My daughter and I rented 2 bikes from Escape Bicycle Tours and Rentals last Saturday and went on a 4-hour bike ride along the Ottawa River Pathway. The bike ride was amazing, bicycles were of great quality and very comfortable and the service at Escape Bicycle Tours and Rentals was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. The following day I booked in advance for 3 electric bikes so that my kids and I can go on another 4-hour bike ride next Saturday. We cannot wait!

Rented e-scooters for a group of five people for 4 hours. Great price compared with Bird and Lime scooters. The scooters were ready when we arrived, deposit was easy, payment was easy, and the scooters themselves worked as advertised. The staff explained how they worked and how to navigate restrictions on them around the city. Had a great time and the staff made it all go smoothly. Highly recommend for a weekend outing, even for Ottawans. Rediscover your city in ways you've never seen it before.

We had such a fun experience renting e-scooters from Escape Bicyle Tours and Rentals! The online booking process was easy and they had good COVID-19 protocols in place for wiping down the bikes and contactless payment via e-transfer. Staff were very friendly and helpful in ensuring that we had the best experience. Would definitely recommend as a fun and safe activity!

We were very short on time and the two hour bike tour was perfect for us, fantastic service, perfect guide and all the main city highlights visited. We highly recommend this tour company to anyone visiting Ottawa. Thanks for a wonderful morning.

Renting bikes from Escape was definitely one of the highlights of our Ottawa trip. The bikes were in excellent condition, reasonably priced and very comfortable for the 4 of us (2 of us in early 60s and our two teens). We were provided with free helmets, locks, panniers and a map of the city. Our destination was the Canada Aviation and Space Museum so we followed the Sir George-Etienne Cartier Parkway/Rockcliffe Parkway which runs along the Ottawa River. It was hilly at times, but the scenery was fantastic. We chose a shorter route to return our Escape rentals at the end of the day. Thanks for the great adventure, Escape Bicycle Tours and Rentals!

Best bike rental in town! Maria is so helpful choosing the most suitable bikes for me and my kids. The bikes are brand new and are well-maintained. We rented for a total of 10 weeks and had explored almost every scenic trail in the Ottawa-Gatineau area. I was amazed that even my daughter who was not able to ride a bike before renting, has turned into a semi-professional biker. Together we rode all the way up to Mackenzie King's Estate on Gatineau Park and we were so proud of ourselves. The bikes are great for all road conditions. Thank you Escape Bike for giving us an unforgettable biking experience in Ottawa and helping us through this difficult time of social distancing. We look forward to coming back to Ottawa and rent from you again!

I rented two bikes for my daughter and her partner this past weekend and Maria provided excellent service! She was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable and provided us with perfect bikes, helmets, and locks. We were out for about 4 hours and the price was very reasonable at $25 per bike. My family and I had a wonderful day and Escape Bicycle Tours and Rentals made that happen! I highly recommend this company for bike rentals.

I had been to Ottawa many times before, but Escape Bicycle Tours shared a part of Ottawa that I had not seen before. They go in-depth and are very knowledgeable and passionate about everything 'Ottawa', sharing the history and culture that makes the city what it is. This passion comes across in the quality of their service and the substance of the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone— whether it's their first visit to Ottawa or their hundredth, it is definitely worth doing. Great value and great service!

Their location is right on core downtown where is the best place to start with your journey. The bikes were superb, I was surprised how super light it is that even my wife who's just learning biking was able to adapt quickly and progress on her biking skills in just few hours! I also love the option that allows you to rent from 4pm til 10am the next day. It is just perfect for an overnight stay in Ottawa and is not a fan of biking under extreme heat :). Both checking in and checking out was a breeze! Highly recommended!

As we had never visited Ottawa before, we booked the 5 hour guided cycle tour. The tour was excellent and we felt we got a great overview of the city. Our guide, Denis, was informative and very personable.
On our second day we rented bikes again and did a self guided tour along the river to Aylmer, a picturesque little town in Quebec.
We would highly recommend Escape Bicycle Tours to anyone who loves to cycle.
