RentaBikeNow.com has launched North America's only coast-to-coast bike rental service that provides bikes, accessories and tours so travelers can easily ride bikes everywhere!
Through this service, cyclists across the globe can easily reserve quality bikes online from hundreds of participating bike shops before they travel throughout the US and Canada (currently available in Vancouver and Ottawa). By selecting a destination, travel dates and type of bike, travelers can search among available bikes and reserve the specific model that suits their size and riding style. Bikes are presented with specs, photos, pricing and shop hours to help travelers find the perfect bike and most convenient bike shop.
RentaBikeNow.com utilizes Independent Bicycle Dealers to offer the largest fleet of rental bikes and offers every size, shape and flavor including comfort bikes, road bikes, mountain bikes, kid's bikes, recumbents and more. And if you want to add accessories like a kid's trailer or want to go on a tour - those are available from select locations as well.
Reservations are as easy as booking a hotel or rental car - a secured checkout utilizes PayPal and major credit cards to collect a refundable reservation deposit fee making the transaction as secure as it is easy. Consumers simply pay the balance due when picking up their bike. And through partne rships with major mapping sites, the customer is even provided good routes to ride on their printed confirmation so they can review and plan before they reach their destination.
“As the environment, gas prices and health awareness continue to make headlines, it's exciting to provide a service that addresses these critical issues,” said company President/Founder & Big Wheel George Gill. “Now, cycling is more available for enthusiasts and casual cyclists alike,” Gill added.
