The Washington Sailing Marina offers bicycle rentals all year long. The marina is conveniently located along the Mount Vernon Bike Trail. A twelve mile ride south will take you right up to the front doors at George Washington's Mount Vernon home, while a six mile ride north across the Memorial Bridge will put you at the foot of the Washington Monument.
We start renting at 9:00 a.m. every day, with the last bikes going out at 4:00 p.m. Our bicycle rentals are first-come, first-served. All bikes must be returned by 5:00 p.m. (winter hours may vary). Our day rate for the bicycles applies to any rental period longer than four hours.
