“Acadia Bike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Not being avid bike riders, we were skeptical, but after a day in the most beautiful park on the best maintained bikes, we were sold. All the people at the bike shop were knowledgeable and supportive. The bikes were finely tuned and not a hitch all day other then riding too far. This is definitely a must, there is no other way to see Acadia, no busses or cars see the vistas that the carriage trails allow.

“Very Satisfactory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Rented two bikes for a good part of the day. Picked them up at 8AM and had no issues. Don't understand the review that said they send you off without adjusting. Just ask. They are college help so they aren't exactly professionals. We biked across town and out Schooner Head Road and along the road behind Sand Beach. A short portage and you're on the Park Loop Road. Up to Otter Point and along the little side road that leads back to the highway. Right turn and down past the Sieur du Monts Entrance and into town. A medium level ride. Would have appreciated my road bike but we don't haul them with us.

“Get bikes here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Rented two bikes for 1/2 a day - service was quick and friendly! Gave us tips for riding on the carriage roads (counterclockwise loop around Eagle Lake and Jordan Pond). Bikes were in good shape! Use the bicycle express bus that picks you up for free just a few blocks away and takes you to the carriage roads.

“Adequate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Three stars might seem a teensy bit mean, but "Very Good" would be too much of a stretch. Although all very friendly, I just think the staff should check cyclists are set up correctly before they leave. It's all a bit rushed and chaotic, without any space or encouragement to have a brief cycle to check saddle position and brakes properly.
