Join a 35-mile scenic bicycle ride to visit the hidden cultural and environmental treasures in the Mount Vernon District on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017.

The second annual Tour de Mount Vernon is sponsored by Mount District Supervisor Dan Storck in partnership with county agencies.

Rain or shine, the ride begins at 8:30 a.m., and it starts and ends at the building 11 at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.

The route will be mainly on paved trails, and in a few areas, it will be on the road, with safety monitors along the route. This will be a fun ride with some challenging sections. Riders will collect “poker cards” at specific locations that will qualify them for prize drawings at the end.
