The annual Tour de Hunter Mill bicycle ride returns tomorrow (Saturday), taking riders through scenic routes in Reston and the Town of Vienna.
Introduced last spring by Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn, the event is scheduled to take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Riders will start at the Vienna Town Green and continue throughout the district.
Cyclists have the option of choosing one of two routes: a longer 18-mile route that ventures to Reston Town Center and a 5-mile family route that stays around Vienna.
In a self-admitted “cheesy” video, Alcorn’s staff used a sock puppet YouTube video to market the event — noting that Alcorn was out of town when the video was made.
“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,” Alcorn’s office said in a news release. “We have volunteers working to ensure you have a safe and fun ride and will have more details coming soon on the family and long routes.”
The registration fee is $30 per rider and includes event socks and a $5 donation for the Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling (FABB), a volunteer-run organization that advocates for safe and fun bicycling for all in the county.
The event will take place — rain or shine — with the former being in the forecast for most of the day.
In addition to FABB, sponsors include Reston Community Center, Public Art Reston, Reston Association and the Tysons Partnership.

VHC Health hosted its annual Trauma Survivors Day, honoring four former trauma patients and their care team on Tuesday, May 16. For many of these patient honorees, this event was the first time they were reunited with the team of healthcare professionals who cared for them after their injury. Both the healthcare team and the honorees expressed gratitude for the opportunity to thank, hug, and simply see one another again after their experience in the Trauma Center.
In May of 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia designated VHC Health as a Level II Trauma Center. This designation filled a critical community need; previously, the closest trauma center for Arlington County was in Fairfax or Washington, DC. Since becoming a Level II Trauma Center, VHC Health has provided care for nearly 2,000 trauma patients each year.
