    Where to Rent a bike in/near Victoria

    I've called around several shops in Victoria and Duncan about renting a bike to ride Hartland, Maple Mountain, and/or Mt Tzouhalem while in Southern Vancouver Island next week. Apparently it's very common to rent road bikes and bike path hybrids.

    Can anyone suggest a good shop? I planned to get a solid trail/AM setup, more than XC, less than DH. Sound about right for these trails?

    Thanks for any help!

    Thanks Kevin! In fact I did end up with a Sight from Oak Bay. Strange that bike rentals in Victoria are actually pretty hard to find. Vancouver/Whistler/Pemberton seem to have many, many options.

    In any event, I'm stoked to hit some trails on Monday!

    Mountain biking isn't that big in Victoria and squamish/whistler/Pemberton are some of the best riding destinations on earth that's why lol. That being said hartland tzouhalem and maple mtn are rad

    Oak Bay Bikes turned out to be a winner. Helpful staff and a well setup/maintained bike.

    Maple Mountain (and the Maple Syrup trail) was awesome. Highly recommended.

    Glad to hear, Maple Syrup is one sweet trail.

    Just a FYI - Bear Mountain is now renting MTBs including kid's sizes.
    Safe riding,
