Mad Dogs & Englishmen is a full service bicycle shop offering sales, service and rentals. We are a premium retailer and stock a curated collection of some of the best bikes in the world. We specialize in design classic bikes, with a focus on ebikes, also known as pedal assist bikes. These bikes are ideal for exploring our beautiful yet very hilly terrain. You ride them like a regular bike- you can get the same workout (if desired), yet they provide you with an optional on demand boost of energy to help you tackle our steep hills and allow you to ride faster and go further. Some of our ebikes have a throttle as well as pedal assist, allowing you to ride the bike more like a scooter.
We offer a variety of premium quality bikes to choose from, all of which we also offer for sale. Click on the 'book now' button to see our current selection, availability and pricing. Multi day rentals are discounted 50% for each additional day. Select local hotels also offer discounted rates- please check with your hotel for any specials or promotions. Complimentary helmets and locks are included with each rental, along with maps or Garmin GPS.
Try before you buy: While you are welcome to demo any of the bikes we sell at no charge, we do allow you to rent bikes for longer demo rides to get a real feel for the bike. We will credit up to $300 in rental fees towards the purchase of any of our electric bikes.
Our most popular routes include Scenic Drive in Carmel, 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach and Point Lobos. All of these are great rides from our shop. We can also deliver bikes to remote locations and hotels outside of Carmel for those that want to do a different ride. Please contact us to discuss pricing and options.
To ensure you get the bike you want and the time you want, we do encourage you to book in advance when possible. We do offer rentals in person at the shop as well based on availability. Click on Book Now for more details about each type of bike we offer.
