Rails-to-Trails Featured at FABB February Meeting

Please plan on joining us for regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Patrick Henry Library, 101 Maple Ave E, Vienna, near the W&OD Trail. 
Brandi Horton of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) will be giving a talk on “Making Connections: Trails at the Heart of Healthy, Thriving Communities.” The presentation will highlight how new opportunities can be created for biking and trails as transportation habits change and technologies like autonomous vehicles become mainstream. Join us to explore how we can create the change we want and put trails at the heart of healthy, thriving communities in Fairfax County.

If you are not familiar with RTC, you should know that this non-profit serves as the national voice for more than 160,000 members and supporters, 31,000 miles of rail-trails and multi-use trails, and more than 8,000 miles of potential trails waiting to be built, with a goal of creating more walkable, bikeable communities in America. 

With Washington finally turning its attention to the country's infrastructure needs, bicycle advocates like RTC and FABB have a lot of work ahead of them to make sure that bicycling options are included in the developing plans.  Please join us to learn more about potential opportunities.
