Important Information for guests traveling with young children:

• Adults and teens can enjoy riding appropriately sized bicycles while smaller children can either ride kids' bikes or be chauffeured safely by the DC Cycling Concierge in his custom family bike (ages 4 months to 9-year-olds) and/or tag-along (ages 3 to 10-year-olds). The family bike and tag- along gives parents ease-of-mind about safety and predictability. And, if their kids get tired, they can coast on the tag-alongs or even sleep in the family bike.
