National Mall

Ride among our nation’s historic monuments and memorials, and take in the majesty of the National Mall on two wheels.

The Mall and surrounding Memorial Parks are free and open to the public, accessible from a network of off-street paths and trails. With so much ground to cover, a pair of wheels can help you see it all quickly and comfortably.

Grab a bike from one of the many Capital Bikeshare stations on the Mall and explore our shared history, cultural institutions and awe-inspiring monuments. Some of the attractions you'll see along the way include:

  • Washington Monument
  • Lincoln Memorial
  • Jefferson Memorial
  • Vietnam Veterans Memorial
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial
  • World War II Memorial
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial

Local Tip: Visit the National Mall and explore the monuments at night! Car-free paths make it a comfortable ride and all of the monuments are lit up, making for a stunning and much less crowded visit.
