The bike rental went very smooth. There was a stand outside Union and the hand over of the bike happened in a few minutes. As such, I didn't lose any time and could enjoy the bike rental for pretty much the entire day. The people at the stand were very clear and answered all my questions without a problem. I'm happy I rented the bike with them because it gave me the opportunity to discover most if not all of the D.C. landmarks in one day.

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.

Excellent! Great service, awesome experience. We were able to explore more in the city without the need of a cab or bus. And Washigton is a great place for biking.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Wir hatten zu zweit für 2 Tage Räder gemietet. Das war eine gute Entscheidung, denn so haben wir viel von Washington und den ganzen Sehenswürdigkeiten mit bekommen. Zu Fuß wäre es bei dem heißen Wetter sicher sehr viel anstrengender gewesen. Das Personal bei der Radvermietungsstation war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Ganze lief total unkompliziert.
