Biking is the best way to get around the city. It was really easy to rent and return the bikes. The staff was helpful. Basic bikes, nothing fancy. I would definitely rent from them again.

Rented bikes as a change from walking and couldn’t recommend Black-Bikes enough. Easy process, good price and we even got to keep the bikes longer with no added hassle.

Good place for bike rental. The staff was very friendly and gave a lot of information and instructions to ride across the city. The bikes were really good. I recommend this place.
