Metro area cyclists ride through Fort Belvoir during the annual Tour de Mount Vernon, Saturday..

Amid ideal fall weather conditions, bicyclists from across Northern Virginia took in Fort Belvoir’s local color as they passed through the installation during the annual Tour de Mount Vernon ride, Saturday.

Col. Michael Greenberg, Fort Belvoir garrison commander, rode amid the field of cyclists on the course that started and ended at the Workhouse Art Center—a trek of some 20-35 miles.

According to Fairfax County’s website, the Tour de Mount Vernon is designed to bring cyclists on a fun ride through the southwestern part of the Mount Vernon District and on a scenic route through Fort Belvoir. Riders could go 20 or 35 miles. Ride monitors and Fairfax County Police patrolled the event.
