The staff was informed, quick to serve and got us on our way in no time! The trek hybrid bikes are really nice. Rode to Mount Vernon and back (20m round trip). Fun day and loved getting a good workout!

We did the bike/boat combination to Mount Vernon and it was great. They are very customer service oriented with information, directions etc. We had planned to bike both ways but when we saw this option we gave it a try. Glad we did!
