    Event Description:
    Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck invites you to join him for a community bike ride on Saturday November 4, 2017, at 8:30 am- starting and ending at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton. The Mount Vernon District is home to many cultural and environmental resources and the ride will provide an opportunity to visit some of its hidden treasures.

    The Tour de Mount Vernon will bring cyclists on a 35-mile ride on paved trails, and in a few areas, the ride will be on the road, with safety monitors along the route. This will be a fun ride with some challenging sections on the route. And, to add to the fun, you can collect “poker cards” at specific locations that will qualify you for prize drawings at the end.
