Our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable 5-star cycling experience. We offer a variety of premium quality bikes and ebikes in the newest models available. Our rental bikes are in like-new condition, serviced daily by our very talented mechanics, and are replaced with new bikes every 6-12 months. These are not your typical entry level, low quality bikes that you will find at other 'rental only' operations. We only sell premium quality bikes so that is what you will find in our rental fleet. Our bikes cost on average two to three times what others pay for theirs, yet we charge the same low rental rates- this is a tremendous value for those that appreciate a premium riding experience! Also, for those looking to 'try before you buy', we do credit up to $300 in rental fees towards bike purchases.
