Discover DC Pedicab Tours
A certified sixth-grade teacher and a longtime resident of the DC metropolitan area, Shaady Fakhrai seems perfectly suited to deliver informative tours of the capitol. But it wasn't her professional experience or her hometown pride that got her in the saddle—it was a medical emergency. After a terrible accident left her wheelchair bound for several months, her only release was her physical therapy sessions, where she'd rebuild her leg muscles on a stationary bicycle. She made a vow in that doctor's office: "The day that I can ride a bike again, I'm going to ride my bike for, like, fifty miles, and I'm not going to stop." And that's exactly what she did. Soon after her recovery, happenstance led her to cross paths with a pedicab, and two days later, she was starting a brand-new career.
Today Fakhrai oversees a fleet of pedicabs and drivers who lead not only historical tours, but also bar crawls, holiday excursions, trivia tours for prizes, and demonstrations in ponytail physics. On the Monuments Tour, locals and tourists alike get the inside scoop on the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Vietnam War Memorial, and the National Mall. The Lincoln Beer Tour starts out by tracing the footsteps of the assassin John Wilkes Booth, and ends at a local brewery where guests toast the Great Emancipator with free samples. The DC Wonderland Wine Tasting tour ups the ante on capitol refreshments by letting riders sip still or sparkling wine while they tour the Newseum, the Crime and Punishment Museum, and the Friendship Arch, among other locales.
