Central Vermont: The Heart of New England

Daily Bike Rentals

If you’re looking for quality Vermont bike rentals – on a daily basis – then look no further than Great Bike Tours. We will deliver the bikes (for a reasonable fee) to any number of bike-friendly B&Bs (such as the Inn at Charlotte or the Old Lantern Inn), or even better, come and stay at our Lodge (Amee Farm Lodge) in Pittsfield, VT and rent some bikes while you’re here. We’ll provide everything you need for a wonderful day of exploration in Central Vermont. Our trained bike tour leaders will expertly fit you to a bike, adjust your helmet for you, and send you safely on your way. We have several bike models to choose from, and all of our bikes are brand new.

If you enjoy yourself so much that you’d like to take part in a fully-supported multi-day bike tour, please see our Central Vermont Bike Tour page.
