We really enjoyed having the bikes. They provided locks, helmets, carrying case, pump, inner tube, etc. We were able to zoom around the mall. Parking was easy as there were bike racks in front of the museums, or you can just lock it up on a street sign. The bike rack at the capitol is at the top of the hill (south east corner of the building). Overall, we felt like we were able to spend additional several hours seeing different things because we didn't have to spend so much time walking from place to place (a 45 minute walk is a 10 minute bike ride).

Some streets can be busy with Traffic. We did a mix of trying to find bike paths on the streets, riding on the street if there was not a lot of traffic, or riding on the sidewalk if there were not a lot of pedestrians. You can use the sidewalks when riding around the mall.

The Monument Tour is the best way to see the monuments and memorials without tiresome walking or being herded around on a bus. This tour covered more territory than we ever could have traveled on foot. Our tour guide, Justin, described the history of the sites as we pedaled along at a leisurely pace. The tour allows time for exploring the monuments/memorials without any pressure of feeling hurried along. Bike and Roll provided nice bikes, helmets and bottled water. Bring a camera and have fun! Highly recommended!

It took a while to get used to "driving" the Segway, but once I got the hang of it, the tour was fine. We saw lots of monuments. Nick was very helpful to those of us uncertain on the vehicle and gave excellent descriptions of the monuments and other DC sights. Lots of fun.

Was looking to rent a bike for half a day to ride on the National Mall and this was spot on! Picked the bike up from the booth at the Old Post Office--Federal Triangle Stop on the Metro. The bike came with key and lock which is so very helpful as you can lock up the bike once you get to a spot and not feel worried about leaving the bike unattended as you take pictures and look around a bit. Staff was friendly....filled out some paperwork...quick and easy to check out and check in the bike. Would definately use again on a visit back to DC.

We have brought a group of 50-60 seventh graders to DC for the past 5 years on a school trip and have always started with a night-time Bike the Sites Tour. We have never been disappointed with the experience. Not only is it a great way to see the west end of the mall and all of its sites but also provides our students with historical background to make them more meaningful.
