      About this Washington, DC tour

      Imagine a country where people of all races and social classes found a way to get around their towns easily for both work and play. Where they constantly had pictures taken of themselves with their favorite toys. Where they formed social clubs to work out together, and collected items related to this hobby. Sounds a bit like our selfie-obsessed modern world, right? Um, no. This country was the United States in the late 1800s, when riding bicycles became a thing.

      A new exhibit at the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of American History features the U.S. history of the bicycle and includes a quote from Mark Twain, who told readers: "Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live." So imagine how cool it would be to check out that exhibit after riding a bike to get there.

      As the Smithsonian exhibit explains, we wouldn't have automobiles if we didn't have bicycles first. But getting around Washington via car is not fun. You want to be out there seeing attractions like the Wright Brothers' iconic 1903 airplane at the National Air and Space Museum, not circling around for hours looking for a place to park. (Incidentally, the pioneers in aviation got their start as bicycle mechanics.)

      Other attractions you can cycle to include the Washington Monument, U.S. Capitol, and the White House. And don't forget the war memorials dedicated to World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Or the Lincoln, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King, Jr. memorials. But really, if all you want to do on your bike rental is go for dumplings in Chinatown or get a chamomile tea at Teaism, go for it. We'll keep your secret.

      Blazing a bike path

      In recent years, bicycling has become a cool way to get from here to there. And it turns out that visionaries in Washington, D.C., have influenced the entire country when it comes to this trend. D.C. was the first major city to create a bike-sharing program for commuters, a program that places like Chicago and San Francisco have imitated. The city also established dedicated bike lanes years before places like New York did. Ride on.
