A pleasant trip with a knowledgeable guide.

I enjoyed this three hour trip with our guide Cameron who was friendly and knowledgeable. We saw some very interesting sights. I found it a bit too slow and would have preferred a slightly faster pace or to have seen more but in all fairness there was a nine year old girl in our group of three. She was a competent cyclist. The bikes were good Trek bikes and well maintained and the helmets were good quality. I would recommend this company and bike ride. Washington DC is a lovely city! Thank you.

Lots of fun and a great way to explore the National Mall

This tour offers a quick but good overview of the sights around the National Mall (walking approx. 11 km). Those who wish to explore buildings, museums or monuments in more detail can do so on their own later. Well organized and the bikes are ok (good up-keep, various sizes and tandem/child cart options available). I recommend this tour for anyone in the area.
