I am very happy to announce that the second annual Tour de Hunter Mill is scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. This year, we will be starting at the Town of Vienna's Town Green with three routes that will take cyclists through scenic Hunter Mill District. Last year's inaugural event was a great success and I hope you will join us this year! I've included this video of the 2021 event for you to watch.
The ride showcases Unity in our Community, as together we discover or revisit the many hidden treasures, cultural and environmental resources in the Hunter Mill District. We have many volunteers working to ensure you have a safe and fun ride. Pictured with me is Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck and Chairman Jeff McKay who joined our ride last year.

There will be more details coming soon on the family, short and long routes, which you will find here. The registration fee is $30 per rider, which includes Tour de Hunter Mill socks and a $5 donation to the Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling. Please note that the event is rain or shine. If you would like to participate but cannot afford the registration fee, email for scholarship (or volunteer!) opportunities.

You can register to ride here. If you have any questions, please send my office an email.

A huge thanks to our 2022 Tour de Hunter Mill partners:

I look forward to seeing you on May 14!
