Faces of Fairfax: Bob Sachs

Bob Sachs
FABB volunteers at the BTWD 2018 pit stop in Mount Vernon enjoyed talked to local rider Bob Sachs. It was hard not to like talking to someone who says he just loves to ride bikes and rides everywhere he can. Trying to pin him down on what he most likes about bicycling on that soggy Bike to Work Day, our volunteers had to laugh when he first said “Rain!” Bob then added that riding helped to clear his occasionally befuddled head. Bob would like to see more bike lanes and sharrows in the county to make it easier and safer to ride. He also supports better driver education to make sure everyone is aware of the rules of the road regarding bicyclists. 

FABB actively advocates for Fairfax County and the Virginia Department of Transportation to continue adding bike lanes, sharrows, and even shoulders and wide curb lanes to routes in and around the Mt. Vernon area. We also encourage people who ride bikes or love someone who does to make their voices heard on improving bicycling infrastructure and safety at public hearings. FABB publicizes such meetings on our social media, so please be sure to follow FABB, share our posts, and give us a like.
