Supervisor Dan Storck (D-Mount Vernon) highlights the extensive network of bike trails in Mount Vernon every year with the "Tour de Mount Vernon." This year is the seventh tour he's sponsored and it brings out the local bicyclists every year. On Saturday, Oct. 22, the tour starts at 8:30 am at the Workhouse Arts Center, and ends there as well. Usually there's food on hand and biking camaraderie for all.

The Tour de Mount Vernon brings cyclists on a fun ride through the southern and central portions of the Mount Vernon District including a scenic route through Fort Belvoir. The route consists of paved roads, paved trails and has several challenging sections. Ride monitors and Fairfax County Police help with directions and keep everyone safe.

Storck is a big bicyclist himself and puts much effort into this ride each year. He even throws in some personalized socks for riders - last year’s were shocking pink.

There's a 19-mile route and a 38-mile route for the real cyclists. Route Highlights include:

Workhouse Arts Center

Mason Neck State Park

Gunston Hall - Rest Stop
