Montreal Bike Rentals

How to Explore Montreal One Cycle at a Time

By

Montreal bike rentals come in more than one shape and size. BIXI appears to be getting all the glory, but user beware. BIXI is ideal for getting from Point A to Point B when you know the city well, but a traveller intent on meandering through Montreal at his or her own pace would be well-advised to consider opting for one of the flat fee Montreal bike rental services listed below, which all offer a variety of rental plans, from hourly to monthly. You'll know exactly what you're paying for as well as when and where to bring the bike. No surprises credit card charges, just hours, or days, or weeks, of affordable pedaling. By the way, for those new to the city, here's a nifty primer to some of my favorite Montreal parks to cycle to or cycle through.

Note that rental prices may change without notice.

1. Ça Roule Montréal

Rates include helmet, lock, bike trail map and repair kit, with 24-hour rentals starting at $35. Great starting point for people looking to explore Old Montreal, the Old Port and Parc Jean-Drapeau. At 27 de la Commune Est in Old Montreal (map).

2. La Bicyclette JR

Rates include lock and helmet, with 24-hour rentals starting at $24. Weekly rentals start at $65. Handy location for people interested in touring/moving around the Mile End, Mount Royal and the Plateau. At 2012 Rachel on the Plateau (map).

3. My Bicyclette Montreal

Rates include taxes as well as helmet, map and “friendly route suggestions,” with 24-hour rentals starting at $40. Great choice for nature lovers interested in perusing Montreal's waterside. At 2985 C St. Patrick near Atwater Market and the Lachine Canal (map).

4. Dyad Cycles

Rather explore Montreal by electric scooter? Not a problem. And no driver's license required according to Dyad, with 24-hour rentals starting at $55. At 80 Prince Arthur Est on the Plateau (map).
