Pedal to the Waterfront

Ride your bike along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail or see the sights and monuments of the National Mall before making your way to The Wharf. Once you arrive here, you’ll find plenty of places to secure your bike to explore this neighborhood further on foot. Bicycle parking is located along Maine Avenue and Wharf Street, and even in the garage at the bottom of the ramps of the Blair Alley and Sutton Square entrances. If you are using dockless bikes, please park them in a safe and considerate manner – ideally near bike racks, and never blocking bike, pedestrian or vehicular lanes. Please refrain from bringing bikes on our piers.

Is Capital Bikeshare more your speed? With two stations along Maine Ave SW (one at 7th Street SW, the other at 9th Street SW) and hundreds throughout the city, you can pick up a bike and park it at your convenience. Explore the bike trails from Alexandria, VA, to Washington, DC—and discover your favorite new place at The Wharf.
