Summer & "Off-Season" Bicycle Rentals

Many visitors are now discovering what we locals have known for a long time ... that Cape Cod is a wonderful place for biking, year round.

I suspect that's why more and more bike shops are staying open year round. Others are going to an "extended season", meaning they open earlier in the spring, and stay open longer in autumn, if the weather is nice.

The bottom line is:

If you're going to be here before Memorial Day (late May) or after Labor Day (early September), it's a good idea to call ahead to be sure that your preferred rental shop will be open!

Are Reservations Required?

Not necessarily. However ...

If you'll be here during a peak vacation month (July or August), you might want to make your bicycle rental reservation in advance, just to be sure you won't be disappointed.

That's especially true if you'll be staying in a very two-wheel oriented town like Provincetown, where it seems that 99% of the population prefers pedaling over searching (and paying) for a parking spot.

Rental Rates

Rentals generally run from about $10-$12 per hour and up for a basic, no-frills model.

Half-day, full day, multi-day and weekly rentals are also available at most cycle shops.
