After our gruelling Golden Gate bike ride we learned our lesson for bike rental. This time we went electric and hired two e-bikes. What a fabulous invention !!! You still have to pedal and you can vary the electrical assistance so that alleviated my guilt of using electric assist but it is just a breeze when it comes to pedaling... More

I decided to rent 2 bikes for 1/2 day. Mention of a 20% off with a coupon code was on a another website. Suggestion was to contact Bay Bikes and they would provide the code. I stopped in to rent and also brought with me a coupon from a competitor, Adventures by the Sea which showed a cheaper rate $25... More

We popped into to Bay Bikes in Monterey to see if we hire a couple of road bikes. The same staff were really helpful in discussing options, routes and places to eat after our ride. They offer a demo bike deal so we ended up with two high end carbon fibre Giant's for a very reasonable day rate, if you... More

Showed up five minutes before opening. Door was open, walked in. Guy on the phone. We looked at the bikes and waited for him to finish his call. When he got off the phone he asked us to come back in a few minutes so he could put the bikes out on the sidewalk. We left for 10 minutes.When we... More

Our party consisted of a cycle-obsessed Dad, a fairly inexperienced mum, and two lazy teenagers who didn't really like cycling. However, we all had an amazing time. Bay Bikes had a wide selection of bikes to cater for our needs. We opted for an electric bike for our eldest, and a tandem for the other teen to share with her... More

The bikes were really comfortable. We hired an electric bike - this is highly recommended and also a standard bike. The standard bike is one of the most comfortable we have ever used. And then of course there is the amazing scenery as you cycle along 17 mile drive. Stunning 😀

We rented a tandem here and were delighted to get a new and perfectly maintained bike. My only complaint is that the bike path was too short!

The folks at Bay Bikes are friendly, helpful and genuine and sorted our bikes out with 10 minutes of arriving. They offer a range of bikes suitable for all needs and gave us some handy tips for the day. Bay Bikes in Carmel did close a bit earlier than we were told, but the guys in Monterey provided excellent customer... More

We rented a Specialized Road Bike to use for the Triathlon at Pacific Grove as well as a Standard bike for getting around. The prices were excellent and the bikes were very well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
