Maps of the two routes for this year’s Tour de Mount Vernon have been released by Supervisor Dan Storck’s office.
The annual bike ride, which is now in its fourth year, will begin at 8:30 a.m. on October 19 at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton. Participants can take part in either a 20-mile ride (see on Map My Ride) or a 35-mile ride (see on Map My Ride) that will take people through western side of the Mount Vernon District as well as down the Mason Neck peninsula. The longer ride includes a section on Fort Belvoir.
You can still register for the Tour de Mount Vernon here. There is a $25 fee per rider, which includes Tour de Mount Vernon socks and a $5 donation to the Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling. Spokes, Etc. will be on hand to provide SAG support to riders, and ride monitors and the Fairfax Police will also be on the routes.
