        The Reston Century 2004 by the Reston Bicycle Club will be held on Sunday, August 29; more than 1000 riders will cross Loudoun County. The Loudoun Chapter of the American Red Cross supports this operation with four Loudoun Rest Stops. Our local ARC chapter benefits from this operation; last year they received close to ten-thousand dollars from the Reston Bicycle Club. Their operation is supported with communications organized by the Loudoun County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) Emergency Coordinator Tom Dawson - WB3AKD. Much of the ARES support is provided by members of the Loudoun Amateur Radio Group.
