Meeting the safety, access, and mobility needs of bicyclists today, while encouraging more people to bicycle in the future…
making Fairfax County bicycle friendly and bicycle safe.
With this vision of the Fairfax County Bicycle Master Plan, Fairfax County has the framework to improve the bicycle transportation network - from on- and off-road facilities to bicycle-friendly design for roadway and transit projects. In the last 20 years, Fairfax County has seen a significant increase in bicycling on county trails, sidewalks and roads, as residents are bicycling more for both recreation and transportation. The Bike Fairfax program, part of the Fairfax County Department of Transportation, is working to improve and expand cycling facilities, accelerate the implementation of projects, provide policy guidance to the public and private sectors to promote bicycling, and enhance the overall environment for cycling.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted the County's first Bicycle Master Plan on October 28, 2014.
