We really enjoyed the alexandria-mount vernon trip, biking out one way, touring mount vernon, riding a boat back along Potomac. The staff helped us adjust our plans when we were rained out one day, and the whole experience was great for both the adults and kid. The tandem bike was great for our 7-year-old. Mount Vernon itself was even more interesting than we had anticipated. They had a great activity for kids, a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibits and movies, a stunning location, nice and knowledgeable staff, and overall a great program.

We had a family reunion this summer in D.C. and decided to rent bikes to tour the Monuments. We had children, teens and adults and had a wonderful time together exploring the treasures of Washington. The bikes helped us to get from one site to another in a quicker time and we had no trouble navigating among the pedestrians. Bike and Roll made sure everyone had the right bike and equipment. We experienced no problems. Touring on the bikes was one of the best things we did in Washington.

I recently spent a weekend in Washington with a friend, and after a long day of walking on Saturday, we decided to rent bikes on Sunday. We chose Bike and Roll because of their convenient location just outside of Federal Triangle Metro Station and their close proximity to the National Mall.

The staff were professional, polite, and helpful. The bikes were great too. I recommend spending the extra dollar an hour for the Comfort Hybrid, the gears make a huge difference and the seat was very comfortable. The rental included a lock for each bike and an air pump for the tires.

I highly recommend Bike and Roll Washington DC for great value, friendly staff, and the best way to stay cool and fight fatigue on a long day of sightseeing.

We went on the Segway tour which covered all of the major sites ....Capitol, Mall, White House, Lincoln Memorial, MLK Memorial. I must admit this was our first time on a Segway, and while the sightseeing was great the best part of the tour was cruising around on the Segway. You are able to cover so much ground. They are very easy to use and I'd encourage anyone interested to give it a go. Our guide provided just the right amount of information, was friendly and helpful. As their office is located near the old post office, I'd recommend taking the lift upto the bell tower to enjoy the great view over DC, and it's free! The staff can point you in the right direction.

I loved this service. They' located right at Union Station. I got off the train from New York. Grabbed one of their bikes and rode to The White House. So easy! They had everything I needed, helmet, pump, lock. Great staff and they are connected to a bike shop and indoor bike rack security system. Worth going to see if you are an urban planner or a bike advocate!
