We were able to get in and out quickly and efficiently. The friendly girl that was forced to handle the opening crush all by herself was the model of patience as she tried to help a difficult and self-centered customer. The bikes were in good working condition and her directions to the Mount Vernon Trail were easy to follow.

This was a great trip, the guys in the store were all ready for us, got us set up and on our way very quickly. The day was perfect weather and it is such a lovely ride plus the added bonus of actually seeing Mt Vernon. The cycling was very easy as the majority is relatively flat with only a few small sections with a hill. We took the boat trip back for some different views of the area. All in all a fantastic day and I would thoroughly recommend it.

We loved this tour even in the rain.The bike ride is self guides but easy to follow. 9 miles. There are some hills that can be challenging if you are not a regular rider. Mt. Vernon was super cool and the people that worked there so knowledgeable. We took the ferry back and again enjoyed.
