    • Capture memories that matter by the monuments and memorials of Washington DC

      Washington DC’s historical significance as a city simply cannot be understated. Take the bike tour that shows you why by taking you to the Capitol, Washington Monument, National Mall, Tidal Basin, and the city's most magnificent memorials, with the added benefit of bike rental.

      You’ll ride the National Mall, where hundreds of thousands amass to hear inaugural speeches, and which stretches between the United States Capitol and the Washington Monument. Park your bike in the shadow of the world’s tallest obelisk as you take in an unforgettable view of the White House.

      Next, you’ll ride around the Tidal Basin, forming part of West Potomac Park, where 250 million US gallons of water from the Potomac River rush through the basin twice a day to flush the Washington Channel. Cycle past numerous awe-inspiring memorials, including those to Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King Jr., Franklin D Roosevelt, John Paul Jones, and George Mason. Capture your reflection in the stunning blue waters of the basin itself, along with the Jefferson memorial which sparkles a stunning white in the sunshine.

      Onwards to the WWII Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorial for moments of a different reflection, before your day tour continues to the Lincoln Memorial. History buffs will instantly recognize this Greek-style building as the site of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and where the words of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech echoed off the walls.

      Your guide will be on hand for the whole bicycle tour to give you tips and facts about the sites, local exhibits, events, and venues.

        Best way to see the monuments!

        · Washington DC Monuments and Memorials Bike Tour

        Loved seeing the music monuments on a bike. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and able to engage with everyone on the tour. Can’t recommend it enough. We were able to stop at each monument to explore it on foot while our guide looked after our bikes.
