Pedal to the Waterfront
Bicycle is one of the best ways to travel around Washington, DC and to The Wharf. It's an easy ride along the monuments and museums on the National Mall. Local trails like the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, Mount Vernon Trail, and Maine Avenue Cycletrack will bring you right into the neighborhood. Once you arrive here, you’ll find plenty of places to secure your bike and explore on foot.
Please refrain from bringing bicycles or scooters on the piers at The Wharf.
Capital Bikeshare offers 30-minute, 1-day, and 3-day bikeshare passes. With two bikeshare stations along Maine Ave SW at The Wharf (at 7th St SW and at 9th Street SW) and hundreds more throughout the city, you can pick up a bike and park it at your convenience.
District Hardware and Bike at The Wharf offers daily bicycle rentals and a full-service bike shop (including a free air pump).
