Tour of Tysons

FABB is hosting a small, informal tour of Tysons on Saturday April 21 for local politicians, developers, county staff, and members of the Tysons Land Use Task Force. We want to show people that there are currently many bicycle routes into Tysons from the surrounding neighborhoods, especially from the south. When most people think about cycling in Tysons they only think about the bumper to bumper traffic on Routes 7 and 123. However there are many low traffic streets and a few trails that lead into Tysons. Within Tysons there are some relatively wide, tree-lined streets such as Jones Branch Dr that are very bicycle-friendly.

We'll also show that neighborhoods like Pimmit Hills and McLean have little or no direct bicycle access to Tysons without cycling on Route 123 or Route 7. We'll review access to the planned Metro stations and discuss needed facilities. We may sponsor a tour for a larger group in the future.

Here are some photos of a Tysons trip that some FABB members took in 2005.
