I was very excited to do this tour, we biked the monuments the last time in DC and had a great time, so I wanted to give this a try. The staff gave us complete instructions on how to get to Mt. Vernon, no problems there. However, I did struggle a bit on this ride, had to walk the bike... More

This package includes bikes, and helmets to ride to Mount Vernon, tickets to tour Mount Vernon and tickets to take the boat back to Alexandria along the Potomac River. My husband and I have two teenage children and the three of them managed the challenge of the hills very... More

For the price of this, why can't they give you a map? Told the operator I get lost easily. He said, all you have to do is make 2 quick lefts, one on Union Street, one onto trail. Didn't explain that the trail is SEVERAL blocks away. So, I made two lefts and found nothing. Came back for better directions... More

I lovely way to spend a sunny day in Virginia. I did the Bike to Mount Vernon trip, the price of which includes entrance to the Mount Vernon estate --- didn't have to line up to get in. The 9 mile trip from Alexandria to Mount Vernon is a scenic paved trail that follows along the Potomac for a great... More

My daughter and I did the Bike and Roll from Alexandria to Mount Vernon with the boat ride back. I signed up and paid on their website. An email that I sent the company (about when the King Street Trolley began running--10 am on Saturday) was promptly answered. We arrived at the location (the address is a little confusing--the bike... More

Bike and Roll seems to get good reviews but our experience sure could have been better. We arrived at the meeting place at the opening hour and had to stand in line for 1 1/2 hours to get our bikes. The bikes were not in good repair and were not ready to be given out. For each party they had... More

Make sure to check the tires and don't rent a bike to Mt. Vernon if it has just rained. We tried to get a refund because of all of the rain DC had for two full days (tropical depression) but they wouldn't do it. One of the members of our party had a pretty good fall on the trail because... More

I definitely recommend if you're staying in Alexandria! Bike ride to Mount Vernon was scenic and anyone in good shape will enjoy the 1 hour ride. After visiting Mount Vernon, we took the boat back. Had a lovely day!
