Ask About Equipment Maintenance

When renting a mountain bike, you want to make sure it has been well maintained and cared for to ensure it is safe to ride. There’s nothing worse than a bike with mechanical issues, especially when you’re on vacation. So by renting from a reputable shop and inquiring about bike upkeep and maintenance, you are more likely to get a quality rental bike. Remember, our techs are here to help answer any questions you may have and are more than happy to share their extensive mountain bike knowledge with you.

Book in Advance

Denver mountain bike rentals are very popular and can get booked up quickly. If you want to ensure that you get a specific bike or that the shop has enough rental inventory for a certain day, booking in advance is highly recommended. This not only allows the shop to plan out their inventory but will give you peace of mind knowing you have a bike waiting for you. Bookings vary by shop but can typically be done either online or over the phone.

Check the Weather

Planning is key when it comes to Denver mountain bike rentals. Since the weather here in Colorado is fairy unpredictable, it’s best to plan in advance for both hot and cold temperatures just to be safe. Thunderstorms can pop up in the mountains in the afternoons, so getting out early will reduce your chances of getting wet. Don’t let the weather ruin your scheduled ride!
