Bike Safety Event with FCPD Set for Saturday

The Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling is hosting a bike safety event in partnership with the Fairfax County Police Department.

The socially-distanced event on bicyclist and pedestrian safety takes place on Saturday (August 29) from 9-11 a.m. next to the Washington & Old Dominion Trail in Reston.

FCPD will set up next to the bike lockets at Newton Square’s access road near the mile 17 marker, directly west of the intersection at Wiehle Avenue and Sunset Hills Road.

“This will be a great opportunity for riders to raise bike safety issues and share other concerns with our local law enforcement officers and county officials,” FABB wrote in a statement.

Masks, hand sanitizer, water, snacks, and safety literature will be available at the location.

Several county officials, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation and Northern Virginia Families for Safe Streets will also take part.

Residents are encouraged to bring their bikes.
