“Great way to see DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

We hired two cruisers to view the sights of Washington. It was cheap and fun. We rode over to Arlington Cemetery and there was a spot to leave the bikes. A lock and helmet came included with the bikes. Washington is very flat and easy to bike around. We hired them for 2 hours but could have had longer.

“A Great Way to See the Monuments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2011

I took an afternoon Monuments Tour with Bike and Roll in Washington DC and had a fantastic time! My friend and I got bikes fitted just right for us including getting a seat swapped out quickly when it was a little uncomfortable. We rode in a group of 15 and I was a little worried about how we could all get across the streets togethether but our guide, Jas, kept us together, safe and entertained.

We got a little introduction at each monument and had time to walk up, look around and take pictures. Jas told great stories and was energetic. He also showed great respect for the history and lives represented in the monuments themselves.

This tour was perfect for an overview of the mall. The ride was nice and was easy enough that anyone could complete it. If you have small children riding, it would be good to supervise them carefully if they aren't used to riding in a group (how to start out in a crowd, etc.). But there were NO problems with traffic or riding in unsafe conditions.

Overall... an incredible value and lots of fun. I will definitely look into more tours in Washington or NYC or anywhere else Bike and Roll has tours.

“Outstanding service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

Wanted to see D.C and rented bikes for the family. We had the bikes for a few hours and one developed a flat tire called the shop and within about 6 min they delivered a new bike and we continued our day. Outstanding service.

“Lots of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

Perfect balance of biking and taking in the sights. The guide was awesome and knowledgeable. (we took the capital sights tour) good mix of sights and monuments. Lots of pedestrians to deal with, but you can't help that. Do not recommend if you don't know how to ride a bike (you'd be surprised!)

“Great way to see the monuments!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2011

We took the Monuments tour in the afternoon. The group size is limited to 15, which is managable seeing the group needs to get through traffic lights occasionally and a group of 15 can frequently do so (the guide stated that they prefer you don't cross with 3 seconds or less and the group will stop and wait for those who do not make the lights). This seemed to be an ideal size group - thanks for keeping it small Bike and Roll! Adequate time is given to explore many of the monuments and the guide had good information to pass along about each one. We went a few minutes beyond the tour time because of the recent opening of the MLK memorial, which they have added to the tour. Overall, this was the highlight of our DC trip and would do it again.
