Gettysburg to Washington, D.C. Tour

6 Days

We are excited to offer a great new tour that features six days of sensational biking through the beautiful countryside of Pennsylvania and Maryland, followed by leisurely days riding through West Virginia and Virginia along the peaceful C & O Canal towpath that parallels the Potomac River into the outskirts of Washington, D.C. What makes this tour even more special is that we include professionally guided tours of some of the iconic sites of the Civil War such as Gettysburg and Antietam and include a visit to Harpers Ferry. We end the tour with a gentle ride along a bike path that passes by some of the most famous landmarks in our nation’s capital.

You begin your tour with two days in Gettysburg and then head south following quiet farm roads all the way to Antietam, where the National Park Service will lead you on a biking tour of the area. The following day we bike along the Potomac River to where it joins the Shenandoah at Harpers Ferry, a handsomely restored historic village made famous by John Brown’s ill-fated raid in 1859. On Thursday we cross the Potomac at White’s Ferry and then follow the leisurely thread of the C & O Canal towpath to Swain’s Lock, and take Olmstead Island Trail to an overlook of spectacular Great Falls. We will end the day biking our way along interconnecting bike paths that take us to the outskirts of Washington. On our final day we are guided along surprisingly peaceful bike paths that take us past many of Washington’s greatest monuments and buildings, ending appropriately, at the Lincoln Memorial.
