Located right near the St. Gregory Hotel in Washington, DC, Dupont Circle is one of the best neighborhoods in town for biking or scooter riding. Some nearby sights include the center roundabout and statue of Dupont Circle, the nearby Phillips Collection, and easy access to Rock Creek.
More for biking, Capital Crescent Trail offers one of the true off-road experiences in Washington, DC. It runs all the way from nearby Georgetown to Silver Spring, Maryland, attracting many of the city’s most avid cyclists, walkers, and runners.

Head over to East Potomac Park and ride out to its beloved southern lookout point known as Hains Point. The ride will take you through the city, and then the park’s winding pathways and tall trees. The lookout point ganders out over the gorgeous Potomac River and Washington Channel.
A short ride from the St. Gregory Hotel and Dupont Circle, the Georgetown Waterfront is one of the most scenic and popular spots to hangout in town. The wide sidewalks makes it perfect for those on bike or a new Bird or Lime scooter, and the riverside benches offer many scenic resting points.
Arguably the most obvious and most necessary spot to take your bike or scooter tours of DC, the National Mall is DC’s signature stretch of national monuments, memorials, and museums.
