The inaugural Fairfax Bike Summit will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27 at George Mason University (GMU) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the recent Bicycle Master Plan meeting in Reston cyclists from the Reston Pedestrian & Bicycling Advisory Committee, FABB, and others discussed the idea. We have a great facility at GMU and some excellent spearkers lined up. Attendance is limited to 200 people. Free registration is required.
The summit will bring together bicyclists, bicycle organizations, bike shops, and transportation professionals to discuss:
- Turning Fairfax into an even better place to live by making bicycling a major part of the transportation system
- Details about the recently-completed bicycle master plan draft that serves as our roadmap for making our streets safer for bicyclists (adding bike lanes, cycle tracks, signed bicycle routes, and connecting trails and streets that lead to major destinations)
- How other communities are being transformed from auto-centric places to more people-oriented places
- Bicycling as an alternative transportation option that provides opportunities to grow Fairfax County into a more competitive, liveable, connected, and vibrant community
You'll also get to hear from nationally-known speakers including Andy Clarke of the League of American Bicyclists, Chris Eatough of BikeArlington, and Stewart Schwartz of the Coalition for Smarter Growth. See the latest in transportation bikes and gear on display from local bike shops.
The summit will be held at The HUB at GMU in the Front-Middle Ballroom, 10423 Rivanna River Way, Fairfax, VA 22030. Display space is available for bicycle businesses and organizations. For further information contact us at email@example.com.
