Reston Tour de Lights

Here's a report from FABB's Kelley Westenhoff, a member Reston Pedestrian and Bicycling Advisory Committee, on the Tour de Lights:
Tour de Lights Group
at Town Center Fountain Square
This evening, 25 people turned out for the first EVER Reston Tour De Lights, organized by Dan Kole of the RA PBAC. The tour went from Lake Anne Plaza over to Reston Town Center, where we stopped for a photo opp at the big tree. From there we hopped on the W&OD, then worked our way back up via Old Reston Ave to head north. Working our way through neighborhoods around North Point, our ride's high point was the "St. Jude's house".

Of the riders, 5 were kids. Two of those were in a trailer, 2 on a tagalong (poor Steve Gurney). One rode independently the whole way without complaining. (My neighbor's 7 year old).

The weather undoubtedly helped the outcome. We had one rider, Gwen, who came from Falls Church, and (FABB volunteer) Jenifer Madden came from Vienna. Three sisters joined us -- two of them having traveled from North Dakota for the holidays! They all hauled out dusty bikes, pumped up the tires, and had a great time.
