extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and fun. They provide you with a bike map of the area, recommend the best places to visit. The road are extremely safe, and known a huge bike town. With a half day rental you can visit more then half the city!

Awesomely wonderful scheme! We filled in the forms on line and simply showed up at the Best Western/University Inn location at 9am. About 3 minutes later we were sorted with a couple of bikes, locks and helmets; no paperwork, no fuss. The bikes were somewhat...More

We borrowed our bikes at the University Inn location across from CSU. This location only has 4 bikes. The service was great. I would have given it 5-stars if bikes were in better condition. One of our bikes makes clonking noise while riding.

We did not want to pack our bikes on vacation, so we checked them out here. Excellent service. Well used but reasonable bikes. Rode some of the Cache la Poudre trail which is close to the bike library.

Bikes are free & the staff is great. Nothing to possibly complain. A great selection of bikes to rent & it's a great way to exercise and get around the city.

This was something someone told us to check out & it was totally worth it! Every city that has biking trails should have something like this! Fill out waiver before going... Makes process super fast! Get there early to get better bikes!

The annoying part is they have some cool bikes: but "regulars" take them routinely. However, standard bikes are always available during open hours. especially for those staying near old town: ditch the car and grab a bike: parking can be annoying and the Fort is...More
