    Default Odd Kiosk Placement

    I see a new Bikeshare kiosk is about to open in Falls Church, on the edge of the George Mason High School campus. I'm always happy to see more bikeshare kiosks, but I have to say this seems like an odd choice. It's too far away from West Falls Church Metro to be of practical use to commuters, and doesn't seem to be near anything else really (except the high school, which is going to be torn down sometime in the nearish future). I wonder if it has anything to do with FC City's historic reluctance to support bicycle initiatives, including bikeshare? Or maybe I'm missing a key point that actually makes that site perfect for a kiosk? Or did some bikeshare planner just have a brain fart (it happens to all of us! )

    You have Falls Plaza shopping center right there and then a bunch of retail on the other side of route 7. Seems like a pretty solid spot to me.

    It's not alone. CaBi is expanding into Falls Church with 11 stations, including the one you saw, one at WFC Metro, plus 9 other locations:

    Does it need to be near any thing else?

    Now more reasons to go to Clare & Don’s!
    (As if tasty beverages and delicious Brussels Sprouts were not enough!)

    Clare & Don's also allows doggos outside.* Great vegetarian options too. What's not to love?

    *Some busy weekend periods they may not.
