Great place to get bikes. Three types to choose from. Full day and half day rates with helmets. Cottage St location very convenient to Village Green where you can pick up the free shuttle to Eagle Lake carriage road. Friendly and efficiently run.

This year's staff is younger than normal but great kids. They were helpful and got us in and out in a big hurry. We took the half-day rate, which is a great bargain.

We didn't want to haul bikes 5 hours up to Acadia, so we took the bus to Bar Harbor and rented bikes here. Staff was friendly. We had no issues getting a bike, even without reservations. Helmets and a map of popular trails were provided at no extra charge.

Only complaint was that my bike wouldn't stay in 2nd gear (it shifted between 1st and 3rd only).

I was in charge of a group of 19 school boys this summer on a two-week trip through parts of New England. We were in Bar Harbor for several days and wanted to bike in Acadia National Park. Luckily we found Acadia Bike and used them to outfit our group. They were very accommodating offering us great bikes and friendly service. It was also a huge benefit that they met us at the Park with our bikes so we didn't have to bike from downtown to the Park. We sent them a list of boys heights ahead of time and they came to the Park with bikes in a variety of sizes and spares just in case. They also provided helmets, helped each boy get the seat adjusted, and had boys ride around in the parking lot for a few minutes to make sure everyone was comfortable with their bike and bike operation. Then the Acadia Bike person rode with us for a few minutes to get us started in the right direction. And when we were done, he was there waiting for us to load up the bike. First rate service throughout the process. I highly recommend Acadia Bikes.

This place is located on cottage street, just a block or two of maine and a two block walk to the town green where there is Free shuttle and bike transport into acadia! The staff is so friendly and knowledgable and care about their customers. We rented two mountain bikes, grabbed waters and rented the bike pack to hold our personal items. The prices are very reasonable and the bikes and helmets were in great shape. They even give you 6 bucks per bike back if you returned in 4 hours or less (which we did).
