1. How do I join? go to the website?

2. I am a relative newb to cycling, but with much interest in transport policy - can I still get involved in advocacy activities? I also walk a great deal, for transport and recreationally - I understand FABB also does pedestrian advocacy - is that correct?

FABB is I believe a WABA project


Get Involved (http://fabb-bikes.org/getinvolved.html)

We encourage all cyclists to help make Fairfax County and Northern Virginia a better place to bike. What can you do?

Contact FABB to find out how you can work with us to accomplish our goals. Visit the Events page for information about upcoming public meetings.
Show up for public hearings and voice your support for better bicycle facilities.
Attend land use meetings to ensure that developers provide bicycle facilities for employees and customers. Showers, lockers, and changing rooms will encourage more employees to bike to work. Safe, secure, covered parking is needed by all cyclists at employment and retail centers.

Visit the Fairfax County Web site to find out about land use meetings in the supervisor districts. Visit the FABB site on a regular basis to learn about upcoming public meetings where your voice can be heard.

Hi, please check out our website www.fabb-bikes.org (http://www.fabb-bikes.org/). We're part of WABA and we'd be happy to have your input and involvement. Much of the work we do overlaps with pedestrian advocacy, but our focus is improving conditions for bicycles in Fairfax County.

We're having a social ride tomorrow AM if you'd like to join us. Look at our events page (http://www.fabb-bikes.org/events.html) on our site to keep up with what's going on.

Thanks,

Tom
