New to the area, or just visiting and want to check out some local riding? Maybe you’re an experienced rider and want to demo a new bike? No matter what you’re looking for, we can offer you great options to get out and ride.
SBC rents high-quality full-suspension mountain bikes, performance hybrid bikes, and pedal-assist electric bikes. We also offer high-end Trek road bikes to demo upon your request.
If you’re interested in a new bike, we strongly encourage test rides so we can make sure you get just the right fit. Additionally, 100% of your rental fees can be applied to the purchase of a new bike of comparable value within 60 days of the rental.
SBC offers rental reservations to guarantee rental availability. Please call ahead to make a reservation so we can make sure to have the right bike for you ready to go. A credit card deposit is required for all reservations. Reservations can be cancelled with up to 24 hours notice at no cost. SBC will charge half of the rental fee for a no-show or for cancellation less than a day in advance. Our half-day rentals are available for hybrid bikes only.
All rentals include a helmet and flat kit if needed at no additional charge. When you come in to pick up your rental, we’ll spend time to set up and fit your rental for you personally.
*UPDATE 7/1/20: Due to industry wide inventory shortages SBC is not able to fulfill all Rental requests. Currently we are not offering Hybrid bikes for Rental. Road Bikes, E-Assists Bikes and Full-Suspension Mountain Bikes are based upon availability. Please give us a call for questions and availability*
Frequently Asked Questions About Rentals

SBC offers a number of high-quality trail maps of the local area. In addition, our staff are more than happy to share their knowledge and experience of local trails. We also can help you with a trail pass for the Massanutten Western Slopes trail system. See here for more trail info.
