What you'll do

You'll arrive 15 minutes to tour time to check-in and be fitted on your bike. Our hybrid bikes are perfect for city riding and we have a variety of sizes to fit you - no matter how tall or small. Our bikes have a handle bar bag and rack so you can store all the essentials - phone, keys, wallet. We also provide a water bottle for the ride.

After getting set up, you'll meet your guide & your group and hear a few safety tips and "rules of the road" before setting off on tour.

We'll head out to the first stop, where we'll stop and your guide will share some history, and unique facts, and perhaps a dark secret or two.

Your tour will cover about 5 miles in three hours, making stops at all of the major monuments and memorials on the National Mall and around the Tidal Basin. At each stop, you'll hear from your guide before being given a few minutes to explore on your own and snap a photo or two. Don't worry! Your guide will stick close to the bikes, giving you the freedom to wander a bit.

Our tour route will end back at our shop, where our staff can help direct you to your next activity. Or you can, choose to keep your bike and keep exploring on your own (additional cost).

I believe that exploring a city on two wheels in the BEST way to get your bearings, see more than you can on two feet, and have fun!

I've been offering bike and Segway tours in DC since 2004 and it's been amazing to see the business grow. Sharing my city with visitors is my passion and my favorite thing is when guests tell me that their bike tour was the absolute highlight of their visit to Washington.

I believe in providing great customer service and take pride in the fact that our tours are very family friendly and good for all ages. We want everyone to explore on bike and encourage them to take a bike tour in every city they visit.

When I'm not working, I'm spending time with my wife and partner, Janna, and our dog, Charlie.

A bit disappointed because we didn't go by the Capitol and only saw the White House from a distance. The guide Emily was super. It's a good way to see some highlights of the city.

Very nice bike tour of the Washington DC highlights around the national mall. It's so much better to get a good overview by bike than by walking.

The three-hour cycle tour is a great way to visit the main historical monuments around the mall. You’ll cover quite a lot of ground in those three hours, but it didn’t feel rushed and we had plenty of time to wander and take photos.

Le tour en vélo était vraiment super, Emilie, notre guide, était très intéressante, s'adapte à son public et est très gentille. Je recommande fortement !

Very fun way to cover a lot of ground! Definitely recommend it for people who’d rather bike than walk 5 miles and hear stories and take photos along the way!
