The experience is priceless — but the cost is less than a good bottle of wine!
So what do you get with this unique service? My motto is “Your Ride. Your Pace.” I’ll meet you (or your friends or family) where you're staying and take you on a ride tailored to the experience you seek. Monuments at a leisurely pace? Sure thing! A challenging workout, spinning for 50 miles? You bet! You’ll get me and my decades of experience, enthusiasm and passion for biking, and local knowledge accompanying you on an experience you will remember fondly for years!
Choose a fully customized ride at an hourly rate or select from a menu of popular rides with a variety of riding levels, distance and time options. When you book a ride I’ll follow up with an inquiry of your goals to tailor your ride.
Fully customized rides cost $249 for one to four riders for the first two hours of riding time. Each additional hour of riding time is $99. Planning, preparation, and follow up are all included. That’s just $30/hour per person for a family of four or four friends who book a ride together!
Are you a road cyclist or triathlete? You set the pace to get your endorphin fix and/or fulfill your training needs. I’ll help take pulls and push you harder, faster, and farther while keeping us on the best roads and getting you back in time for the rest of your day.
Are you a casual cyclist? In town for a conference or traveling with family or friends and want to see the best of D.C. on two wheels? I’ll take you off the beaten path so you can enjoy the can’t-miss sights and hidden gems – like a local.
Have an epic adventure in mind? Want to go farther afield? We aren’t limited to D.C. alone! If you’re eager to get farther out, we can explore epic rides in Shenandoah National Park, Skyline Drive, Sugarloaf, Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the legendary C&O Canal, or Great Allegheny Passage. For rides of 7-12 hours, my day rate is just $749.
No bike? No problem! I partner with D.C.'s premier bike rental business, Bikes To Borrow, to hook you up with excellent hybrids and road bikes. Want to rent an electric assist or e-bike? Sure thing! Hybrid Pedals has several great pedal assist bikes with a throttle when you need a little extra boost. All bikes are delivered to where you’re staying and picked up when you’re done. Several of D.C.’s most distinctive hotels also have bicycles available for guests, which are suitable for shorter rides in the city. And if you are happy with DC's Capital BikeShare bikes, we can do that too. Whatever your preference, I’m happy to make all the arrangements for you!
For the best possible experience, I prefer at least 24-hour advance notice — ideally longer — to plan and prepare your ride. Day-of reservations are possible when I’m available. If we’re riding in D.C. and you have a hotel bike or are willing to use Capital Bikeshare, I can roll in as few as 90 minutes. For road rides where you need a bike, four hours is the minimum. The more lead time ahead you can provide, the better (and appreciated).
Why ride like a tourist, when you can roll like a VIP? Let me do the legwork so you can enjoy an unforgettable and hassle-free ride tailored to your desires.
Reserve your ride today and I’ll follow up with an inquiry of your goals to customize your ride. Feel free to e-mail (Jeff@DCCyclingConcierge.com) or call (202-798-2453) if you have questions.
