  • If you go over your hour they figure it out by mins not adding another hour to your bill! They helped our friend to get used to her bike too! We had a blast on the bikes! A must do when on the island! 
  • Amazing experience! Stepped off ferry and straight to bike shop for rentals. Quickly set up with women and men bikes, each with tag-alongs for our kids (5 and 7). Enjoyed our perimeter ride! With coup...  read more »
  • We had a great time riding bikes around the island. The perimeter tour lets you stop and enjoy the views of the lake as well as hike up to beautiful areas on the island. While parts were crowded it wa...  read more »
  • Bikes were good quality but the carrier I rented was ripped when I got it. Most of the carriers showed wear and tear so I didn't think anything of it. I returned an hour later and they charged me $200 to replace. I explained the situation to the owner and he said angrily that there's no way that the rip was there. He stated that he had had a problem yesterday, but today was a different story. Not sure what changed in 1 day. 0 customer service or flexibility. DO NOT RENT HERE.
  • I literally don't want to give them a star at all. Worst experience and the sad part is this is the one of the first bike shops people see when they get off the ferries, when there are other rental places with really helpful and knowledgeable employees. I encourage you to read below and use any other rental place, expect this one. Myself, husband and two kids brought our bikes over from the main land, howevet, my five year old got tired very quickly, so we stopped here to rent a carrier to attach to my husbands bike. When I first walked up to the place both employees looked over at me and went back to talking to each other. I waitem till they looked back over at me and neither said anything, so I had to just go ahead and ask for the rental to which I was informed that they could attach the carrier to my husbands bike. After we brought all four of our bikes over to wait for them to attach, the guy tells us it won't work and they have nothing else for us to rent. The owner then came over to rudely confirm that what the other guy said was correct. So I was trying to get my kids turned around and check with another place, before I could even get my kids back on their bikes the owner was rudely telling me to get out of the way. As we were leaving we passed by another one of his employees who was helping someone tighten a loose bolt on his bike and the owner came over yelling at the other customer saying this was not a repair shop and leave. I said to the owner that he was rude and he proceeded to yell back at me again. BEWARE!!! Went down to the Bike Barn and the guys there were great and helped us get a carrier for our daughter and enjoy the rest of our day.
  • I am a rather large individual 6'5", 300lbs, but they found a bike that worked for someone of my size. Very fast service, a bottle of water included. I was worried about renting a bike, and this couldn't have been any easier.
  • didn't want to rent but had to when my bike had a major issue. They rented me a bike 30 mins before they even opened and fixed my bike while we had a early morning ride. Excellent place. Super busy there when I returned it so be prepared to wait a little while in the busy season.
  • Had to wait 10 minutes for a bike. My bike wasn't set up properly and wouldn't shift into high or low gear. Returned the bike for a new one. Extra 10 minutes wasted. Bike rims were not true. My wife's bike had a mangled basket. Returned the bikes 1.25 hours later after riding around the island. Had to wait 5 minutes to return it. All the time my wife had to wait as well. So they credited me 25 minutes total, not for both bikes, but only for one. When I complained the staff guy copped a major attitude and angrily said "It's only $1. If it means so much to you I'll give you back $1." I told him if it was only the dollar that mattered I would have gone with the cheaper bike rentals down the street. They're a dollar cheaper. In actuality he should have refunded me $4 for 25 minutes. When I questioned his attitude he claimed he didn't have one. I will never rent from this company again.
