Tell the Park Authority you want better bike access to parks

The Fairfax County Park Authority is updating their Needs Assessment. The effort is called Parks Count! In the 2004 Needs Assessment report there is no discussion of bike access to parks. The only mention of bikes is on unpaved bike trails.

This is a great opportunity to let the Park Authority know the importance of good bicycle access to the parks and the need for bike parking.

After collecting ideas and initial input, the Park Authority will "design and send a survey to almost 15,000 randomly selected Fairfax County households in early 2015."

One way to participate is to use a web-based application for getting citizen feedback. You can comment and vote on proposed ideas or propose your own ideas. The application requires entering an email address and creating a password. Please consider voting for this idea that was recently added:
Better bicycle access to parks: Most of us live within a short distance of nearby parks, and yet accessing our parks by bike is often not easy. We need safe, direct bike access into the parks, and good bike parking when we get there.
The topic with the most votes, 8, is Horseback Riding on more trails. The above idea has 1 vote.
