Trek Womens Demo is coming to town Oct 11

Join The Bike Lane at Wakefield Park on October 11 from 3-8 pm for our Trek Women’s Bike Demo.  Come out and demo the best in Trek women’s mountain and road bikes. Trek will have the demos available from 3 pm-8 pm. Also, join us for a women’s road ride at 4 pm and a women’s mountain bike ride at 6:30 pm. Bring your bike for the rides or ride a demo (you must RSVP to reserve a demo). If you plan to attend the women’s mountain bike ride please bring lights (it will be dark), or email Anne to demo lights. The road ride will be a casual 10 miles and the mountain bike ride will be a casual night ride, great for first time night riders. Don’t forget your helmet and an ID if you want to demo a bike. PLEASE RSVP to Anne at info@thebikelane.com if you would like to demo a bike for the organized mountain or road rides. If you just want to demo a bike and not go on the ride all you have to do is show up.

About the Fairfax Bike Summit: This summit will bring together bicyclists, bicycle  organizations, bike shops, and transportation professionals to discuss:
Turning Fairfax into an even better place to live by making bicycling a major part of the transportation system
Details about the recently-completed bicycle master plan draft that serves as our roadmap for making our streets safer for bicyclists (adding bike lanes, cycle tracks, signed bicycle routes, and connecting trails and streets that lead to major destinations)
How other communities are being transformed from auto-centric places to more people-oriented places
Bicycling as an alternative transportation option that provides opportunities to grow Fairfax County into a more competitive, liveable, connected, and vibrant community

You’ll also get to hear from nationally-known speakers including Andy Clarke, president of the League of American Bicyclists, Chris Eatough of BikeArlington, and Stewart Schwartz of the Coalition for Smarter Growth. See the latest in transportation bikes and gear on display from local bike shops. Join GMU staff for a bike tour of campus bike facilities after the summit. A limited number of bicycles will be provided by The Bike Lane.
