Alexandria hotel to offer Civil War bike tour

Starting on June 4th Hotel Monaco in Alexandria will be offering a tour package to their guests this summer that includes a bike tour of Civil War sites:
Civil War Bike Tour Package

For history buffs that like to take a more active role in exploring Civil War history, this hotel package is a perfect fit. The Alexandria Civil War Bike Trail officially launches on June 4, 2011, and includes major stops such as Fort Ward, Fort Worth, Fort Elsworth, and Alexandria National Cemetery.

Package includes:

* Deluxe accommodations
* Printed map of the Alexandria Civil War Defenses of Washington Bike Trail
* Complimentary use of the hotel's Phat Cycle Bikes for the trip
* Healthy Snack Pack for two
* Alexandria "Key to the City" Pass

This offer can be booked online using the Book Now link above, or by calling (800) 368-5047 and referencing rate code "CIVIL". This offer is subject to availability.
Fairfax County received funding to produce the "Sully District Historic Sites Bike Map, a guide to family-friendly bike routes that highlight Civil War and historic sites in western Fairfax County" but we haven't heard if any progress is being made on the project.
