You can pick up at our HQ on Nova Scotia's South Shore, or we can deliver them to you in Halifax or anywhere else in Nova Scotia, either free or for a nominal fee.

Hybrid Bikes:

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.

Mountain Bikes:

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.
