Our family did a bicycle tour to Mount Vernon. It was our teens' first experience with bikes with 18 speeds so they probably could have used a little more practice beforehand. They loved the ride though One got going too fast around a turn as the wooden bridges were a little wet and got some road rash, but otherwise a... More

We were in Washington on holiday from the uk and wanted to go to mount Vernon. After a bit of searching on the Internet found bike n roll offered the option to cycle on the mount Vernon trail, leave the bikes locked up, view the estate then catch the boat back at the end of the day. I pre-booked on... More

Summer holiday, you'd think this is main season. Spending 4 days in Alexandria, we had our minds on the bike & boat trip to Mt Vernon. Fortunately, we found a flyer of Bike & Roll at the Alexandria visitor centre. And then toured the waterfront for 45 minutes without finding them. Eventually, a friendly man confirmed that the shop without... More

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

The Bike & Roll staff in Alexandria was very helpful and friendly. The bike ride was 9 miles going which took a little over an hour (up hill) and about 50 minutes back. The scenery was beautiful and the trail is easy to follow.

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.

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
