Register Now for 2nd Annual Tour de Mount Vernon

FABB will be participating with Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck in a community bike ride on Saturday November 4, 2017, at 8:30 a.m., starting and ending at historic Fort Hunt Park. The ride will provide an opportunity to learn more about the hidden treasures of the Mt. Vernon District, which is the home to many cultural and environmental resources. 

The ride will have two route optionsThe first is a 36-mile out and back to Mason Neck Park. The second adds a loop past the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton for a 50-mile ride. Most of the route is on paved trails, but in a few areas it will be on the road with safety monitors along the route. This is a poker style ride with prizes awarded at the end.

After leaving Fort Hunt Park, riders will go by the historic Mount Vernon Estate, Woodlawn and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House, Gristmill Park and George Washington’s Distillery, Pohick Bay Regional Park, Mason Neck State Park, Gunston Hall, and Liberty Crest at Laurel Hill.

There is a fee of $20.00 per rider, and you must pre-register by November 1 here. If $20 is your reason for not participating in the ride, there are “scholarships” available. Please contact for more details. All riders must wear a helmet and will be required to sign a liability waiver before the ride.
