Bike routes to Tysons Metro stations

Photo: Pete Beers
Pete and Liz recently checked out several routes to the new Silver Line stations in Tysons. They found several decent routes along with some challenging conditions. Most people are surprised when they learn that there are several relatively bike-friendly routes into Tysons.

When people think about traveling to Tysons they're mostly familiar with Routes 7 and 123, the Toll Road, and the Beltway.  However, there are a few neighborhood streets and/or connecting trails that cyclists use to reach Tysons, completely avoiding the major roads.

FABB is working with Fairfax County, Tysons Partnership, and WMATA to promote biking to Tysons Metro stations by providing information on routes and leading rides to the stations.

Check out Pete's account of the ride, including links to maps of the routes they took:
Last week Liz and I planned and lead a ride with some members of Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA - Fairfax Advocates for Better Biking (FABB - to scout out ways to ride to some of the new Silver Line Metro stations being brought on line in the near future. We found a few surprises in getting around. Some stations are easily accessible by bike. Others are more of a challenge. The good and not-so good rides were not what I expected.
