One of the most beautiful trail rides I’ve ridden! Close to 9 miles, it took several hours, stops with packed snacks/water to make it with time to spare to do the tour of Mt Vernon before Fall closing at 4. (Grandsons age 8, 9.) Not time or daylight to ride back. Was a highlight

This is a fairly long and not flat 8 mile ride. We did it in August dressed as tourists and were miserable hot. I suggest workout clothes for comfort and pick time of year wisely. That being said it was a good little workout and a fun/pretty way to spend a morning. This is all

Hey there! We always strive for 5 stars and would love to know if anything besides the weather prevented us from meeting the mark. As I'm sure you're aware, the DC area can get pretty hot during the summer and we try to accommodate our guests with waters to keep cool. Please email me directly marketing@bikeandrolldc.com if you have any further suggestions on the services we provide. Thank you!

We visited our young adult kids who live in DC and treated them to the experience of, not only Mt Vernon, but biking along the Potomac. Awesome day out! 5 of us cycled from Alexandria to Mt Vernon and had the tour, and then we cycled back to Old Town. Bike an Roll were so easy

We woke up to some crummy weather and called Bike and Roll who allowed us to reschedule for a couple days later with no fees. It was also really easy getting things switched around. Got text updates and e-mails with the new reservation. We took a self-guided bike ride from
