Last night one of my friends informed me about the Bike to Work day with various cities sponsoring pit stops along the W&OD trail. The weather was perfect for a ride along the trail. I enjoyed seeing a few dozen of the approximately 200 registered riders through the Herndon stop. There were a number of supporting merchants and organizations who were out there to encourage this healthy and environmentally friendly activity.
What I enjoyed were a few families who ride in together, one mother told me this was their first time bringing her one year old on a bike ride.
Even the four-legged friends got to be a part of the scene. This dog, Hannah, howled in tone to the wailing of the fire trucks what whizzed by on Elden Street this morning.
With summer festivals and activities ramping up in Reston and Herndon, I can't wait to be enjoying more events like this. Here are a few of the images taken this morning in my slide show.
