This is the most fun and easy way to get around DC. There are bike stands and convenient locations that are usually supplied with enough bikes for family and friends. It's much easer than walking and fighting the crowds. Much quicker to get from one...More

I'm so sorry we missed this question! We do not have a minimum age for our bike tours. All riders are welcome and we have plenty of kids bikes and trailers to carry all the little ones. I hope this helps!
