Looking For A New Bike?

We here at Bike and Roll are firm believers you should not have to break the bank to buy a high quality bicycle.  Our goal is to get as many people on bikes as possible.  We know buying a new bike is a daunting process.  There are limitless options and many of us are faced with budgetary restraints.

Whether you are a daily commuter or just looking to start the sport, our End of Season Sale will have a great option for you. Bicycle riding should be affordable and accessible to everyone and we want to ensure that happens. No matter your body size or your budget, we have the bike for you!

If you are wondering how we can perform such magic, it’s through the sale of our expertly maintained fleet.  While a common misconception has formed that when buying a used bike you will have to compromise on quality, that is not the case with our bikes.  Our expertly maintained fleet has been sustained by professional mechanics and tuned up for the sale.  Our mechanics take pride in their work, ensuring all bikes are up to standard.

Please do not take our word for it.  Come to our End of Season Sale on Saturday, November 3 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM and find out for yourself.  If you have any questions about the bikes or the sale email bikesale@bikeandrolldc.com

T-SHIRTS, GET YOUR T-SHIRTS!

Bike and Roll DC’s fashion design team has been hard at work creating an awesome shirt that we’re sure will land you on the top of “Best Dressed” lists for years to come!  (Well, you’ll definitely be on the top of our list ;)…).  A wise man/woman once said, “Don’t sell a ‘souvenir’ shirt unless you’d personally wear it to a party.”  With that proverb in mind, we were inspired to create a shirt that was the perfect mix of comfortable, fun and cool (just like our tours!)
