The Complete Guide to Bike Rentals and Shops in Ontario

Find a bike rental near you. • Credit: Ontario Tourism

It's fun to explore by bike

Take your own or rent a bike for an amazing cycling adventure. Get great service and local knowledge at these friendly bike shops.



The incredible diversity of bike rides on cycling routes and trails in Ontario satisfies cyclists of every persuasion—from winter fat biking to summer cycle touring, craggy singletrack to silky pavement. E-bicycles (e-bikes) are becoming a hot trend. Take your own bike, get an e-bike or bike rental or take a guided tour. It’s fun to explore Ontario by bike.

ONTARIO BIKE LAWS AND SAFE CYCLING 

Before riding, it’s important to understand the rules of the road and practise proper safety and handling techniques. Get Ontario’s Guide to Safe Cycling.

Cyclists in Ontario will need to have a few pieces of mandatory safety equipment—always check with the bike shop that your rental includes these items, or bring your own:

  • Every cyclist under the age of 18 must wear an approved bicycle helmet. Many mountain bike trail centres require riders of all ages to wear a helmet.
  • From a half-hour before sunset until a half-hour after sunrise, cyclists need to improve their visibility with a white or amber front light and a red light or reflector on the rear of the bike.
  • E-bike laws require all e-bike operators to be 16 years of age or older and all must wear an approved bicycle or motorcycle helmet.

Before riding, learn about Ontario’s bike laws.

Additionally, many shops will include a bike lock with rental, and some may be able to offer other handy accessories upon request, such as a bike basket or panniers, water bottle cage, and clipless pedals.

BIKE RENTALS, SHOPS AND TOURS

Whether you are new to riding, visiting a new area, or in the market for a new bike, hundreds of local cycle shops province-wide can sell or rent you the right frame to match your appetite.

They also provide exceptional repair service and local knowledge on the best places to ride. Ontario By Bike has a helpful map showing bike shops and/or rental locations across Ontario.

Guided tours and events are a fun, social way to explore new areas and meet people with a shared interest. Take your own bike or rent one near by.

AVERAGE BIKE RENTAL RATES 

Rental rates average between $30 and $45 per day (or $15 to $30 for two to four hours) for a city cruiser, gravel or fat bike. Expect to pay between $50 and $100 per day for a top-of-the-line mountain, road or electric pedal-assist bike. Most outfitters offer reduced daily rates for weekend and week-long rentals. Remember that rates will also vary with geographic location.

WHERE ARE THE BEST BIKE RENTALS and SHOPS NEAR ME?

Ontario has incredible bike rides and tours on roads and bike paths for cyclists of all abiliites and ages. For those who like to carve up a mountain bike trail, there are lots of easy to extreme places to ride. Take your own bike or rent one locally.
