Faces of Fairfax: Maria Bissex

Maria Bissex
During the soggy Bike to Work Day at the McLean Pit Stop, FABB had the pleasure of talking to enthusiastic rider and Orioles fan, Maria Bissex. A McLean resident, Maria told us that she bikes for exercise and to be out in nature. She also likes to do charity rides when she can. Her favorite rides are on the many trails in the county, and she especially loves the W&OD trail. In response to our question about what she likes most about bicycling, Maria told us that biking clears her mind and makes her feel energized. As far as making bicycling better in Fairfax County goes, Maria would like to see more connected trails and more bike lines. 

More bike lanes and important connections are coming to the Mclean and Tysons areas. Next week, on Thursday, June 14, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the George C. Marshall High School, 7731 Leesburg Pike, in Falls Church, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a public hearing on a project to connect Rt. 123 and Tysons Corner Center. The plans include a 10-foot shared-use path along Old Meadow Road from the McLean Metro Station leading to a pedestrian/bicycle bridge over I-495 to connect to Tysons One place and Fashion Boulevard. FABB hopes local residents will attend the meeting and show their support for these projects.
