Washington DC History Electric Bike Tour
The gleaming, modern city of Washington, DC was once an eyesore of unfilled swamps, filthy canals, and horse manure crowned by a half-finished obelisk dedicated to George Washington. "Hooker", the moniker for prostitute, originated yards from the White House in Federal Triangle, where these women gave comfort to General Hooker's troops. Learn the dirty little secrets of how Washington, DC evolved from a swamp to a sleepy Southern town to the present day mecca for young movers and shakers thanks to the vision of men like George Washington, Pierre L'Enfant, Boss Shepherd, James McMillan and "Mayor for Life" Marion Barry. The following sites will be covered in the tour: Union Station Japanese Memorial to Patriotism U.S. Capitol and Grounds Federal Triangle The National Archives J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building The Old Post Office The John A. Wilson Building (D.C.

Hybrid Pedals is an electric bicycle store, built on the belief that people still want personal service from knowledgeable sales people, especially when making an electric bike purchase. We understand that, with so many options to choose from, this isn’t the type of thing people will simply buy online. Savvy buyers want to “try before they buy”, and so we stocked our store with bikes from several quality manufacturers, allowing customers to take test rides, get their questions answered and confidently choose an electric bike that they’ll enjoy for years to come.
