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

A few hours before our departure flight out of DC, on a whim, we decided to rent bikes, ride across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and back and hustle to the airport. With no reservations, we arrived on the Bike and Roll doorstep, begging for service. We got it ! Although other folks arriving had reservations, the attendant was very flexible... More

This bike shop does everything right. Very professional and helpful staff. Bosco suggested we try out the tandem bike before riding on the trail, and boy are we glad we did! Not for us. After choosing the correct bikes we still got to try them out before the ride. Donald explained how to get to the begining of the trail... More

I really enjoyed the bike rental. The place was clean and organized and the staff was friendly. I had a great day biking over to DC and the equipment held up well.

The staff was informed, quick to serve and got us on our way in no time! The trek hybrid bikes are really nice. Rode to Mount Vernon and back (20m round trip). Fun day and loved getting a good workout!

We have sought out Bike and Roll in various cities across the US, and it is the ONLY way to see the sights. The staff is professional and just great at their job. This particular shop outfitted us for a 10 mile ride to Mount Vernon (PS-the only way to go). Safety was their number one concern, the directions were... More
