THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME WE RENTED BIKES AND IT WAS FANTASTIC!!! There is so much more to the island than just the town. The bikes that are rented are very high quality and a breeze to ride. The tandem bike was incredible, it was so easy to peddle. My son rented the same bike he has at home a... More

This shop fitted my wife, friends and I with the best equipment possible. My wife is 5'2" and I am 6'8", both received bikes that were a perfect fit for our size and biking experience. My bike was an 18 speed mountain bike with easy hand gear shifting and a cushioned seat to sit on. Because of the outfitting they... More

We rented a tandem bike to take the bike path around the island. Very pleasant ride and terrific views. Not a lot of hills - fairly flat. I recommend that you take a break to walk the steps up to the Arch Rock. (I think it's 1-2 miles into the path if you head east.) The ride took us about... More

The first guy we talked to was a little smug but we have been going to the island for years and the young guys that work with the tourists were probably at their wits end. They have competitive prices and good bikes to ride and the mechanic work is decent. We ended up staying overnight and their overnight rate was... More

Me and the hubby rented bikes and went around the the entire island - it was amazing. Only a 8.2 mile ride - no hills to climb - a very easy ride. Take stops along the way if you like- you will pass the Arch Rock location, as well as the location form the movie " Somewhere in time" where... More

I rented a bicycle for a fast ride around the paved road on the island. I got done in less than an hour. With a coupon from the bike shop, only cost $8 for the hour, plus a free bottle of water. I was supposed to get a free bike helmet to wear, but I forgot to ask. It's a... More

We took our first bike ride on the Island ever, and had an absolute blast!! The business was great to work with, and the prices were the same as other companies it seemed. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the ride and the ability to enjoy it at our own pace. We will definitely do this again someday!

If you go over your hour they figure it out by mins not adding another hour to your bill! They helped our friend to get used to her bike too! We had a blast on the bikes! A must do when on the island!

Amazing experience! Stepped off ferry and straight to bike shop for rentals. Quickly set up with women and men bikes, each with tag-alongs for our kids (5 and 7). Enjoyed our perimeter ride! With coupon from ferry, cost less than $60 total. We stopped for riding breaks (pictures, rest legs, restrooms) but didn't dawdle too much at each stop since... More
