The third annual Bike Your Park Day is set for Saturday, September 28, 2019 to encourage and promote bicycling in parks and public lands. FABB is joining Adventure Cycling in encouraging Fairfax bicyclists to participate in Bike Your Park Day by registering and leading or simply joining in a ride in one of our many local parks.
Bike Your Park Day is meant to inspire people to discover nearby parks and public lands by bicycle to promote bicycling as a healthy, sustainable way to travel, exercise, and enjoy nature. In the past three years, over 35,000 people participated in more than 4,000 rides in all fifty states, the District, and over a dozen countries.
Bike Your Park Day is for people of all ages and can be a challenging century ride with friends or a mile on a bike path with a young family. It can be a mountain bike ride, a road ride, and it can include a train, bus or car to expand your mileage. Participants can start at their house and ride to the park or they can drive to the park and start their ride there. Invite your friends and family, including young kids and grandparents. Everyone can be part of Bike Your Park Day!
Participants can design their own ride of any distance and type of cycling, as long as it is to or in a park or public land. Registrants can choose to make their ride private or open it up for others to join. All registered Bike Your Park Day rides taking place around the world are included on an interactive map.
Be sure to document your #bikeyourpark day ride, inspire friends or family to join your trip, and share the adventure of exploring public lands. You can find out more about Bike Your Park Day at www.bikeyourparkday.org.
