“Why aren't all bike shops like this!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

We were riding our bikes around Prince Edward County enjoying the wineries and the beaches. One of our bikes had some issues and we ended up at the Bloomfield Bicycle Company. They weren't able to fix our bike right away but gave us a loaner bike and sent us back out. We came back at the end of the day to a clean, perfectly working bike at a totally reasonable price. WOW!! So helpful, and no charge for the loaner. These guys have got it right. Why can't all bikes shop be like this?

“Amazing service, would highly recommend”
Reviewed October 6, 2010

My friend and I were doing a girly wine weekend in the County on a Saturday where no guided bike tours were running, so we decided to rent bikes and tour ourselves. The Bloomfield Bicycle Company does rentals, sales, and repairs, and also organizes multi-day tours. The store/office is really easy to find, right on the Main Street of Bloomfield (just look for all the bikes on the front lawn). We arrived at around 1:30 and were told that because it was a beautiful day (the first after weeks of endless rain) many of the bikes had already been rented, but there were still a selection for us to test drive and choose from. The decision made, I told her we wanted to go for about three hours and have wineries to stop at along the way. One of the owners (I never got her name) produced a map and traced a route for us, recommending certain wineries and suggesting that we ask about delivery if we bought more than could fit in the basket of my friend's bike. She told us that at an easy pace, we could easily do it in three hours. The store closed at six, and we must have stopped at too many wineries (ahem) because by 5:30 it became clear that there was no way we could make it back on time. I called and told the man who answered our location, roughly. He said he would wait. Even though we went full tilt the rest of the way (including a rather tough stretch on Hwy 33 between Wellington and Bloomfield - my own personal Highway of Tears, my legs were killing me and it was all uphill :) we didn't arrive back until quarter to seven. The man was waiting for us, shrugged off our apologies, and didn't charge us extra. This would NEVER happen in the city. The prices are reasonable, $25 for half the day.
