“Not a fan”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

Was not at all happy. The seats were small and uncomfortable. The minimum is two hours, which might have been okay but after 10 minutes all three in my party were uncomfortable. We ended up taking the bikes up to Fisherman's wharf, about a ten minute ride, walked around and returned.

“Good Peddling!”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

Great young guys here in newly established kiosk next to Clementine Hotel on Cannery Row. Ask them to match prices of the competition ($8 an hour, $27 for four hours) which is a bit cheaper than theirs ($9 an hour; $36 for four hours). Good bikes, helmets and locks. Nice area for a long ride along ocean shore to 17 mile drive.

“Good place to rent bikes for 17 mile road”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

They operate out of a small kiosk vs. large storefront for the other bicycle rental company. We rented the motorized bikes which provide a nice pedal assist up hills. We still got a workout, but were able to cover a much longer distance. The staff was helpful and well informed. A bike is a great way to get a feel for the scenery.

“LEFT STRANDED IN THE FOREST!”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

My bike overheated and died on me in the middle of the forest, not only did we have to hitch hike for a ride back, but the guy actually blamed me for killing the battery when it turned out that the bike over heated. On top of that the Manager is charging us for a broken screw that we didn't cause and also is charging us for being late even though it was their fault because the bike broke down on us. Very shady company, I would recommend you stay far away!

“Horrible service and management.”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

This is the worst bike rental shop I have ever been to. They rented us a defective bike that could have caused a serious injury. After 5 minutes of riding on the bad bike, we noticed that it was not working properly. We brought the bike back to exchange it with a different one. At first they apologized for the defective bike, then, they decided to claim that WE caused the damage to the bike and that we would need to pay for it. The management team is very shady here and out to get money from customers any way that they can. They wanted to charge our credit card for the repair that needed to be done on a bike which was defective in the first place. DO NOT GO HERE.
