Bike Rentals

The Best Rental Bikes on Prince Edward Island

MacQueen’s high quality rental fleet of adult and youth bicycles is professionally maintained after each use. Offering little rolling resistance and an upright position, Deluxe Performance Hybrid bikes are our top pick for recreational rides and combining touring on PEI’s roads with hard-packed sections of the Confederation Trail or dirt roads on the Island Walk route. Additional rental equipment options include e-bikes, step-through frames, road bikes, tandems, trailers and trail-a-bikes, car racks, bags and more.

Renting an e-bike and wondering about battery life?
There’s no set answer for how long the batteries last. It varies depending on the rider, what level of assist they choose, and what terrain they’re riding. The Norco Scene gets up to 125 kms on a full charge, but a good average is more like 80. You can stop and recharge at lunch and it attains an 80% charge fairly quickly. The last 20% is a trickle charge, so takes longer, and is usually done on an overnight or post-ride charge. The Norco Indie has a bigger battery so if you only used the level 1 assist (which probably isn’t what most people end up doing), they say it can get up to 180 kms. They usually have plenty of juice to complete the rides we design with no issues whatsoever. It’s a 110V charger, so not difficult to find locations where you can plug in.
