FABB is proud to be a sponsor of the fourth annual Tour de Mount Vernon and wants to encourage everyone to join Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck for this community bike ride on Saturday, October 19, 2019.
This fun ride winds through the south western portion of the Mount Vernon District and along a scenic route through Fort Belvoir. In addition to this military base, the Tour de Mount Vernon will allow riders to visit the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Occoquan Regional Park, Gunston Hall, and Pohick Bay Regional Park. The route is challenging in a few sections and is intended for experience riders. Children 15 and older welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. Ride monitors and Fairfax County Police will be on hand to help with directions and keep everyone safe.
The day begins at the Workhouse Arts Center at 9518 Workhouse Road in Lorton between 7:45–8:30 am when riders pick up their packets with map, socks, and numbers. The ride will start at 8:30 am, and when the ride is complete there will be food, fun, and prizes available at the Workhouse Arts Center between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.
You can register for the ride here. The fee is $25.00 per rider, and registration includes a pair of Tour de Mount Vernon Socks and a $5 donation for FABB. Spokes, Etc. will provide full SAG support for riders. The event is rain or shine with no refunds and no transfers of a registration to other riders. Helmets are required for the ride and participants will be required to sign a liability waiver on the day of the ride.
