Notice: All rentals suspended until further notice due to COVID.
Are you just visiting or wanting to join friends that already ride bikes? Would you like to try a mountain bike, fat bike or e-bike before you buy? Do you have a friend that you’ve been trying to get out on a ride with you? There are a pile of reasons to rent a bike and we help make it easy. If you decide to purchase any rental items after rental we will put your first rental towards a purchase.
Mountain Bike Rental
Dundas area offers a range of trail networks such as Christie Lake, Iroquois Heights and Dundas Valley to explore on trail ready mountain bikes during the summer. We offer seasonal mountain bikes to match the riding conditions with hardtails during the summer and fall transitioning to fat bikes for the winter.
Everyone can ride e-bike as it makes hills feel flat and allows you to ride with all skill levels while not running out of energy. With up to 120km range you can explore Hamilton and surrounding area quickly and easily. Helmets are required with all rentals and can be provided if needed.
The Townie’s Flat Foot Technology frame combined with a lower centre of gravity and 26” tires, provide an upright and comfortable ride. Add fenders to keep you clean, LED lighting to keep you safe and a rear rack to carry everything you need. It’s impossible not to smile while riding a Townie Go!
Freewheel supports local and is happy to suggest to anyone visiting the area as well as locals to try out an easy to rent local city bike, it’s also a great way to get out with friends and get into commuting.
