Easily update your rental period
Our rate flexibility doesn’t end with our after-hours return option: we can accommodate various situations. Does one member of your party want to extend their bike rental? Or is your group just biked out and want to give their legs a rest? Just give us a call, and we can make this adjustment for you, or we can settle up when you ride back into the shop.
We offer delivery
Want to avoid downtown? We also offer delivery and pick up service for any of our conventional rentals for periods of 48 hours or more (DOES NOT INCLUDE E-BIKES, WHICH MUST BE PICKED UP IN STORE). In order to take advantage of this option, we must schedule delivery and pickups in advance, especially in the peak summer season.

After hours returns
You can return your bikes before we open or after we've closed by wheeling them behind our building to our private parking lot. Just lock your bikes to our bike rack and put your keys through the mail slot in the back door and we'll take care of the rest.
