Experience our Monuments, Memorials & Arlington Cemetery Bike Tour.

This tour is offered on a seasonal basis, April through October.

Spanning nearly two miles in length, D.C's National Mall is home to some of the most moving and inspiring memorials our nation has to offer. Get up close and personal to the highlights of this special area along with one of our expert tour guides. Our bikes allow you to pedal along the wide sidewalks and see so much more than you ever could on your feet, without wearing yourself out walking from monument to monument. We'll cruise to numerous of the treasures in the National Mall, including the World War II Memorial, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and many, many more. 

We'll take a brief stop for lunch (cost not included) and cross the Potomac River into Virginia for what is arguably one of the most moving memorials in D.C: Arlington National Cemetery. We'll park our bikes at the entrance and stroll the hills of the cemetery on foot including Arlington House, the Kennedy Gravesite, and Tomb of the Unknown Solider where we will stop and witness the incredible Changing of the Guard ceremony. 

Join us on one of the most unique and memorable bike rides in Washington DC!

    Reservations are not required for our D.C. bike tours but are highly recommended to guarantee that there will be space on the tour. If you have children in your group, if you are booking a large group (8 or more), or if you are looking to book a night tour, reservations are strongly recommended.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children?

    Absolutely! We have tons of families as we're a great family activity. We have 4 options for children depending on their age, size, and riding ability:

    • For children under 18 months of age or 45lbs (20kg), we have baby seats that can be attached to the back of a bike.
    • For children children weighing up to 65lbs (30kg), we have trailers that can be left open or zipped up to fully enclose the passenger.
    • For children up to 12 years old or 100lbs (45kg), we have 2 wheeled tandem trailers. The passenger sits on a seat and can pedal or coast. All riders over 100lbs (45kg) must ride their own bicycle. We have various smaller sized mountain bikes for those able to ride on their own, and of course, our regular beach cruisers for children big enough to ride them.
    • Unfortunately, we do not have any adult tricycles or bikes with training wheels for adults that may be less confident in their riding ability. If possible, please let us know if you would like one of our tandems, trailers, baby seats, or child bikes in advance that you'd like to reserve either a child seat or trailer.
    • Please Note: All child bikes use hand brakes. There are no pedal brakes available.
