How many people can fit? 👨👩👦👦
One tricycle can fit up to three adults. Commonly we accommodate families of two adults and two small children with one child sitting in an adult's lap. For larger families, you may need to add an additional tricycle.
What sights are included? 👁🗨
Our tour of the entire National Mall on tricycle includes the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, the FDR Memorial, the MLK Memorial then down to the Lincoln Memorial which also features the Korean and Vietnam Veterans Memorials. From there we go down Constitution Avenue to the WWII Memorial, passing many Federal Buildings and Constitution Gardens.
After seeing the White House, we proceed down the Presidential Parade Route passing the FBI, the Department of Justice and the National Archives on Pennsylvania Avenue down to the Capitol, with the Statue of Peace and the US Botanic Gardens. Proceeding down Madison Avenue, we have an overview of all the major Museums on the National Mall.
How long does a tour last? 🕐
A tour of the monuments & memorials generally takes 2.5 - 4 hours. We go at your requested pace, and we can stop at all the monuments. Pedal time alone is about one and a half hours, and most people want to get closer to the monuments on tour and maybe snap a photo or two. So four hours is enough time for a comprehensive view of all the monuments and memorials and federal buildings to include the white house and capitol.
Where can you pick up/drop-off? 🏨
We can pick up and drop off anywhere on the National Mall: metro stops, most downtown hotels and restaurants. For locations that are farther out, we’ll provide a central meeting location where we can start your tour.
Can I bring my pet? 🐕
We love dogs! Not only are we dog friendly — with dogs welcomed into our tricycles — we actually (with your approval) stay with / pet / walk / water your furry friends while you check out some of the non-dog friendly memorials! Service dogs or dogs under 70 lbs ride at no additional cost.

In addition to the ability to adjust tour times to fit the weather, we have an optional canopy, and even a more extensive 'bubble' that can protect guests from rain or elements. When the bubble is up, it can get quite toasty inside the tricycle, even when it's raining or snowing outside. In the winter months we also provide blankets to keep you extra warm. If you need to cancel your tour due to the inclement weather we still offer a 100% money back guarantee.
