Faces of Fairfax: Debbie Skeins

Debbie Skeins
Debbie Skeins, who has participated in numerous Bike to Work Days, lives in Fairfax City and likes to ride "anywhere I can." She occasionally commutes by bike to her work in Merrifield. More often, she rides in and around Fairfax City for everyday trips and errands and then into other parts of the county for recreation. Debbie told us she rides because "it's enjoyable… and you are killing two birds with one stone. It's good for the environment and it makes you feel better." 
When asked what she likes most about riding, Debbie said, "The feeling of freedom from being on a bike." When asked what would make it easier and safer to ride, she said, "More connected trails. Some just end and you can't easily find the next one."
As part of FABB’s advocacy for the I-66 Outside the Beltway parallel trail, we have been working with Fairfax County and the Virginia Department of Transportation to ensure that such trail connections are included in this major project. As many of you know, Fairfax City has received I-66 Concessionaire funding to construct connections from the George Snyder Trail Project to the VDOT shared use path along Route 123. When the I-66 parallel trail is completed, this connection will allow George Snyder Trail users the opportunity to travel east into Washington, DC, or west to Haymarket along the I-66 corridor. Public outreach on and design of the connections are expected to start this summer, so check back with FABB's social media for announcements.
