Live Alexandria: The pedal power of Alexandria

I haven’t seen a unicycle yet. However, given the amount of pedal power in our town, it wouldn’t surprise me!

Whether you’re rolling on a regular bike or an e-bike, you can experience the best of Alexandria with a little pedal power.

Locals know how popular the bike-share has gotten for short rides, but did you know our city is the halfway point of The East Coast Greenway? It’s the longest protected walking and biking corridor in the United States, running from Maine to Florida! Some start the Greenway and find Alexandria so charming, they stay!

Alexandria also marks the halfway point on the Mount Vernon Trail, the 18-mile path between Washington, D.C., and George Washington’s famed estate. Those of you who use it to commute in and around the city know what a great ride it is!
