2009 Sam Braxton Bicycle Shop Award

Yesterday Adventure Cycling Association announced the 2009 Bicycle Travel Award Winners. Congratulations to bikes@vienna for being selected the winner of the Sam Braxton Bicycle Shop Award. John Brunow, owner of bikes@vienna, has been a supporter of FABB since the very beginning. We held our first organizational meeting in his shop and continued to meet there monthly for the next couple of years.

John is a great supporter of bicycling in Northern Virginia. He was sponsor of the Vienna Bike to Work Day pit stop for many years. bikes@vienna serves as a collection point for Bikes for the World. This is what Adventure Cycling had to say about bikes@vienna:
The Sam Braxton Bicycle Shop Award goes to Bikes@Vienna in Vienna, Virginia, recognizing their passion for sharing the local area with cyclists and the amazing services that they offer cyclists of all abilities traveling in the Washington D.C. area. As fierce proponents of full access, they offer cycling gear for all levels of rider and persons with physical disabilities. They are involved in the local community in a variety of ways, sponsoring several rides throughout the year. The owner, John Brunow, works hard to promote bicycle travel, and cycling in general, and to create positive change in his community by being an engaged, local leader.
John is an active member of the community, having served as past president of the Rotary Club of Vienna, and he is heavily involved in Viva! Vienna! each year. He's also a member of the Vienna Planning Commission.

Congratulations to John and the crew at bikes@vienna (full disclosure, I'm a former employee but am currently not working there). It's a well-deserved honor.
