We are organizing a bike train from the Starbucks at Falls Plaza Shopping Center (near EAST Falls Church Metro) to the Reston Town Center to hang at the Clips Beer & Film Tour. At the Town Center, we will sample some of New Belgium Brewery's more exotic beers while enjoying (free) short films displayed on a large portable screen at the covered Reston Town Center Pavilion. All proceeds raised at the event go toward helping our friends at Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling (FABB), who are dedicated to making Fairfax County a better place to bike.
The bike train from the Starbucks at Falls Church Metro will be social group ride, proceeding at a mellow pace. Bring blankets to the event in your pannier or backpack; definitely bring front & rear lights, as will return in dark. Also, bring your government identification if you plan to sample the beer.
