Bicycling Information


Bicycles are welcome in President's Park and bicycle parking is provided at the southeast corner of the Ellipse Visitor Pavilion.

Bicycles are permitted on roadways and most sidewalks in the park, except for the White House sidewalk and the interior sidewalks of the First Division Monument, Sherman Park, and Lafayette Park due to safety and resource protection reasons. Please walk your bicycle through these portions of the park. Pedicabs are not allowed anywhere other than park roads. Your assistance in preserving a respectful experience for all visitors is appreciated.
