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 TrailMount 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.
