Title: Great Tucson Bike Rental Service
Post by: biketucson on January 24, 2017, 03:15:01 pm

As many of you who are doing the March 11 tour in Tucson have found out, there are not a lot of bike rental options in Tucson. However, there is one bike delivery service who will pick up and deliver Specialized, Cannondale, Trek road bikes to the campground and pick up at the hotel. This company is called Tucson Bike Rentals located at The have primo bikes, well-maintained and were a real hit with Adventure Cyclists last year. They still have some bike left. Tell them Dean sent you. They provide helmets and pedals.

I was with a group of Adventure Cyclists last year and we rented bikes from this service. Top notch. The guy who runs it is all about customer service. The other guys in my group rented new Specialized Roubaixs and one guy had a Trek Domane. AZ is famous for goat heads that puncture the stock tires that are on most of our bikes. They put Armadillo or Gatorskins with Kevlar lined tires on there bikes. (BEFORE you do any tour in AZ, swap out your tires! On our tour last year there might have been over 20 flats!)

I rented a really light weight aluminum bike that did the job for not very much. There were a couple of people on one tour who had a shipping disaster. Easy to just rent and forget about it. They pick up and deliver to AC.

I live locally and did not have a good experience with this service.  Bike not ready (I went to pick up at designated time), was implied that there was something wrong with me for not wanting to ride in the summer heat the next morning (when I explained why I was not happy about waiting until the next day). Canceled reservation.

I was part of a group of 15 and we rented from Tucson Bicycle Rentals at Great service. We rented mostly Trek and Specialized. They delivered the bikes to our hotel and picked them up. Basically, the shops have all discontinued rental and there are a few services in town that are rental only. Hope this helps.
