Viator Exclusive: Cherry Blossom Bike Tour in Washington DC

Cherry Blossom Bike Tour

Your bike tour begins at Old Post Office Pavilion at your morning or afternoon meet-up time. After getting fitted for a bike in just your size, you’ll set off on a mellow 2-hour ride past blooming cherry trees and led by a professional guide.

Views along the way include the reservoir between the Potomac River and the Washington Channel, dubbed the Tidal Basin. In addition to exploring East Potomac Park, you’ll easily spot Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr Memorial, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the George Mason Memorial.

The blossoming pink and white cherry trees make a marvelous photo backdrop. Snap photos while your guide explains how the many cherry trees in Washington, DC, came to be: In 1912, Tokyo Mayor Yuko Ozaki gave 3,000 trees to the U.S. capital city. The annual National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the longtime friendship between the United States and Japan.

Old Post Office Pavilion is the ending point of your tour.

Note: Peak cherry-blossom blooming dates are April 3-6, according to the National Park Service. If you book your tour before or after this blooming period, you’ll still enjoy some fabulous views and photo opportunities while learning interesting history on this nicely paced two-hour spring bike tour of Washington, DC.
