Bicycle Association Honors Two Fairfax County Supervisors

At the 30th annual meeting of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association on Thursday, April 3, two Fairfax County Supervisors were honored for promoting bicycling at the local and regional levels. Supervisor Cathy Hudgins (Hunter Mill District) and Supervisor Dana Kauffman (Lee District) were among eight award recipients from government, private industry and citizen organizations.

Hudgins was honored for promoting bicycling to work with the first bike-to-work rally in Fairfax County at the Reston Town Center complex and for supporting improved bicycling facilities in Fairfax County, including recommending specific signs requiring motorists to yield to the right-of-way of cyclists and pedestrians in crosswalks.

Kauffman was recognized for promoting bicycling with a bike ride in Lee District, the Tour de Lee-a family event for bicyclists of all abilities, for supporting the first on-road designated bike lanes in Fairfax County along Beulah Street and for encouraging better bicycling access to area Metro Stations.

The WABA annual meeting was highlighted with a keynote address by the Virginia Secretary of Transportation, Whittington Clement.

WABA, the nation's oldest and largest regional bicycle advocacy organization, was founded in 1972. It advocates for safe and convenient bicycle conditions on roads, trails, bridges and transit in the metropolitan Washington region. WABA also provides assistance to thousands of individual cyclists who want to use this means of transportation in their everyday lives for fitness, commuting and recreation.
