Community Award

At their meeting yesterday the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors received their Bicycle Friendly Community Bronze level award from the League of American Bicyclists. Congratulations to the Bicycle Program staff, the Board, and FABB members who worked with the county on their application. The county has made significant progress in the last couple of years, including 9.7 miles of bike lanes and 1.3 miles of buffered bike lanes as part of the 2017 repaving program.

We still have a long way to go to become a truly bicycle-friendly place. There are significant barriers to bike travel including the Beltway, I-66, I-95 and other major roads. Many businesses and retail establishments have no bike parking and what parking exists is often inadequate. See the county's Report Card prepared by the League. Let's hope we can overcome some of these problems in the near future to reach the next BFC level.
