Best way to see DC!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The bikes were in excellent condition and comfortable. My daughter and I saw so many more sites because of the bikes than we would have on foot. DC is very bike-friendly. Even with 90+ degree weather, we enjoyed our biking experience.

Fast, easy service, great way to visit the Mall

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2011

What a great way to see as much of the city in a short amount of time. I "think" I saw it all! My biggest mistake was not going for a ride along the waterfront. Now I know!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

Perfect way to see almost all of the memorials with children. The ease of getting around was great. Only drawback was the lack of bike racks or knowledge of where bikes could be locked up while walking through and around the memorials.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

Renting the bikes was a godsend to get around for the two days that we had them. Washington is great to get around on your bikes as you are allowed on the walkways with them. It was so hot that walking around would of been so slow and draining. The bikes allowed us to explore places that you would not walk to i.e Theodore Roosevelt Island, we biked over to Arlington aswell. The only hiccup I had was that I was refused to take the bikes at first, I had prebooked and paid for the hire of the bikes so I thought I would only need paperwork voucher to present when collecting them, you also need a credit card to hire the bikes for proof and for them incase you decide to steal the bikes! So I was sent back to my hotel to get my card to my frustration! Don't forget your credit card when collecting the bikes.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2008

Very much enjoyed being able to rent the bicycles, but was not happy at all with the owners asking they be returned three hours earlier than the advertised closing time.
