Just a tiny repair shop at its inception, Rollin’ Cycles has since blossomed into a full-service store offering quality bikes and maintenance services. From Fuji road bikes and hybrids to Breezer and SE cycles, their inventory contains fits for all riders. In addition, technicians keep bikes in tiptop shape by providing regular tune-ups, performing cleanings, and playing lullabies with brass bike bells.

Big Wheel Bikes’ Georgetown outlet is right next to the C&O Canal towpath, a popular place for cyclists who like pedaling on packed dirt and clay. For those who prefer smoother rides, it takes just minutes to pedal from Big Wheel Bikes to the Crescent Trail or the Rock Creek Parkway Trail. Easy access to the best trails in DC is only part of the reason why Big Wheel Bikes is a top shop for longtime cyclists and novices alike. Bike rentals are available for anyone looking for just a bit of pedaling fun, and the road bikes, mountain bikes or hybrid cycles they loan out are sturdy and easy to handle. Of course, the shop also offers repair services and sales of both new and used bikes and merchandise, with helmets and cable locks provided for bike renters upon request.
