We’re also the most experienced electric bike rental shop in Traverse City! In addition to our eBikes for sale, we always keep a large fleet of eBikes charged up as a dedicated rental fleet.

Electric Bike Rentals

Renting an e-bike is a perfect way to experience exhilarating fun that only an electric bike can bring. Start right out our back door on the TART trail and try not to smile, trust us... it's almost impossible.

Mountain Bike Rentals

Hit the trails on a Trek or a Cannondale mountain bike from Brick Wheels, and find out why these two industry leaders are the choice of cyclists everywhere. We have the Trek Stache, Trek Top Fuel and Cannondale Trail to choose from to make your Traverse City bike rental a success. 

Hybrid Bike Rentals

Hybrid bikes offer the comfort of a city bike paired with the efficiency of a road bike. Our Hybrid bike rental fleet is highlighted by the Trek FX, which is sure to make any Traverse City bike rental a perfect vacation memory. 

Fat Bike Rentals

Fat bikes provide an uber smooth ride and are very versatile in the Traverse City climate and trail conditions. The wide tires float over sandy trails or cut through snow covered paths with ease. Our favorite fat bike rental is the Trek Farley, which is amazingly light and simple to ride for any skill level. 


Kids Bike Rentals

Just like our adult rentals, our children's bike rental fleet are all from top brands like Trek, Haro, and Cannondale. Try a 16” single speed bike for a new rider, or a  20” or  24” children mountain bike with full gearing and hand brakes for kids that are ready to hit the trail.
