The guys have a wonderful sense of humor, take their time fitting you to the bike, allow cycle returns "when you're done having fun," and are very reasonably priced.

We rented two adult bikes, two young children's bikes that were tagsalongs and a car rack. From start to finish the people at the shop were helpful. The cost was much cheaper compared to Bar Harbor. Would return in an instant!
