Post Silver Line travel guide

Photo: Washington Post
The Post put together a guide to communities served by the Silver Line, which begins service on Saturday: Silver Line travel guide: Five excursions on Metro's new rails. While the line will mostly be used by commuters, the new stations in Reston and Tysons open up those areas for exploration by anyone:
One common refrain about the Silver Line: “I don’t work or live out there, so I won’t be using it until it goes to Dulles.” But that’s a pretty limited way to look at the five newest Metro stops. Even if Tysons and Reston are nowhere near your regular 9-to-5 routine, there are plenty of other reasons to make the trip. We’ve developed a few potential itineraries — including a bike adventure, a night out and a shopping excursion — that will entice you to pull out that SmarTrip card.
The article links to a map of some suggested routes to the Tysons stations developed by FABB members Pete and Liz. Check out our new page Bicycling and the Silver Line for more information on biking to the new stations and info about using bikes on Metro. There are links to the Tysons routes mentioned above in RideWithGPS that include cue sheets, along with a number of routes to the  Wiehle-Reston East station mapped by the Reston ped/bike advisory committee using Bikely.

I think that might be my son in that photo of Lake Anne boat rentals. Yeah, the kid sprawled down at the end of the dock. :-)
