Across the street from the Del Monte Hotel and the Erie Canal Trail, tis bike shop offered comfortable rentals by the hour. We enjoyed a great hour long ride on the Canal path which wasn't crowded, then the excellent staff advised me on equipment I had been looking for but not found at home. I noticed they sell e-bikes- I LOVE mine- but not sure if they rent. But the Canal path is so flat, you don't need an e-bike.

We were staying in Medina NY and wanted to spend a day cycling along the Erie Canal. To our surprise, there seemed to be no place east of Buffalo where we could rent bikes and easily access the Canal - until we discovered Towpath Bike in Pittsford, on the outskirts of Rochester. This excellent shop is right on the towpath. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful, the bikes are comfortable cruisers and well maintained. There's a parking lot and places to eat nearby. We're from a great bicycling city with great bike shops: Portland OR, so we really appreciate a good place like Towpath. Go east as we did or west along the canal and see some of the best of upstate New York.

Great shop, friendly and professional staff in a great location for biking the Erie Canal.
I wanted a hybrid mountain bike style tandem for my GF and I to ride the canal. The tandem we rented was more of a cruiser type that I think my mom or grandmother would have appreciated. Beware. This is not a negative if that’s what you want, just wish the staff would have answered me clearly when I pressed for a better description when making the reservation.
The seat was very uncomfortable and the bike wanted to shift gears on its own as we rode.
I had hoped to ride 40 plus miles.
10 miles, dinner and drinks which ended up being a blast and that’s what counted. Think it was the company I keep and not the bike that made it a success.
At $100 For the day I was disappointed and felt a bit foolish.

From start to finish we were given the best of care and info about their best bikes by TREK. We did not make the purchase just yet but felt very confident in this shop if we decide to buy.

Rented a high end road bike for a couple of rides for my short stay in the Rochester area. I cannot speak highly enough of these guys - exceptional customer service, nothing is too much trouble and the bike, a Trek Emonda SL6 was sweet! The guys gave me several excellent routes to explore and i managed to do a short 18 miler and a rolling 52 miles into lovely countryside on quiet roads - if there were more stars to give, they’d get them! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Found myself at Towpath Bike Shop because another bike shop just down the road had terrible service last night. Being a relative novice I needed some help and the Towpath Staff delivered. From Sara helping me find the accessories I needed and helping me fit new shoes to the tech that did the install on my road bike who was very patient with my questions to KD at the register who was efficient, offered other advice and some humor sprinkled in. Towpath won over a customer with Excellent service!

Stopped in recently, had issues with bike rack. They were quite helpful and had me set up quickly. Inventory is awesome, as well as tons of accessories. They do rentals too.

Although we live nearby, I visit this shop often to rent more bikes when out of town family comes to visit. Staff is helpful and knowledgeable. And the store is super convenient to bike path along the Erie Canal. The perfect spot to rent bikes and take a trip along the canal.
