Credit card and a government issued photo ID (Driver's Licence, Passport, ID Card) or cash deposits of $50/bike with a valid government issued photo ID. A rental waiver will also need to be completed in advance or at time of rental. Higher performance bikes such as road bikes and E-Bikes are subject to credit card pre-authorizations.
All rentals have a 1 hour minimum. Rental time is prorated and calculated in 15 minute increments.It is NOT possible to pay for a rental in advance, as we calculate the rental time upon return of the bike(s). We accept all forms of major credit cards, Interac, and cash.
During peak summer months (May-August), we highly suggest reserving as far in advance as possible to ensure the number of bikes, sizes and styles requested are available for your party. If you walk-in store without a reservation we will do our best to fit you on an appropriate sized bike and style when you arrive.
Reservations for our E-Bikes, Road Bikes, or for groups of 10+ should be made in advance due to limited availability. Reservations can be made by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our online booking system. We request that groups of 10+ call at least 24 hours in advance to confirm the booking and total number of bikes on the reservation.
It is the law to wear a bike helmet in Vancouver. Bike helmets and locks are included with your rental free of charge. At English Bay Bike Rentals our bike helmets are disinfected after every use.
Rental bikes must be returned by closing time unless a 24 hour or multiple day rental has been agreed upon. Rental returns are NOT possible after hours. Any rental bikes kept after hours must be returned the following morning. If you have rented a bike and would like to keep it for longer just give us a call to confirm that we have availability to extend your rental.
If you are staying in the downtown area we suggest walking.
In many cases it will be a nice stroll down Davie St, Robson St or Denman St, all of which are better explored by foot than bike.
If you are coming from further away we are located near the English Bay stops for busses 5, 6, and 23.
