  • Just Announced

Skip the Line at the Washington Monument and enjoy D.C. by bike!

The National Mall is best seen by bike! Sure, you can walk from site to site, memorial to memorial. But, a bike makes the trip half as long and there is something special about pedaling in the shadows of giants like Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and Martin Luther King, Jr..

Book this exclusive combo and enjoy a half-day bike rental where you can ride at your own pace through the National Mall and it's iconic memorials. In addition, you'll receive a ticketed entry to the Washington Monument. This ticket helps you avoid the long lines at the ticket booth and the disappointment of the often-sold-out monument. You'll get to ride the elevator over 500 feet above the National Mall where you will get an unrivaled view of the city as well as Northern Virginia and Maryland.

This combo includes a half-day (four hour) bike rental as well as reserved entry to the Washington Monument. But, if you're still hungry for more bike riding after your Washington Monument visit, you can keep the bike as long as you like (hourly rates apply). Your rental also includes helmets, locks, and kids bikes for all ages. This package is great for those looking to make the most out of the visit to the National Mall while riding at your own pace.
