We arrived at Southwest Cycle a few minutes before they opened, and they were so accommodating. We were on a tight schedule because we wanted to rent bikes to take with us to the Cranberry Islands. Southwest Cycle quickly suited us up with 4 bikes...More

No reservations is not the way I do things. I don't like disappointment. But our plans changed and we showed up at 9 AM without reservations needing a woman's and a man's bike for two days. Bob made it happen. Further we carried in the...More

The guys have a wonderful sense of humor, take their time fitting you to the bike, allow cycle returns "when you're done having fun," and are very reasonably priced.

There is something to be said about "one getting too big for their britches". Meaning, having an exaggerated sense of ones own importance. It doesn't matter if they are a small bike shop or a large outfitter. Its the arrogance that matters. I called this...More

We rented two adult bikes, two young children's bikes that were tagsalongs and a car rack. From start to finish the people at the shop were helpful. The cost was much cheaper compared to Bar Harbor. Would return in an instant!
