“Great service, great value, great bikes & a great alternative to organized wine tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This past May long weekend a group of seven of us rented a cottage in Bloomfield. We had initially looked into a few of the organized wine tour options (which ran about 100-135$/person for about a 6 hour tour). Instead, we decided to each rent a bike through Bloomfield bicycle company and we were extremely glad we did.

Firstly, excellent value. 35$ per person and we had the bikes delivered to us (that is right, the bikes were delivered to our location!) at 9:30 am and picked up again at 6:00pm. Before the bikes were dropped off, we were able to customize the rental based on height/inseam, sex, type of bike (road, mountain, hybrid) etc. The staff were prompt with their email correspondence and right on time for both drop-off and pick-up and they provided detailed (and energetic) safety and technical instructions regarding the bike use as well as provided some great tips on which routes and wineries to visit. They will even pick you up if you get stuck! A few in our group were novice riders but felt quite comfortable with the instructions and tips we received.

The bikes themselves were in great shape and surpassed our expectations for rental bikes. The biking conditions around the Bloomfield/Wellington area are quite good - lots of paved roads with biker friendly shoulders (although there are some gravel country roads - so a hybrid bike is not a bad idea). All in all, I would highly recommend using this company if you are looking for a way to explore the beautiful farms, wineries and PEC countryside at your own pace. Get out this summer, Grab some friends, grab a bike, explore and have a blast! Make sure to hit Karlo Estates winery along your trip!

Oh yeah - one more thing - you get to keep the water bottle as a souvenir.

“KT and the gang are perfect entrepreneurs..visiting is always a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

KT not only repairs and rents great bikes, but she and her staff ensure that you have the best service and great rides. Once, when friends left their bikes at Jackson's Schoolhouse expecting rainy weather..she insisted on lending, not renting, bikes and helmets..no deposits, just encourage ENT to enjoy the County!

“Local bikes with attitude”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We stopped in and rented out a couple of bikes to tour on. Derek was really helpful and set us up with everything we needed. Their store is well stocked with Everything! They have a very real attitude and great humour. I hope to get back and take a week rental someday soon!

“Why aren't all bike shops like this!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

We were riding our bikes around Prince Edward County enjoying the wineries and the beaches. One of our bikes had some issues and we ended up at the Bloomfield Bicycle Company. They weren't able to fix our bike right away but gave us a loaner bike and sent us back out. We came back at the end of the day to a clean, perfectly working bike at a totally reasonable price. WOW!! So helpful, and no charge for the loaner. These guys have got it right. Why can't all bikes shop be like this?
