Bike Rentals at BratBike

We rent bikes for day tripping around the Brattleboro area of southeastern Vermont. If you're staying in the area, or just got off the train (Amtrak's Vermonter), you can rent one of our "dirt road tourers" to see our beautiful region on two wheels. There are some rules:

  • We rent hybrids. These are 21-speeds with 38-42mm tires on either 700c or 26" wheels (no childrens' bikes). They are just the thing for exploring on dirt or paved roads in and around Brattleboro. We don't rent trail bikes (try the ski areas) and we don't rent road bikes, for which there are so many fit and pedal compatibility issues.
  • We require a credit card imprint for a security deposit. We accept VISA and MasterCard. No charges are made to your account until you pick up the rental at Brattleboro Bicycle Shop. In the event of damage to our equipment, we reserve the right to bill the repair or replacement charges (as determined by us) to your credit card account.
  • We charge $25/day, $125/7 days, morning to morning or afternoon to afternoon. There is no half day rate.
  • The bikes have one bottle cage. We do not rent panniers, racks, or other touring equipment, and we don't rent car racks.
  • Pedals: you can choose either plain, old, flat pedals or toe clips and straps. People sometimes bring their own click-in pedals and we install them on the rental bike.
  • Excellent county maps are available for free from the Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce office right across the street from us. We can mark one of these with suggested routes for you, if you like.
  • We do not provide road service. The bikes are checked out before and after each rental, so we are sure the brakes, gears, and wheels are properly adjusted and lubricated...but things happen! Make plans for what you'll do if you get a flat.
  • We have a small rental fleet, so it's best to plan ahead.
  • NOTE: Our bikes have a safe limit of a 250 lb rider.
