    Default Fitness Center/Bike Cages at 4301 or 4401 Wilson Boulevard (Ballston)?

    Any chance someone on the forum works at 4301 or 4401 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington (Ballston)? According to the website there is a Fitness Center & bike cages in both buildings. I'd be extending my commute from 7 miles to 13 and was wondering if there were showers in the fitness center. I'm not sure how standard showers with a fitness center in an office building, but my husband's building in Washington, DC has both while mine in Crystal City has neither.

    Thanks for any tips! I've googled a lot and haven't found much. Hoping the email addresses on the website get back to me this week. I'm not sure if biking by and going into the building to poke around would be OK or not. Right now I have the luxury of storing my bike in my office and not sure if a new employer will be OK with that.

    I haven't worked there in over a year, but when I did...4401 had a locked bike cage (separate key for people authorized) outside of the fitness room, which has showers (and towel service!). Nice facilities. I'd assume 4301 either has the same, or the ability to use 4401 & just walk across.

    Default Locker and shower facilities

    Hi,

    There are secure bike lockers at Virginia Square via Metro, https://www.wmata.com/rider-guide/st...irginia-sq.cfm. Additionally, there is a fitness center 2 blocks away where you can shower and change. I think it's Gold's Gym or you can try out the Ballston Health and Club facility by the Ballston Mall.

    No personal experience, but it appears from the County Board approval of the building that 4401 has showers, lockers and secure indoor bike storage and that 4301 is required to have access to 4401's facilities.
