Bike Rental

Hub City Cycles is based in the heart of downtown in the China Steps, a short walk from the Gabriola and Protection Island Ferry, cruise ship terminal, and a short drive from Departure Bay and Duke Point Ferry.  Its easy to get to us from wherever you are coming from. The shop is across the street from the casino tucked in behind Black & Blue Tattoo and InPrint.

Taking in Nanaimo by bike is a great way to see the city and explore its outer reaches. Our modern fleet of rental bikes are perfectly suited for riding around town or going a bit off the beaten path such as on trails of Newcastle Island Provincial Park. The E&N Rail Trail and the Parkway Trail are easy to ride routes that access Nanaimo from North to South tip. The bikes are available in a variety of sizes including easy to mount, step-through models.

Included with the rental of the bike is a helmet, lock, spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, pump, multitool and map of Nanaimo bike routes. We have both comfortable city cruisers and tough mountain bikes available for rent.

To expedite the renting process when you arrive at the shop to pick up your bike, you can download, print and fill out our waiver form.
