The Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton is hosting a Brewfest this weekend, Saturday 13 August 2016. Free bicycle parking will be available (it costs $15 to park a car at the Workhouse).
Also, bicyclists get a $5 per ticket discount. To get the discount purchase your tickets on-line using the promo code “BIKE”. Get your tickets here.
You can park your car for free at locations 1 mile to 9.5 miles (see below) from the Workhouse, and head straight there, or join us on one of five organized pre-event rides that start from the Vulcan Parking Lot, the nearest free parking site.
Potomac Pedalers Bicycle Club in association with Active Prince William are organizing these bike rides the morning of the event. Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling (FABB) and Active Prince William have also mapped out ride cues to get to the event from locations in Fairfax and Prince William Counties.
