Let's Ride! Fairfax Community Bike Rides

Bike Fairfax logo

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation Bicycle Program will host group bike rides to help area bicyclists learn more about the new and expanding bike network in their community. Rides will be led by FCDOT staff.

The inaugural "Let's Ride!" event was held on Wednesday, Aug. 2, before the Richmond Highway Widening Dedication Event at Pillar Church of Woodlawn. The eight (8) mile ride along Jeff Todd Way, Telegraph Road, the Fairfax County Parkway and Route 1 conclude back in the church parking lot in time for the ribbon cutting. There are paved and off-road trails for the entire route, so bicyclists of all abilities should be comfortable on the trip.
