There are so many different styles of bikes for rent to choose from: comfy hybrid bikes, beautiful tandem bikes, tough mountain bikes, kickin' double suspension bikes, zippy road bikes, laid-back recumbent bikes (including TerraTrike recumbent tricycles!), fun trail-a-bikes, happy baby trailers and kids bikes, too!

At the Bloomfield Bicycle Company you can also rent everything else bike-wise you might want for a County adventure: racks and panniers, spare parts and anything else you can imagine. Rental bikes themselves can be loaded with any number of extra rental accessories: mirrors, handlebar bags, rack trunks, bells, honka hooter horns, cycling computers, bar ends and more! We don't do GPS, heart-reate monitors or Watt meters. (yet)

One thing we DO NOT RENT: car racks. We do deliver and pick-up rentals anywhere in Prince Edward County instead. Give us a call so we can make special arrangements for you. Call us with any special concerns you have,and we'd be happy to help! Heck, just call!

We custom fit every rental bike to its rider. We understand the importance of proper fit for both the happiness and efficiency of your bike riding. Not only do we adjust seat at the right height but we also are prepared to swap stems and saddles until you feel comfortable. Part of being comfortable is being confident that you know how all the gears and brakes and features of your rental bike work: so we spend some time going over all that before you roll away. We also install whatever style of pedals you need: flats, toe-clips or one of many varieties of clipless pedals.

Each rental bike is equipped with a water bottle cage. We provide a 21 ounce bottle, that's your to keep, filled with cool, clear, filtered water. We can always pop another bottle cage on if you need it, as well. Water is just as important as a functioning bike for an enjoyable day!

We'll go over your map with you before you take off on your adventure and highlight a good route so you won't get lost later. We're full of great local info as well, and part of our mission is to help folks plan a fabulously perfect, custom adventure. Would you like to see museums? Beaches? Vistas? Wineries? Primo restaurants? Good photo routes? Shady roads vs sunshiney shorelines? We've got all the local knowledge to help plan your perfect time.

We deliver and pick-up rental bikes anywhere within Prince Edward County. We deliver at 9:30am and pickup at or after 6pm. We do not deliver for half days. Your bikes, helmets and any other gear you need will arrive and be fitted to you on the spot. You must be there to receive the bikes, but you can lock them up whenever you are done and we will come pick them up after 6PM.

We need at least 24 hours notice to do bicycle deliveries.
FEES for Delivery: $10 first bike, $5 each subsequent bike to a max of $50.
FEES for Pick-up: $5 each bike to a max of $50.

We provide an emergency rescue vehicle. If you should have troubles while you are out adventuring on your rented bicycle, or while you are on a Bloomfield Bicycle Company tour, or even just while you're in the County for a day of cycling: we're there for you. Just give us a call and we'll arrive where you are in a little while. We'll fix you on the spot if we can; and if not, we'll bring you back to the shop (or to your car, or campsite, or wherever your adventure is taking you next).

Don't worry if your cell phone isn't working ... the County is pretty friendly. Stop at the closest house and ask them if they would please give the bike shop a call (613-393-1060) and we'll be right along.

please read before booking!

We accept cancellations up to 24 hours in advance with no penalty or charges. Cancellations made within 24 hours may be charged $15 administration fee for each bike. No-shows will be charged for half a day rental, and the bikes will be returned to the available fleet.

If you make bike reservations and you do not arrive or call to cancel, we will hold the bikes for half a day ('cuz sometimes people are late) and then, if you still do not arrive, we will charge your credit card $25 for each bike reserved and release the bikes back to the rental fleet.

Reservations are not REQUIRED for rentals, but please be aware that we have run out of rental bikes on long weekends and many weekends in July and August. Spur of the moment walk-ins are encouraged and heralded! If you have specific dates, or specific bikes that you really want, then we STRONGLY recommend that you make reservations early to avoid disappointment. Delivery of bicycles must be arranged at least 24 hours in advance. We do not take reservations for half day rentals, nor do we deliver half day rentals.

We do not take reservations for half day rentals. We are happy to take reservations for bike rentals as far in advance as you would like to make them.

SINGLE BIKES include recumbents and recumbent trikes but not tandems ...For our rental purposes a single bike is ANY bike that is not a tandem. That means hybrids, mountainbikes, front suspended rigid mountainbikes, double suspension mountainbikes, zoomy road bikes, touring bikes, recumbents and any other wacky things we can find to rent out to happy cycling folk

rental durations:

At the BBC we rent bikes in half day increments.
A morning half day begins when we open and ends at 2pm.
An afternoon half day begins at 2pm and ends when we close at 6pm.
We do have some flexibility on this but arrangements must be made in advance. And we have virtually no flexibility on Saturdays in July and August.

A full day rental begins when we open and ends when we close: a full day rental is NOT 24 HOURS.

Deposits are required. Visa, AMEX & MC accepted.
