Looking for a way to get around when you visit Pelee Island? A bike rental could be just what you're looking for!

At The Pelee Shop we have a fleet of over 150 bicycles, adult tricycles, kids bikes, tandem bikes, e-bikes, and bike trailers available for rent!

It is best if reservations are made online at If you are having issues with the website or are having a hard time finding availability for the date you would like you can call us at 519.724.2828.

SUPER IMPORTANT PART! If you are making a reservation you should receive an email and/or text with a link to sign a waiver. Please make sure that EVERYONE ON YOUR RESERVATION signs that waiver from that link BEFORE coming to pick up your bikes. At the end of the waiver it will say "Sign another waiver" DO NOT click that, instead close out of it and click on the provided link again, this will help ensure that all waivers are properly linked to your reservation.

If you will be walking in with no reservation it is still best if you sign a waiver in advance. With that you can use this generic link:

If you do not sign the wavier in advance we have three tablets available to be used when you arrive to sign waivers, however our employees also use them to check in customers. The waivers are a bit lengthy and typically take a few minutes per person to fill out, so if there is a long line of people that need to sign waivers it could take a fair bit of time, DRASTICALLY increasing the amount of time it takes for youth check in, thus cutting valueable time from your day.

Here is one sentence to sum up the above paragraphs.

Bike Styles & RAtes

Cruiser/Basket Bikes *Most popular*
3 Hours - $35 +HST | Full Day (Return by 8pm) - $45 +HST | 24 Hours - $55 +HST | 1 Week - $225 +HST

Cruiser/basket bikes are our most popular rental option. These cruiser style bikes provide an easy, smooth ride around the island. Pretty well all of our basket bikes are 7-speed and they all (as the name states) have a basket on the front to carry your belongings. These are available with a step through or a step over frame, though most of our fleet are step through in order to make it easier to get on and off the bikes.

Hybrids and Mountain Bikes
3 Hours - $35 +HST | Full Day (Return by 8pm) - $45 +HST | 24 Hours - $55 +HST | 1 Week - $225 +HST

You will commonly hear us refer to these bikes as "mountain bikes" but the truth is we don't have many true mountain bikes in our rental fleet. The majority of these bikes are some form of hybrid between a cruiser style bike and a mountain bike. The majority of these bikes are 21 speed, and feature a rack on the back to hold a bag or other belongings (bungee cords are available and included in the rental price to strap things down to the back rack).

Rent A Hybrid/Mountain Bike
Adult Tricycles
3 Hours - $35 +HST | Full Day (Return by 8pm) - $45 +HST | 24 Hours - $55 +HST | 1 Week - $225 +HST

We have a couple of adult sized tricycles available to rent. Each of them feature a large basket on the back to carry your belongings. The adult tricycles can be a bit different to ride and many people are unable to manage riding them so if you are thinking of renting one we will allow you to give it a quick try before committing. Please note that we cannot attach trailers to our adult trikes.

Tandem Bikes
3 Hours - $65 +HST | Full Day (Return by 8pm) - $75 +HST | 24 Hours - $85 +HST | 1 Week - $375 +HST

Tandem bikes are not a good alternative for people who do not know how to ride a bike, we do not recommend that inexperienced riders rent a tandem bike! Tandem bikes feature two seats one in front of the other so that two people can ride together. Many people think it is a good option if there is one person who doesn't really know how to ride a bike - this is not the case. Riding a tandem bike is not nearly as simple as you think it would be, there is definitely a learning curve, even for experienced bike riders. Due to the difficulty of riding a tandem bike we will allow you to give one of these a try before committing to it. Please note that we cannot attach trailers to any of our tandem bikes.

Rent A Tandem Bike
3 Hours - $65 +HST | Full Day (Return by 8pm) - $75 +HST

A few notes about e-bikes - We require that all e-bike riders be 18 years of age or older, and provide a valid drivers license and credit card to leave on file until your bike is returned. We also do not allow overnight rentals of our e-bikes at this time. Our e-bikes work as both pedal assist or fully electric. The pedal assist works on a scale of 1-6 with using the least assist and 6 using the most, the higher the number, the quicker you will go through the battery. On fully electric mode you will obviously go through the battery the quickest. Please note that we cannot attach trailers to any of our e-bikes.

Rent an E-Bike
Kids & Youth Bikes - $20/Day
3 Hours - $15 +HST | Full Day (Return by 8pm) - $25 +HST | 24 Hours - $35 +HST | 1 Week - $125 +HST

We have a small handful of kids bikes available for rent. Kids bike rates are based on the type of bike rented, not the age of the child. If a child is too big to ride one of our kids bikes then you will be charged for an adult bike. We do have bikes small enough for most kids as young as 5 (obviously depending on the size of the child). We do not currently offer training wheels for our kids bikes and do not allow any modifications including the addition of your own training wheels to our bikes.

Bike Trailers For Children - $20/Day
3 Hours - $15 +HST | Full Day (Return by 8pm) - $25 +HST | 24 Hours - $35 +HST | 1 Week - $125 +HST

We have a small fleet of bike trailers available to attach to your bike. Our kids trailers all have two seats, though if your kids are older or larger they may be a bit more cramped if there are two of them in one trailer. All of our trailers do have some extra space at the back for bags, coats, etc. Pets are not allowed to ride in kids trailers. The max weight limit for kids trailers is 100lb including bags and luggage. Please note that we cannot attach trailers to any of our tandem bikes, adult trikes, or e-bikes, as well as a select few of our mountain/hybrid bikes.

There is also a small exterior mesh pouch that you can use to hold toys, leashes, etc. Please note that we cannot attach trailers to any of our tandem bikes, adult trikes, or e-bikes, as well as a select few of our mountain/hybrid bikes.
