WASHINGTON — In a nod to the (usually) insufferable heat of summer in Washington, a local e-bike firm has begun offering electric-bike tours of the National Mall and memorials.

No need to search for parking. No walking. Not even any pedaling, if you don’t want.

For $40, a new startup is offering three-hour tours of the National Mall, the memorials and monuments, beginning daily at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Diamond Teague Park south of Nationals Park. The path goes up to and around the U.S. Capitol, down the mall to the White House, past the Lincoln Memorial to the Kennedy Center and back again along the southern side of the mall.
