The W&OD Trail passes by the Landau Law Shop in Herndon, and a number of bikers use this path to get to work. “We’re definitely seeing higher numbers,” said Gaylynn Abram, a VDOT transportation planner. She said VDOT is working toward educating bicycle commuters, as well as other vehicle drivers, about safety to decrease the chances of accidents between bicyclists and vehicular traffic. According to the Connection Newspaper article, bicycle commuters will be visiting Herndon on Saturday, September 20, to gather information on safe commuting practices and routes. Landau has used the trail to bike and run to work. Family members have roller bladed and used wheelchairs to ride the trail.
