Wheel Nuts Bike Shop header trails


Wheel Nuts offers road bikes, hybrids, kid bikes and tot trailers for the whole family to enjoy. Our hybrids are by far the most popular bike to explore the region’s trails. They are upright comfort oriented bicycles with plush saddles, have 21 gears to manage any terrain and 700c wheels for efficient rolling. We have many sizes to accommodate different heights and the bikes are easy and fun to ride. We also have step-thru frames for women and folks with physical challenges that may find it difficult to step over a traditional frame.

Wheel Nuts is located at Mile 11 on the Mt. Vernon Bike Trail, ranked Top 5 Urban Bike Trail by Bicycling Magazine. We are 11 miles from George Washington’s home Mt. Vernon and 7 miles from the National Mall in Washington DC. This scenic trail follows the beautiful Potomac River on a mostly flat paved trail, separated from cars going through national parkland, wildlife refuges, sensitive wetlands and estuaries and dozens of historic sites. Our staff are all history buffs and love to offer tips, answer questions and give inside scoop on places of interest we call “hidden gems”-historic, funky, fun, obscure, beautiful, quiet, loud, picturesque and tasty!

All bikes come with handlebar bags containing a flat repair kit, lock, and a pump, and each bike has a kickstand and water bottle cage. Helmets are mandatory for each rider.
