At today's meeting the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors set the fee for use of the secure bike parking room at the Wiehle Ave Metrorail station at $75/year. From Reston Patch:
The yearly membership fee for using the secure, bike locker room will be $75, the supervisors said. The “Bike & Ride” indoor locker room, the first of its kind for the county, will accommodate over 200 bikes and include two small, repair stations and benches.

Free, unsecured bike parking will also be available in the garage, along with a future Capital Bikeshare docking station, the county says.
The county had hoped to offer a short term rental option available for 5 cents/hour during the day and 2 cents/hour at night. Over the course of a year of regular use the cost would be similar to the annual rate. However, many people like myself will not be using the facility on a daily or even weekly basis. We will want the option of a secure room for infrequent trips on Metro. To do so will require paying the $70 fee. In the future we hope an hourly rate will be possible.

Once we learn the details of how to sign up for the bike room we'll post them here.
