Here's more about it, from the Fairfax County Web site:

Opening with the Silver Line…The new Reston-Wiehle East Station will feature Fairfax County’s first enclosed, secure bicycle parking facility with a capacity for over 200 bicycles. The bike room facility will feature ample parking with a combination of floor mounted bicycle racks as well as vertical space-saver racks.  In-room amenities include:

  • Bench seating
  • Parking for oversized bikes/bikes with trailers
  • Two ”fix it” stations featuring a work stand, an assortment of commonly used bike tools, and an air pump

Access to the room will be controlled electronically. Each subscriber will be issued an access key fob which will allow access to the room 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. You must subscribe to use this facility. 

The membership cost to use this facility is $75 a year, which includes a one-time $15 non-refundable fee for the security device and application processing. After the first year, users will be charged $60 a year.

The room will be available to bicyclists starting on opening day of the Silver Line.
