A local advocacy group is encouraging residents to give bicycling a try during the shutdown of Silver Line and Orange line Metro Stations this summer.
The Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling will offer the help of advisers who will guide people on picking routes.
“It’s great to see so many more people out biking lately,” FABB President Sonya Breehey said. “With the closure of the Silver and Orange line stations, bike commuting can be a great option. FABB’s Bike Advisors are here to help new riders get started.”
The summer shutdown started on May 23 and affects nine stations, including Vienna, Wiehle-Reston, Tysons Corner, Greensboro and McLean.
The organization says that special clothes or a specific kind of bike is not necessary for bike commuting.
“A well-chosen bike route that avoids high-volume, high-speed roads will help to avoid conflicts with drivers and make the commute safer and more pleasant. Visibility is important, so riders should have front and rear lights for bicycling after dark,” FABB said in a press release.
Residents can enlist the help of a bike advisor online.
