From our friends at Bike and Roll DC...

This tour will be the first of its kind in Washington and we can’t wait to help deliver the spirit of the season to all of our guests!”

Similar to Bike and Roll’s signature “Capital Sites” and “Monuments” tours, Christmas on Wheels will be led by professionally trained guides and filled with historical anecdotes - of the festive variety - as riders arrive at each tour stop. Families and children of all ages are welcome on the bike tour, trailer tandems and burleys are available for younger children. Riders must be 16 for the Segway tour. Riders will be able to walk around and take photos at each stop and will enjoy a hot chocolate break mid-tour. Complimentary water bottles and festive end of tour treats will also be provided.
