Run by three generations of DC locals, Bike and Roll sends pedalers into the nation's modern and historical capitol. Sightseers are outfitted with ETs with maps so they can undertake self-guided tours along the National Mall, which is lousy with landmarks. To break with the hustle—and should one be so inclined, the bustle—cyclists can explore one of the city’s many meandering bike paths including the Capital Crescent Trail and Rock Creek Trail. The company’s line of tandem bikes and Trek comfort hybrids make for smooth rides along the flat terrain of the capital.
For a more itineraried experience, guided tours spirit groups through the historic sights. Local story-tellers regale cyclists with tales about the Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, the White House, and Mount Vernon, the home where George Washington lived after hatching from the egg incubated in the Statue of Liberty's torch.
When Denise D'Amour and Laurie Morin opened Capitol Hill Bikes on 8th Street almost 15 years ago, they had a vision not only of a bustling store, but also a thriving cycling community. Today, they continue to support their fellow riders by stocking a top-tier selection of new bikes and gear, with an especial emphasis on equipment designed for women. Expert tune-ups and repairs keep cycles cycling, and weekly community rides promote love of the sport while participants tour the city's monuments, breweries, and discarded Ben Franklin inventions.
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.
Granted, scuba diving isn’t the first sport on people’s minds when they think of Washington, DC. But in any major urban center, there are bound to be plenty of people who like to go underwater, and DC is no exception. Blue Planet Scuba is where those water lovers dive into when they need the newest gear. Aside from selling scuba stuff, Blue Planet also offers certification programs, runs classes and organizes group and custom dive trips. While the Dupont area store is small, anyone who enters will be surprised to discover the large diving community that Blue Planet Scuba has developed. In fact, regular guests will start feeling like they are going to a club headquarters rather than a store.
