    Default Thank you!!!

    Hello to all:

    The response for Vienna BAC's W&OD Safety and Bike Rodeo event last Saturday was tremendous. The lines were very long but weather was absolutely gorgeous and all I can say was fun, fun, fun!!! I wanted to drop a line and say THANK YOU to all of you who helped us spread the word in the Northern VA and surrounding communities. Special thanks to Tim Kelley for introducing me to all of you and for his as well as the Bike Arlington Team's patience -- I tend to ask a lot of questions but very fortunate to have you guys as friends. Below is the media release, attached are some pix, and we also put together a slide show, This event was made possible by unrelenting dedication, support, and contributions by our partners, donors, sponsors, volunteers, many friends, organizations listed below. Surveys went out so we can get feedback as to how we can improve on next year's event.

    We look forward to seeing all of you in 2014 W&OD Safety and Bike Rodeo event!

    Enjoy your day and safe biking (and running, golfing) and hope to see you guys out there soon!!!

    Vienna, VA – Town of Vienna’s Bicycle Advisory Committee (Vienna BAC) held its 2nd Annual W&OD Safety and Bike Rodeo on 4 May 2013 at the Town Green. One of the objectives of the Vienna BAC is to help transform Vienna to a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly community. The event was FREE for the entire family which focused on safety and healthy habits while being active. Vienna BAC would like to express our sincerest gratitude to the contributions and exceptional efforts of the Vienna Police Department, Safe Kids USA, and Vienna Presbyterian Church. Thank you to the roughly 450 people who came to partake in the festivities on the Town Green on Saturday. More than 210 children from ages 3 to 12 years stood patiently in queues for bike rodeo stations with their families to get their helmets checked and replaced by Safe Kids USA, bicycles were inspected by Bikes@Vienna then children proceeded to the “mock course” taught by the Vienna Police Department. If you see our friends at Vienna Police Department, Safe Kids USA, and Vienna Presbyterian Church around Town, please tell them thanks from all of us.

    Eleven teams participated in the Team Scavenger Hunt and several women sat and discussed Trail Safety with Officer Kristin Ruddy of the Vienna Police Department. Thank you to all our sponsors and donors for their contributions to the 2013 W&OD Safety and Bike Rodeo, in alphabetical order: Bikes@Vienna, Caffe Amouri, CVS, Diamond Spa, Elevation Burger, Extreme Pizza, Navy Federal Credit Union, NFL Play60, Red Mango, Wholefoods. Visit them often as you are biking or walking around Town.

    Vienna BAC would also like to recognize and thank Vienna BAC’s Junior Ambassadors, Friends of the W&OD, NVRPA, Northern Virginia Healthy Kids, our many volunteers, our friends, and many organizations who assisted Vienna BAC in the many aspects of the event.

    W&OD Safety and Bike Rodeo event was a success because of the support, generosity, and dedicated efforts of our friends, partners, donors, and sponsors. We look forward to seeing all of you in 2014. To view pictures from the event, please visit or
