Demo Bike and Trike Rentals

Bicycle & Recumbent Trike Demo Rentals

July 2023 Update: After 12 years of meeting the needs of our rental customers through customer-centric availability and concierge service, I am shifting to a Demo business model. I continue to feature my broad selection of functional folding and transportable bikes by Bike Friday, Tern, Brompton, Montague, and trikes by TerraTrike and GreenSpeed -- all designed for sustainable daily riding. In support of our mission to sell these bikes to the local bicycle riding community, 100% of the demo fee can be applied to the purchase of any bike or trike within 30 days. Ride on!

I recommend these other locally-owned independent bike shops for rentals:
Sebastopol Bike Center 
Wine Country Bikes

Our helmets are state-of-the-art Kali Protectives "Alchemy" helmets with patented linear- and rotational-impact resisting technologies that significantly lower the risk of injury in the unlikely event of a crash. We sell these helmets for $100. Borrow them at no extra cost with your rental.
  • Can you deliver the bike to me? We can deliver! A mere $1/mile fee for delivery and pickup mileage (Round-trip mileage)
  • What does 'Demo Only' mean? Prospective buyers may rent our specialty bikes as a way to 'try before you buy'. These 'Demo Only' bikes are not available for casual rentals.
  • What if I decide to buy a bike from BikePartners? 75% of your rental fee can be applied to the purchase of any bicycle within 90 days. This is a great way to try before you buy!
  • What kind of bikes do you rent? Browse our rental products using the reservation system below; your reservation request will be reviewed by staff, and a payment link will be emailed to you
  • Can I just walk i and rent a bike? Same Day Walk-in Rentals are available during shop hours only and must be returned the same day. Price is 25% off the full 24-hour day rental. (Note: Same day walk-in rentals are suspended due to the Covid19 pandemic)
  • Do you offer discounts for groups? Volume Group Rates: If your group size is 5 or more riders, we offer 5% discount on the rentals; If your group size is 10 or more riders, we offer 10% discount on the rentals. Note that discounts are not 'additive'.
  • Do you rent bike racks for cars? No rack needed because our bikes fold! All of our bikes fold in half for convenient transport in the trunk of a car. This unique feature sets us apart from all the rest!
  • What do the bikes look like? Like a regular bike! Our bikes look like your bike -- no big advertising signs, no 'bike share' industrial hardening on components. These are regular bikes so you can fit right in with the locals!
