Bike rental in October

My daughter and I are visiting Chincoteague over Columbus Day weekend and are hoping that there will still be companies renting bikes for our use. Does anyone know if the bike rental companies stay open that late. It will be Oyster Festival weekend, so we are hoping to visit that, too.

There are only a couple of bike rentals on the island that are privately owned and operated. The rest are operated by hotels, although not all hotels offer bike rentals. That late in the year you might not find any of the privately owned businesses open. Although some will open for holidays like Columbus Day. Try Jus'Bikes, on Maddox Blvd, accross from Marias Resturant, Or you could try the Refuge Motor Inn. They have a bike rental right next door and I'm pretty sure they will be able to help. I would call ahead just to make sure though. Both places are listed.

Thanks,I will contact them. We have rented a condo on the marina side, so I don't know if a hotel will rent to us if we are not staying there. Does it get crowded over Columbus Day weekend? Relatively?

It's pretty crowded for post-season, but certainly not like the height of summer. The weather is usually beautiful then! The bike rental at the Refuge Hotel (right next to McDonald's, just outside the refuge) is open through Thanksgiving weekend - as are most of the bike rental places on the island. Even though it's connected to the hotel, they rent bikes to anyone with an i.d. and are the closest to the beach.
