Taking Your Bike to the Nation’s Capital

If you’ve got Washington DC in your sights, you’re in for a real treat. Touring the nation’s capital has never been easier than on a bike, and the trip to get there is even better.

If you’re coming in from far off, take a plane to Washington Dulles airport and meet up with our shippers to retrieve your bike. This is a week-long trip that will give you deep insight into the history of this portion of the United States. You’ll begin with a ride through Virginia, which happens to be the oldest, largest and wealthiest of the American colonies. Next up is Baltimore, Maryland, a beautiful and charming homage to history.

Interested in taking a tour of the Harley Davidson plant in York? Visit Harley Davidson’s final assembly plant and museum, the largest of its kind. Don’t believe us? It employs about 3,200 employees who output 700 bikes each day. Allow two hours for this tour, starting off with a history of the company, then a view of 40 Harleys from the past to the present. You even get a look at the shop floor to see how each bike is put together.

Next is Gettysburg, an American legend with a place so steeped in history you’ll have a hard time leaving – especially if you’re a history buff. This 1860s-era colonial village is a treat to walk around. Don’t miss a visit to Gettysburg National Military Park. Next up, just over the Maryland state line, check out Catoctin Mountain State Park, chock full of twists, turns, valleys and rivers. From Route 9 to Route 7, you’ll hit Leesburg with a downtown that easily accommodates bikers as they hit up the diners and nightclubs.

From there, you’re on to Shenandoah National Park, then the stunning Skyline Drive to truly witness the beauty of the park. Go through Waynesboro to access the Blue Ridge Parkway, a 469-mile-long road starting in Front Royal, Virginia, winding through the Appalachians, and ending in Cherokee, North Carolina. Best of all, there are no tolls!

From Roanoke, head out toward Lynchburg then Charlottesville, a college town rich in history – home of Thomas Jefferson and the University of Virginia. Next you’re on to Richmond, an historic gem in its own right.

Then you’ll head towards Fredericksburg, the halfway point between Richmond and Washington DC. Don’t miss a visit at the Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, the Rising Sun Tavern, Mary Washington House, and Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania National Military Park. Continue on to Washington DC and spend as much time as you please touring the many museums and monuments found here.
