Biking in Tysons Corners

A reasonably well-balanced piece in the Washington Post. Not much to add, though I worry sometimes about the idea that places are either dense and walkable and can/should be biked in or diffuse and car-centric and should never be biked in. Not every location in the metro DC region is going to undergo massive reorganization with a 30-40 plan to become a denser, transit oriented community with a nice street grid and lots of ground-level retail. There will still be plenty of more suburbanized locations that will still be highly bikeable (in that they're not too diffuse) that will still need advocates pushing for better bike access and facilities.
