National Mall and Memorial Parks Bike Tour Season Begins

March 27, 2009, 8:58 am

Seasoned national park-goers take guided ranger programs for granted. Whether it's hunting for fossils on the rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona or stargazing in Haleakala National Park, Hawaii, rangers are always there, ready to show visitors the world inside their particular national park. It's no different in the parks of Washington, D.C. 

So grab your bike before you head there this summer. The National Mall and Memorial Parks Bike Tour season starts this Saturday on March 28, 2009 and ends on Sunday, November 29, 2009.

What a great idea, biking and learning. Bike tour participants get their exercise, while sightseeing through the nation's capital and learning about its history.

You can join National Park Service rangers every Saturday and Sunday for these FREE guided bike tours, starting from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Plaza, at the base of the memorial steps.
