There is no better way to explore New York City than by bike! Whether you're looking to ride leisurely up the Westside Highway or gearing up for a long ride, we have a bike that will fit your needs. If you're looking to reserve a bike for the Five Boro Bike Tour, please see our road and hybrid rental pages. For the NYC Tri, see our rental/shipping page.
We will install your pedals or provide flat pedals. Rental helmets are provided at no extra charge.
Best for casual, upright riding. A great way to see the city and get some exercise.
To rent a bike lock, add $20.
Road bikes (aluminum): $100/day
Best for more recreational riding. A great way to explore the city's greenways, Central Park, and popular 9W rides.
Road bikes (carbon): $150/day
A lighter, stiffer option than our aluminum rentals, carbon road bikes are best for longer distances and races. Ask us to share some of our favorite training routes if you're looking to get out of the city and climb.
Please note that bikes are available on a first come, first served basis. To inquire about availability or reserve a bike, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Every rider will need to sign a waiver for all rentals, acknowledging that you are responsible for any theft or damages to the bike. Due to rental policy, all renters will be charged for the bike in full, and we will refund the difference of the bike rental at the end of the day. (For example, pay $400 up front and upon return we will refund to you so the final charge is $50.)
*Bikes must be returned by closing time the next day. If bike is returned before closing on the day of the rental, cost is only $35.
We frequently work with stylists, photographers, event coordinators, producers, journalists, and others to provide rental bikes for temporary use. We do require a deposit and waiver form. Please contact us by phone and a store manager will help arrange the details for your next event.
