Young's was recommend by our Inn who also uses their maps for directions. Very easy to find where Steamboat Warf becomes Broad St. We were going to take a guided tour with another shop, but couldn't find it even after asking at the CoC and didn't want to book ahead with rain very possible. This was much cheaper to just get bikes and do self-guided on the spur of the moment. I am good with maps so we had no trouble, but had to stop very often to check the many turns. Very happy we did, exploring on our own was fun. Staff was helpful. No hassle to return our bikes to the alley afterhours lockup. We rode around town and out on the bike trail and roads to the Founders Cemetery.

After another local car rental place bungled a large portion of our trip, we remembered bike rentals - Young's saved the day. We set off on astonishingly comfortable bikes across a 20-mile island loop, picnic in basket, and it was the best thing we did all vacation. Young's had pristine equipment, and even the promise to come find and repair us if we had trouble on the way - though we didn't! Pleasant staff, great value. My only regret was to not come sooner.

Great place to rent a bike, take the map, and GO explore! We ended up biking 25 miles in one day and got "lost" once...a random passer-by in a car actually pulled over to ask us if we were lost, wanting to help us find our way. If that isn't friendly, I don't know what is! Beware, bring water and snacks with you, we thought that there would be places to stop for lunch, but since it was off season, we were out of luck.

With miles of bike paths, Nantucket is best toured by bike. Young's Bicycle Shop is a great place to rent a bike and get guidance on the best routes. Their map of bike paths is invaluable tool to get around the island.

This time we rented a car for the day instead of bikes. Process was equally simple and easy. The car, a Honda Civic, was very new, clean, and ready for us very quickly. So now I can recommend Youngs for both bikes and cars. and as everyone says, the best map on the island.
