For a very reasonable fee, you do not have to stack the entirety of every bike in the family on the back of your van or SUV. There are bikes with and without gears, helmets available as are baskets (get one to carry things.) Sunscreen, - yes, bug spray - yes, water, yes.

A great thing about this rental place is how close it is to the entrance to Assateague. You do not need to bike through town, you have just a couple of blocks before you get on the bike trail over to the island. We brought our own helmets but wished we had also brought a bike lock since you can't take the bikes on the beach and we would have liked to park them for a beach walk but didn't feel comfortable just leaving them unlocked. You do not need reservations for rentals at this place. The bikes are fine, pretty basic, worked well. Staff somewhat disinterested in dealing with customers, but no problems, overall we would recommend this rental place.

We rented bikes to use on Assateague. The staff were extremely helpful and flexible: they quickly found us bikes in the correct size and got us on our way, and then rented us a beach umbrella when we returned the bikes later. I was able to settle the bill at the adjacent hotel after closing time. Rental was a total bargain, especially since there is no charge to bike onto Assateague, and it was a great way to see the island. My kid enjoyed the ponies who live at Bike Depot too!

We use the Bike Depot every year for our necessary beach equipment. We rent a beach umbrella and beach chairs, and even a boogie board for our son. The umbrellas are sturdy canvas and include an easy-to-use holder that screws easily and securely into the sand. Rentals are $6.00/day for each item, and save tons of hassle involved in trying to fit all that into our car along with our suitcases.
The employees are very friendly and helpful. They sell pony food so the kids can feed the ponies that graze just outside their door. (Never try to feed the wild horses on Assateague island, of course)

The Bike Depot is convenient to making your way to Assateague, and biking is the perfect way to see the island. The paths are well marked, and you can make your way down to a less populated area of the beach. Prices are reasonable, and there was a variety of bike and helmet sizes.

We stayed at the Refuge Inn, and rented bikes from the Bike Depot three different times during our week stay. It's $3 an hour and you pay when you return the bike. If you don't bring your own helmet and bike lock, you can rent them.

The Wildlife Refuge is directly across the bridge from the Bike Depot, so its so easy, safe and convenient for a family to ride over there.

My husband and I rent bikes first thing in the morning. We were able to park at the location. We rented 2 bikes and a basket to hold our water bottles and small backpack. We rode to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. There was plenty of paved paths with clear signage. The bikes are basic - no gears. Just be careful with your pant leg- my bike did not have a chain guard and my pant leg got caught once. Easy fix- rolled up my pant leg. We rode for a little more than 3 hours. The return process was easy. You settle the bill when you return the bikes. By the time we returned our bikes there was a small line to check out bikes. Great time. Had lots of fun and very inexpensive activity. Don’t forget to pick up your map from the shop before you leave!

This was the perfect location to rent bikes to ride over to Assateague Island. We were able to park our car in the lot, and the bridge to Assateague is very close. The owners were very nice and helped fit us with the best bikes. The rental prices were super reasonable. My daughter and I rented for about 2 hours, and it was under 10 dollars. They also had umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, etc. for rent. Very convenient! We would definitely rent here again if we ever make it back to the island.

We rented two bikes with a lock and basket for one day during our recent trip (which was all my legs could handle!). The staff was very friendly and the rates were very reasonable. The bike shop was in a good location to where we were staying and we were able to leave our car at the hotel and walk to get bikes. It is also very close to the park so it makes for an easy trip. I'm sure we'll be renting bikes from here again in the future.

This place is so good, it doesn’t need another review to set that. I walked in, got a bike for my kid with minimal paperwork and the option to return it after the place is closed. The bike paths nearby are perfect. The rates are great. I’m glad I didn’t drag my kid’s bike with me from home.
