    Like chocolate? I'm leading a ride from Vienna to City of Fairfax for the Chocolate Lovers Festival on Feb 4 or 5 -- depends on which day looks better with weather. If you're interested, comment here and I'll keep you updated.

    Starting Place will be at Vienna Caboose (there's a parking lot there. You get into it via Ayr Hill Ave). Starting time will be 11am. It's only about 7 miles each way to City of Fairfax. I will provide a route that shows the way back as well so you can leave when you're ready (i.e., not everyone has to stay together once we get there).

    Bring a lock and some $$ for chocolate tastings!

    This fun ride is a joint venture between #publicartfinder pointless prize sponsor @Boomer2U and Reston-resident karenbikes2. Participation is open to all who can ride a bike and at your own risk so please wear a helmet, use bike lights and obey all road rules/trail etiquette. Here is the 17.8 mile route with an easy option to shorten to about 8 miles:
    https://ridewithgps.com/routes/41867937

    Ride starts at the Wiehle East-Reston Metro Plaza in front of Starbucks. If you're arriving by metro, turn left after you go through the fare gates. If you're arriving via the W&OD, at the Wiehle Ave crossing, turn left onto Wiehle, cross Sunset Hills Rd, take the next right at Reston Station Blvd, then your first left up a cobblestone-ish access road to the Wiehle East-Reston Metro Plaza. Starbucks will be on your right, near the entrance to the metro. For those driving, there's a free parking lot at the intersection of Wiehle and Sunset Hills. From there folllow the directions for riding from the W&OD.

    For more information on some of the art we'll see on the ride: https://publicartreston.org/

    If the weather is foul on the 5th, we'll ride instead on Sunday, 2/12/2023, 11am.

    Thanks to all the public art finders who came out for todays ride! I had a great time showing you some of Reston's public art and hope you all enjoyed it as well. Here's a link to the list of art works we saw, with the name of the artist and a blurb about the piece: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing
    If you have any problem with the link, message me and I'll get it to you another way.
