DC is a great city for biking and Kenneth knows the best routes and most interesting places. We had a great time. Kenneth was generous with his time. It was nice to not worry about maps and routes and hear some interesting facts and history as well. We highly recommend this activity!

This was a great way to see DC! The ride took us all over the Mall to most of the monuments and Ken was a very knowledgeable guide. We stopped frequently for talks about what we were seeing and were still able to fit in so much! What a wonderful morning!
