Bike to Work Day

We hope a lot of you enjoyed your bike commute to work today. Although the rain did not hold off at least it was not too cold. The Bike Lane helped out at The Reston Town Center, AOL, and Springfield pit stops. We saw a lot of our customers out there and we hope that many people are making bike commuting a part of their lifestyle. Fairfax County is trying to help. The Washington Post wrote a great article about the new Fairfax County Map! Stop in to check out the new map

Cycling across Tysons Corner has been described as more dangerous than traveling from the Baghdad airport to the Green Zone. The same story unwinds across Fairfax County: Along Braddock Road, Lee Highway, Huntsman Boulevard and many other thoroughfares, cyclists put their lives in jeopardy trying to share the road with fast-moving traffic.

Reston is coming along…finally!

Well our wish to have Reston open in May is not going to happen…..delays,delays, delays…. but what would a contruction project be without delays?  So, we are now hoping for late June.  And the way it is going (cross your fingers) it may just happen!   If you happen to be looking for where we are going to be in the Reston Town Center, just look for the red scaffolding.  Yep, that will be there for a while as they continue to add on top of the building we are in…..but no worries, at least it will be easy to locate us. 

Sivtsov Wins Yellow in the Peach State!

 

From BreakAway, the official Newsletter of the Tour de Georgia:
After seven days and 600 miles of racing that saw the peloton traverse across the state of Georgia from the shores of Tybee Island, to the Blue Ridge Mountains, down to the streets of Atlanta, up and comer Kanstantin Sivtsov (BLR) of Team High Road claimed the overall title at the 2008 Tour de Georgia presented by AT&T. Joining him on the podium were second place finisher and GE Energy Best Young Rider, Trent Lowe (AUS) of Slipstream-Chipotle presented by H30, followed closely by American Levi Leipheimer of Team Astana. A mere 14 seconds separated first place from third in the overall individual GC.
