We came late in the day so a lot of bikes were already gone. We needed one for my 11 year old daughter and they pulled the smallest adult bike they had (she is too big for a kids bike). The girl who worked here spent literally a good 15-20 minutes evaluating my daughter on the bike and expressing concern... More

GREAT, top-of-the-line bikes. Super friendly, helpful staff (Audrey and Katherine rock!). They provided us with maps and all the helpful advice we needed to have a fantastic day biking all over the island.

Very friendly staff. All the rental shops have the same basic prices for bike rentals. We chose this place as the bikes looked comfy. The staff had our family if four set up on bikes in less than 10 minutes. They did not nickel and dime us as I thought they might. Locks, helmets, and baskets were all included. And... More

just walk around town and its easy to see that to ride around in a fairly new, well taken care of Cannondale is just one of the reasons i have to come back here year after year. I've never done a price comparison with the other companies but how much can you be saving? They treat and greet me like... More

Loved the bike ride through the cobblestone streets and the bike path to Cisco beach. The roads are narrow in town so make sure you observe the rules of the road - don't go the wrong way on one way streets!

I took my bike next door to NANTUCKET BIKE SHOP and the fixed the broken spoke in 20 minutes. The staff at NANTUCKET BIKE SHOP fixed... More

Kevin, Thank you for taking the time to send in this review. It's exciting to get 5 star reviews, but it's more important for our business to hear from customers when their experience has not gone so well. I wish we could fix every bike that comes in to Young's in 20 minutes and I'm sorry that our service technician... More

We were taking the last ferry back to the mainland and wanted to keep our bikes until we left. 2 other shops told us we must return by 5:30pm. The visitor's center pointed us towards Young's and we're so glad they did! The staff was fabulous, especially the delightful Islander who fitted us and made suggestions for the day. (We... More

Came in, got 2 bikes, Left! It was a spur of the moment thing to rent bikes and ride it around Nantucket. The bikes were in great condition, new, worked well. Seamless rental!

There is another bicycle rental shop that has locations on either side of Young's. Ignore them and go to Young's. This is the real deal. Late model bikes with functional shifters. We rented from both shops on different days and the other guys' bike always slipped gears.
