May is National Bike to Work Month, and hundreds of bicycling commuters from the Washington metropolitan region will be out pedaling in celebration of this clean, inexpensive, and healthful means of transportation.  Be part of the solution to Northern Virginia’s traffic congestion, and join hundreds of bicycle commuters to celebrate Bike to Work Day, this Friday, May 20th, at the Reston Town Center Pavilion.  This stop is conveniently located near the W&OD Trail, Reston Transit Station, and new Sunset Hills Park and ride.

Bicyclists Meet in the Pavilion for refreshments, mingling, and prizes.

The event stretches from 6:30-9:00am, and features free snacks and drinks, prize raffles, bicycle tune-ups, and a chance to meet fellow riders.  Pre-registered riders also get a t-shirt.  Hunter Mill Supervisor Cathy Hudgins will greet riders at 8 am, and Bruce Wright of Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling will be on hand to bring people up to date on the latest bicycling improvements in the county.  The locker rooms and showers at the Reston YMCA will be open to participants on the morning of the event.

The Reston Town Center pavilion will be one of several pit stops for the annual “Bike to Work Day” sponsored by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, the Washington Area Bicyclists Association (WABA), and Fairfax County.
