    I would like to know how much it would cost to rent 2 bikes for 5 days. Thank you

  2. admin says:

    Hi Amy! Two bikes for five days will be $100 plus tax. I would also recommend a bike lock for $1 a day if you don’t have your own. Hope to see you soon!

  3. Birgit says:

    Hi, do you rent bike trailors or bike seats for kids? We also have a cycling five-year- old. Would you have a bike for her? Thanks.

  4. admin says:

    Hello! We have Kiddie Karts for children up to 50 lbs and child seats for children up to 25 lbs. We have both 20″ and 24″ beach cruisers for children. If they are a little too large, you could look into a Tag-A-Long, which would definitely be small enough and allow her to peddle, but might be not quite as exciting as riding her own bike.

  5. Elena Knickman says:

    Hi. Just wanted to verify whether you are open and renting bikes this coming Friday the 29th of March. Thanks!

  6. Cynthia says:

    We will be open & renting! The weather is supposed to be beautiful this weekend.

  7. Amy says:

    Hey, a group of friends and I are planning to come down for July 4th weekend. We are 6 people who will probably want to rent for 3-5 days. Is there any way to reserve bikes in advance? Do you normally sell out on peak weekends, etc?

  8. Cynthia says:

    Hi Amy,

    We normally only run out of bikes on weekend mornings with good biking weather. If you’re looking at getting them for several days, I would recommend stopping by in the evening–you should have a good selection to choose from then.

    See you soon!

  9. Lisa says:

    Hi…we – three adults – will be there June 8…morning to 9 and need bikes for 24 hrs. Do you reserve? Thanks Lisa

  10. Judy says:

    Good Morning,

    Do you have a suitable bike for my husband? He is 6’2″ and 230 pounds.


  11. Cynthia says:

    Yes! We have several large-frame bicycles available that should accommodate anyone up to 6’5″

    Hope to see you soon.

  12. Pam says:

    We are coming this coming weekend (July 12- July 19) we would need 4 bikes for 5 days. Can we reserve ahead of time or stop in on Friday when we get there? Thank you.

  13. Cynthia says:

    Hi Pam! We do not take reservations so we will see you on Friday!

  14. Brenda says:

    Hi, Do you deliver bikes and if you do can you deliver at assateigue island for a day of riding?

  15. Cynthia says:

    Hi Brenda,

    Unfortunately, we only deliver for large school and church groups; however, we are located right at the entrance to Assateague so you only need to ride/walk along the road for about 1/8 of a mile before reaching a dedicated bicycle path.

  16. Jennie Austin says:

    Hi There,

    A girlfriend and I are planning on being there on Sept. 13th to rent bike for the day. Do you also rent baskets or some kind of carrying platform for the backs to carry beach supplies?

    Thank You,

    Jennie Austin

  17. Cynthia says:

    Hi Jennie! We have baskets for $1 a day and we also rent carts to pull behind the bikes for $3/hour or $15/day. See you in September!

  18. Jason Kelly says:

    Do your bikes have racks or bags suitable for carrying small gear to the beach?

  19. Cynthia says:

    The bikes do not have racks or bags, but they do have baskets. You might want to rent a cart if you have more than will fit in a backpack!

  20. Cheryl says:

    Hi, do you have scooter rentals?

  21. Cynthia says:

    No scooters here– pedal power only! You might try Scooter Express, down Maddox next to the bank. It doesn’t look like they have a website, but they seem reputable and I have not heard any complaints.

  22. Renee Diethorn says:

    We will be down the Tuesday after labor day, can’t wait! Are the adult tricycle harder to ride the the cruisers? We will be using them for the wildlife loop.

  23. Cynthia says:

    The tricycle (we have one right now) is significantly heavier than the regular bikes; consequently, it takes more effort to get it going and keep it moving. It is not difficult to steer or brake.

  24. Soledad says:

    Hi would like to know if is possible to rent two bikes for 3 days Thanksgiving 2013?
    Thank you

  25. Cynthia says:

    Sure! If the shop is closed up, just head next door to the Refuge Inn and they can rent you a bike there.

  26. Soledad says:

    Thank you very much we will be there !!

  27. jessica says:

    Is there an age/weight limit for the kiddie cart? My son is 4yrs-34lbs. Thanks!

  28. Cynthia says:

    Your son will be fine! Suggested weight limit on the carts is 50 lbs.

  29. Carol says:

    Do you rent bikes all year?
    Expect to visit Feb 18th for the day. If it is a semi warm day I may want to rent a bike.

  30. Cynthia says:

    Yes. Stop by the front desk of the Refuge Inn to sign one out!

  31. Maria says:

    Do you have a two-seater with four wheels?

  32. Cynthia says:

    Hi Maria,

    We do not carry those types of bicycles. Many customers report that they are very difficult to ride over the bridge because the frame iW
    is so heavy. We do however have traditional tandems– bicycles built for two.

  33. Toni says:

    Do you offer helmets with the bike rentals? If so, how much?

  34. Cynthia says:

    Hi Toni, Helmets are available for $1 per day with a bike rental.

  35. Debra says:

    Good morning! We are looing forward to staying with you over the Memorial Day weekend. If we want to do a three day rental for 4 people, do we just see you on Thursday night/Friday morning and then keep the bikes with us through our stay? I am correct that reservations are not taken?

  36. Cynthia says:

    Correct on all counts! We also rent bike locks for a dollar a day. If you are staying downstairs at the Refuge, you are welcome to keep your bicycles on your patio. We also have bike racks available for you near the parking lot.

  37. Srividya says:


    I have a 2.9 yrs daughter. Do we have a kids bike for 2+ years ? or should she be only in child seat ?

  38. Cynthia says:

    hello! At that age, I would recommend that she ride in a kiddie cart.

  39. Jeannie says:

    Hello Bike Depot
    Is it possible to attach a kiddie cart to an adult tricycle? It would be a great way to travel with some of my photo gear. Is your company located on the grounds of the motel called The Refuge? I am mildly, temporarily handicapped. If I get stuck on or near the beach, is there a number I can call to have someone help me out?

  40. Cynthia says:

    Hello! Unfortunately, we cannot attach a cart to an adult tricycle. It does have a large basket on the back, so you may be able to put your equipment there. We are owned by and located at the Refuge Inn. We do not have the staff to support distress calls–but there are a number of Park Rangers on Assateague who may be available. I would strongly advise against riding the tricycle on sand as it is extremely heavy and will get stuck! It does just fine on the paved talks on Assateague. Sorry I have so many “no” answers for you, but we hope to see you soon!

  41. Jill says:

    Do you need a credit card to rent bikes for 5 days?

  42. Cynthia says:

    You can leave a credit card or drivers license with us!

  43. […] You can drive onto Assateague Island, but there is an $8 fee per car to park. I would highly recommend renting bikes and riding over to the island because it is free to get on the island without a car! We rented bikes from the closest shop to the bridge, โ€œThe Bike Depot.โ€ […]

  44. joanne meindl says:

    do you rent any golf carts. Coming next week and both of us have bad knees so bikes won’t work.

  45. Cynthia says:

    Hello! We are pedal power only– nothing motorized.

  46. Brandon says:

    Is there a parking lot we can leave our vehicle while cruising the island on one of your bikes?

  47. Sheila says:

    Hi…. do we need to book in advance? We’d probably like 4 bikes from morning of 1st Aug to afternoon of 3rd Aug or morning of 4th Aug.

    Should we bring our own helmets? Anything else?

  48. Cynthia says:

    Hello! We don’t take any reservations, but if we’re going to run out of bikes, it usually happens between 9am and 12pm, so evenings are the best time to pick up for a multi-day rental. We rent helmets for $1 but your own may be more comfortable! Bring bug spray! See you soon.

  49. April says:

    If we wanted to do a 2 day rental, what do we do with them in the evening if staying at a hotel? Return and pick back up the next morning? How does that work if we wanted to have the bikes rented and available for 8:00 am, but staying in a hotel?

  50. Cynthia says:

    You could easily rent them for two days– just rent a lock for $1 and lock them up in the bike racks BEHIND our shop, adjacent to the Refuge Inn parking lot. They’ll be there whenever you need them! Just return them to the shop when you’re done.

  51. Sherron says:

    Our son is 3.5 and almost 45lbs. Is a bike seat or kiddie cart better for his size. I know we can’t reserve in advance but what are the chances either will be available on weekend of August 26?

  52. Cynthia says:

    He’ll definitely need the kiddie cart! A lot depends on the weather, but we almost always have both available in the evenings for a 24-hour rental.

  53. T says:

    We are coming down for the week and not arriving until Monday afternoon. We were planning on renting bikes, but it says you only rent bikes out on weekends? Is this true?

  54. Cynthia says:

    We rent bikes year-round every day except Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We’re open 8am-8pm during the summer months. We are more likely to run out of bikes on the weekends or on days when the weather is drop dead gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜‰

  55. M says:

    What are the hours for renting on Friday, Aug 1?
    Is there parking at your shop where we can leave the bikes?

  56. Cynthia says:

    September 1 hours are 8am-8pm, and you can absolutely leave your car parked here– there are parking lots on both sides of the shop.

  57. John says:

    Hi, I’m bringing my own seat. Will you install it on a rental?

  58. Cynthia says:

    Hi John,

    Our seat posts are not universally sized, so most personal seats do not fit without removing the seat from the post (which we can’t do for insurance reasons.)

  59. Rebecca says:

    Whatโ€™s the appropriate age to have child in the child seat or the kiddie cart ?

  60. Cynthia says:

    Hi Rebecca,

    The weight limit for the child seat is 25 lbs, and the child should be able to sit up independently. The weight limit for the kiddie kart is 80 lbs, and the child(ren) need to be able to sit up independently, without their heads sticking out above the safety bars. (My 4-year old fits just fine.)

  61. rafael says:

    Would we be able to ride the rental bikes to a place where we could see the wild horses?
    Thanks so much.

  62. Cynthia says:

    Absolutely! We’ll even give you a map.

  63. Amanda Collins says:

    What is the age/weight restrictions on the kiddie carts?

  64. Jo says:

    Is there a weight limit for your adult bikes?

  65. Cynthia says:

    The limit is 100lbs and there is a height limit rather than age limit on the cart– difficult to tell whether or not they will fit without being here.

  66. Cynthia says:

    Hello, The weight limit on our adult bicycles is 250lbs. However, we will take your word for it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  67. Simon says:

    Does the bike has brake? Don’t seem like it has in the picture.

  68. Cynthia says:

    The beach cruisers have coaster breaks. You just pedal backwards! Old School.

  69. Tina says:

    Can you tell me how far of a bike ride it is to the beach? Can my 5 year old do it from the Inn? Thanks

  70. Cynthia says:

    It’s about 3 miles to the beach. I’d recommend a tag-a-long so even if your five year old gets tired, they can just ride instead of helping pedal. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  71. Gloria says:

    Hi. Just wanted to verify whether you are open and renting bikes this coming Sunday the 28th of April. Thanks!

  72. Cynthia says:

    Yes, weather permitting! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  73. Katrina says:

    How much does it cost to rent a wagon to hook to the back of my bike?

The official bird of Chincoteague, the Mosquito, is a major consideration for outside activities on the islands.ย  Be prepared!

Chincoteague and Assateague have several excellent hiking & biking trails.

Can I rent a bicycle for a whole week?ย  What about 20 minutes?ย  Should I take bug spray?
