While it was a very chilly day, the tour was great. Colin was very knowledgeable and comical. The only things I would recommend is having a brief introduction for riders on how to operate the bikes. Unknowing, we were riding in a high speed and it took its toll on the first hill past the US Treasury building. The second would be to offer some gloves or other things for sale. On the ride back with the 25 mph winds and 40 degree weather, it took us about 30 minutes in the car to warm up afterwards and we had to cancel the rest of our DC plans.
