Thanks to Bruce, Fionnuala and all involved in organized the bike summit. I enjoyed it very much. I don't think I've ever seen so many people in one room with a concern for biking policy and advocacy. Also good to see two members of the BOS reach out (as well as at least one member of the School Board - who posted a pic on Facebook, which meant my wife, at home, saw me at the summit and told me so when I walked in the door after riding home.)

I was glad that in addition to the Tysons and Silver Line discussions, there was also attention to outreach to immigrant cyclists and other often neglected populations.

Also thanks to Tom Ross for showing me the short cuts of the City of Fairfax (after I managed to get lost on the Daniels Run Park trail.)

Thrilled to hear that Mark Keam was there. I think most highly of him!
