Hey GMU students & Staff!

FABB is proud to be working with George Mason University’s Transportation Office to offer bicycle classes for students and staff this fall. Details are being finalized, but we are tentatively set to hold classes on September 21 and October 20.

If you or someone you know is a GMU student who would like to learn to ride a bike, please mark the dates and watch for registration details here or on FABB’s other social media.

GMU is very supportive of biking. In early September its Parking and Transportation offices will help Mason cyclists to register their bikes and even provide first-time registrants with a free U-lock, bike lights, safety information, and more. Mason Recreation, the Office of Sustainability, and Parking and Transportation have teamed up to bring the Mason community a free bike check out program. This pilot program will start with five bikes that are available for checkout for a day at no cost. Details on both of these programs can be found here: https://transportation.gmu.edu/archive/category/bicycles/

Here’s another opportunity for Fairfax County riders to make bicycling better. The City of Fairfax, George Mason University, the Town of Vienna, and Fairfax County are working together to evaluate bringing bikeshare to these communities. This feasibility study aims to understand how a bikeshare system would be used to travel throughout these communities as well as to connect to the metropolitan region. It also will identify what type of bikeshare system will be most successful and where shared bicycles and other bikeshare infrastructure should be located.

The bikeshare study is evaluating the area that extends from the W&OD trail in Vienna south through the City of Fairfax and into George Mason University. It includes the GMU-Fairfax campus south to the Burke VRE train station and nearby neighborhoods; the central corridor through the City of Fairfax including Old Town, Northfax, Fairfax Circle, and other commercial and residential centers along Chain Bridge Road and Old Lee Highway; neighborhoods around and including the Vienna/GMU-Fairfax Metrorail Station; and in Vienna, Maple Avenue, the W&OD trail, and surrounding neighborhoods.

The study group wants your input! Study staff will be out in the community conducting "pop-up" events throughout the summer. Specific community meetings about bikeshare are being planned and will be announced soon.

You also can provide input online by logging into https://www.cabistations.com to suggest locations where bikeshare stations or priority bikeshare parking areas should be located. There also is a brief survey you can take to express your interest in bikeshare and what kind of system you would like to see by answering a few short questions. Take that survey here: http://ow.ly/m8SQ30lgZL9
