Electric Assist (E-bike) Bike Rentals

The Centennial Trail captures the beauty of Coeur d'Alene and it's crown jewel, Lake Coeur d'Alene. We have structured our bike rentals to provide easy access to this trail and the many restaurants and shopping downtown Coeur d'Alene and Riverstone Village has to offer. Our electric assist bicycles come in various versions to fit your size and style and are quality, durable and comfortable bikes. Have little ones to join the fun? We also rent single, double and tandem bike trailers that hold 100 lbs each. Helmets are included. An electric bike is one of the very best ways to enjoy some of the best shoreline in the Pacific Northwest. The electric assist makes the journey easy, even for those who haven't been on a bike for a while. Many who try it once are hooked on the comfort and increased enjoyment while riding a bike.

We drove 16 hours from California to Wallace, Idaho to ride the Route of Hiawatha and Trail of the Coeur d'Alene from Wallace to Plummer and back. The last day we did Dobson Pass. Truly a beautiful week of bike riding. If you like a challenge shuttle to the Hiawatha trail head and ride the trail both ways and then ride back to Wallace. We encountered poor AQ on the first day and a little rain on the last day but overall had great weather. If you can bring your own touring bikes to eliminate bike problems. Visit the Mission at Cataldo which is the oldest building in Idaho.

Lava Hot Springs, Idaho!83 contributions10 helpful votes
The Hiawatha trail itself is amazing, truly one of the wonders of the world. Our experience was hindered a little by the bike rental at Lookout Pass Ski area. We biked down the Hiawatha in mid September 2020 at the end of the season. The Hiawatha trail closes in late September, so these were end-of-season bikes for sure. We rented two standard mountain bikes with comfort seats. The bikes, though Diamondbacks, were barley functioning. Both bikes had trouble shifting and we were only able to use about two gears. The brakes on one bike stayed permanently pinched against the tire. We did point this out to the staff when returning the bikes. They were gracious and apologized, mentioning end-of-season woes. We weren’t looking for a refund. Definitely do the Hiawatha — it’s life changing. But rent your bikes elsewhere. There’s a mountain bike rental in nearby Wallace. In fact, if you can skip the preliminaries at Lookout Pass Ski area altogether, and bring your rented bikes directly to the trail buying your day pass there — you will be much happier. Definitely pay for the shuttle to bring you back up. Then you will rate the Hiawatha 5 stars.

We checked in on Friday and we were told it was a pretty light day. We bought the trail pass and the shuttle service back up. We drove up and started our journey downhill, it's a very pretty ride - the first tunnel is cold and a bit wet but it feels great on a hot day. The bridges and view are awesome. Overall it took us about 2- 1/4 hours to get to the bottom of the hill. Once there, we waited in line for the bus...and waited. It took us 2-1/4 hours to get into a bus, and that is a light day!! I asked them about it and got attitude - "you can ride back up" - which I would have happily done if I was told I would be waiting 2-1/4 hours to get on the bus. They were running buses every 30 minutes and made some excuse that they didn't have enough drivers - how a company that sells you shuttle tickets doesn't know what their demand for those shuttles would be ahead of time is terrible. If you do this ride, a couple of recommendations that might make your experience more enjoyable than ours.: Try to get there early - perhaps being down the hill first might get you better shuttle service. There is parking at the bottom of the hill where the shuttle picks up - if you start your ride going up the hill (or the top depending on your preference), you can turn around at the top or bottom and then ride back down to your car and get out of there. Ask them at the lodge how to get to that lower parking lot. Good luck, just don't rely on them to do more than the bare minimum.

It was a completely spontaneous outing for us and one of the highlights of our two-week camping trip. They've got the whole thing super well-organized and the ride is simply spectacular. Don't wonder if you're in shape or capable of doing it - it's downhill all the way. Prepare to get MUDDY! Just expect it.

My favorite part of this bike ride was the initial tunnel (over a mile long) that then opened up to a bike trail that took us over train trestles, through more tunnels, and in the shade of tall evergreens and open sunshine. It was a cloudy day so the temperature in August remained somewhat moderate with a breeze. We took our time reading the historical markers and eating lunch. Some people did a round trip. We chose to take the shuttle back UP the hill. Take lots of water!
