The riding position is comfortable and semi-upright. These are the rental bikes we recommend and supply for most
riders. Children's sizes are also available. We use Trek 7.4fx/7.5fx or equivalent. Cost $30/day; $145/week. Bikes come equipped with water bottle, odometer, rear rack, trunk bag, high visibility vest, lock, pump, patch kit, and spare inner tube.
Equipped with smooth road tires, which makes them much
easier to propel down paved or gravel roads, these mountain bike rentals are
provided instead of hybrids when the surfaces are rougher,
such as in Mexico and Costa Rica. We usually use Trek 6700 or
equivalent. Cost in Canada is $45/day; $195/week.
|Aluminum or Carbon Road Bikes:
Racing-style bicycles, with dropped handlebars and brake lever shifters, these agile bikes have narrow tires,
and are a delight for those who like riding a light, fast bike. We use Trek road bikes with Shimano 105 shifters, and triple
or compact cranks. Cost in Canada is $55/day; $265/week. Full carbon frame bikes are also available for $75/day; $395/week.
Note that instead of a rear rack and trunk bag, road bikes have a saddlle bag, holding a high visibility vest, pump, lock, patch kit, and spare inner tube.
Two water bottle cages can be supplied on request.
Electric Assist Bikes:
E-bikes (electric pedal-assist, high capacity; range 130km) are now available in Eastern Canada and in some parts of Europe (please call for details). Cost in Canada is $75/day; $395/ week. These are long-range, high performance bikes. Please be aware that performance problems can arise while on the road, especially in wet weather.
These tandem bicycle rentals are available in limited quantities in Atlantic Canada only. Please ask about their suitability on your preferred adventure. Tandem bikes can sometimes be shipped to other locations, in which case extra shipping charges may apply. Provided bike may vary from picture. Trek T1000 in Canada $55/day; $295/week.
Child Trailers and Trailer Bikes:
Child Trailers: We use really cool Burley D'Lite bicycle trailers, with
a total weight of 17 lbs, and a towing capacity of 100lbs.
They are suitable for one or two children, and have
storage pockets, rain covers, and sunscreens. Please
reserve well in advance. Cost in Canada $25/day; $15 if associated with adult rentals.
Trailer Bikes: Attach one to the back of any adult's bike to turn it
into a tandem suitable for children up to 4’10”
tall. They can assist you by pedalling, or can simply
freewheel as you do all the work. They have no directional
or braking control. Cost in Canada $22/day; $15 if associated with adult rentals.
Cargo trailers are also available: $50/week.
