Bike Rental FAQ (What You Need to Know!)   

We can’t say it enough, Sedona, Arizona is one of the best places on earth to ride a mountain bike! We are happy you will be riding with us, and you will be too! Showing up prepared will make the rental process easy and fun. Check out some common FAQs that we hear:

Q: Does my bike rental include a helmet?

A: Yes! All rentals include helmets. We provide entry-level helmets such as the Bontrager Solstice or similar. Helmets are not required, but we encourage you to wear one whenever on a bike.

Q: Does my rental include flat or clipless pedals?

A: Yes! All rentals include pedals, and we have options for you to choose from! Feel free to bring your own as well, and we will install them.

Q: I need a backpack! Can you rent me one?

A: Yes! We have a limited supply of Osprey packs available. They are free of charge! You will need to supply your bladder or water bottles.

Q: Will my bike rental come with a flat kit?

A: Yes! Every rental bike includes a flat kit. Kits include at least: Tube(s), entry-level pump, entry-level multi-tool, tire levers. Flat kits are not attached to the bikes. You will need to carry them.

Q: Do you rent car racks?  Can I reserve one?

A: Car racks are available for rent at $10 per day. Racks are available in-store only. We do not book them in advance (Don't worry, we have plenty!) When picking up your rental car, be aware of SUVs with rear plastic spoilers as they are very flimsy and will not hold three full suspension bikes safely.

Q: Do you rent truck tailgate pads? Can I reserve one?

A: Truck tailgate pads are FREE! We encourage you to rent a truck vs. a regular car. If needing a rental vehicle, trucks are the way to go! A mid-size truck (F150) will hold four people and four bikes easily! Easy for you, us, and our bikes!  Like our car racks,  tailgate pads are not available to reserve in advance.
