Photos: Hundreds of bicycle racers compete at Reston’s Lake Fairfax Park, raising money to restore trails

Close to 600 racers gathered at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston over the weekend to raise money for the park’s trails.

The annual event, called 2022 Capital Cross Classic, took place on Sunday (Dec. 4) at the park, which is located at 1400 Lake Fairfax Drive.

The Bike Lane, a Reston-based business, took over the race more than 10 years ago, according to Todd Mader, co-owner of the business.

Money raised from the fund is specifically used to restore multi-use trails that surround the parking, Mader said.

“We won’t know the final figure until we see how much grass was ruined and how much we need to reseed, but this was a good year so at least $4,000,” Mader wrote in a statement to FFXnow.

The event is a USA Cycling cyclocross event. It will benefit the Lake Fairfax Sustainable Natural Trail System. Races were divided by time and for different ages.

The Bike Lane is a family-owned bicycle shop that has locations in Reston and Springfield.
