Our Washington DC Tours all depart from our location near the Wharf at 998 Maine Avenue. All you need to bring is a valid ID and credit card. We will size you for your bikes and provide you with a helmet. Helmets are required for anyone under the age of twenty-one and optional for anyone twenty-one and older. After everyone is situated on their bikes, our tour guides will take you out.

Do you need to be skilled?

Our bike tours are not strenuous. The route is relatively flat, and you will ride for about 8 minutes at a time before stopping and learning some history and seeing the beautiful architecture of DC.

What if I can’t ride a bike at all?

Unlimited Biking offers Segway Tours! If you are concerned about your ability to ride a bike or just prefer to exert less energy, this is a great alternative! Our Segway tours leave from the same location (998 Maine Avenue) and are perfect for less experienced riders. You must be at least 16 years old for the Segway tours. Before the tour, you will receive safety and training instructions. You still get wonderful information and a real insight into the city.

Can kids join?

Kids are welcome to join our tours! They can ride their own bike independently. Alternatively, in Washington DC, we do allow children to ride with attachments to adult bikes. They can either use our tag-a-longs, which function like tandem bikes or they can use our double trailers, which follow behind the adult bike with the child secured inside. Children are required to wear helmets.

Can I use an ebike on a tour?

If you would like, you can upgrade to electric bikes for the duration of the tour. Our ebikes are pedal assist, so you are still riding a bike, but you get more speed for your effort. Please note: we cannot guarantee that anyone else will be on an ebike for the tour, so you might have to go slower than you would like to stick with the rest of the group. To ride an ebike, you must be at least 16 years of age.

How much does a tour cost?

Our Best of Capitol Hill bike tour is $45 for adults and $40 for children under 13. For our Monuments and Memorials tour, the price varies based on what time you go and if you rent an ebike.

Can I do a Private Tour?

Of course! Washington DC is gorgeous. Our tour guides know that guests want to take photos and they are happy to give you the time to do that at each stop. They will take the photos for you as well!
