“First choice for renting bikes in Nantucket!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

We rented our bikes at Young's because we had read many excellent reviews about it. And the reviews were absolutely right: If you'd like to rent a bike in Nantucket, there's only one thing to do: Go to Young's! The staff is very helpful and friendly, and it is obvious that they love their job. Service is great! The bikes were in an excellent condition - we've never had such great rental bikes before! So we were just very happy with our choice!

PS. If you rent bikes, we propose to go to Cisco Beach!

“Everyone says this is the place to rent bikes -- and they were right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Simply put Young's knows what they are doing and their customer service is just excellent. You can tell that the people that run Young's has been doing it for a long time and have the system down. We arrived to rent bikes and were biking in 5 minutes. They employ and army of young people that are both efficient and customer focused. The prices are in line with other rental companies. No reason to go anywhere else for rentals

“Awesome customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Everyone was so friendly and helpful here at Young's! They offered suggestions of places to ride out to and supplied maps of the island with the bike path routes on it. My husband and I had so much fun riding bikes together. It's definitely the way to travel on the island. Fun fun fun!

“A model of efficiency”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We stepped off the ferry and made the easy one-block walk to Young's Bicycle Shop. We were greeted promptly, and while one staffer got our information another pulled out some bikes for us so that by the time we swiped our credit card they had two bikes ready to go. They gave us a short explanation of the bike's features and some suggested routes to try. This was only shoulder season, but I was impressed with how quickly and efficiently they got us out riding given that we walked in without a reservation. The bikes themselves were spotlessly clean and appeared (and felt) very well-maintained. I'm not sure what their entire inventory consists of, but we got a couple of nice Cannondales with Shimano twist-style shifters. Locks, helmets, and maps were all included in the rental. One of our bikes had a basket and both had a rack and bungee cord. We had no problems at all with the bikes during a long day of biking across Nantucket, and returning the bikes was just as fast and painless as checking them out had been. I have no hesitation in recommending Young's.

“Really good bike store and extremely helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

We had a poor experience a couple of days before with a rubbish bike shop on the mainland. Youngs was the absolute opposite.

The Cannondale bikes were easy to ride, pretty new and really well maintained. The staff took time and we were surprised to find the seats already set up to perfection before we got the bikes. The staff gave great directions and good recommendations
