NVRC attended a great health and wellness event at the Sterling Recreation Center. Partnering with Connect Loudoun, Loudoun SRTS, and Inova Trauma Services, NVRC hosted a table on bicycle pedestrian safety and promotion of bicycle pedestrian commuting options.
Over 232 people came by at the event, receiving pocket safety guides, tip sheets, and prizes for answering bicycle and pedestrian safety questions, or signing a safety pledge. There was also discussion around a bicycle and pedestrian crash map, both online and in poster form.
