Make Black Friday a Green Friday!

Once again, we're going to be CLOSED on Black Friday (11/29/19).  Since none of us here are really fond of braving the crowds on Black Friday at other stores, we're going to try something different... we're going for a bike ride!

Many of you probably recall our famous Guilt Reduction Rides, which used to be held on Thanksgiving Day.  Since then we've moved the ride to Black Friday, as we got feedback from folks that it was tough to squeeze it into Thanksgiving Day.  Think about it... a bike ride in the fresh air, or sitting in traffic, fighting your way to some big box store sale?  AND you get to burn off some of those calories you consumed the night before!

We'll leave from the shop at 10:00am, so please try to get here a bit ahead of that.  Our destination is the train station in downtown Herndon.  We'll have coffee and tea and perhaps some treats back at the shop.

Since we're a drop off point for donated food for the folks at the Committee Helping Others, we encourage everyone to bring some canned goods to help out those less fortunate!

Vienna Halloween Parade, Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Every year, bikes@vienna rides in the Town of Vienna's Annual Halloween parade. Bring your bike or trike, decorate it and and dress up, and be ready for fun! We start gathering at the shop at 6pm, so we can ride to our start point by 7. The parade typically takes about 2 hours, and we'll be having food and beverages afterwards. Come on out and have a truly unique experience.

If you or someone you know would like to ride in the parade, but don't have a bike or trike, we DO provide "loaners" so don't let that stop you! Come one, come all!

Come ride with us in the 2019 Fairfax Independence Day Parade!

All recumbent cyclists are encouraged to join us on Thursday July 4th 2019 at 8:45am for our participation in the Fairfax City Independence Day Parade.
Do you know a vet with a trike? Ask him to join us! 
Do you know a vet without a trike who would like to join us? Let us know - we might be able to find a loaner for him. 
Costumes are not necessary but welcomed; 4th-of-July-themed bike decorations are expected. We usually have extra flags and red-white-blue crepe paper to share.
We are in Division 6 this year. (It's the next-to-the-last division in the parade, so if there any elephants it's likely they are ahead of us.) Our holding area is in the blue area at the corner of West St. and Main St. Just look for all the trikes.
If you want to join us at the shop to ride down to the start point, please arrive at the shop by 7:45am so we can depart by 8:00am!

For general information on the parade, see the link below:
