Really great service and the quality of the bike I rented, a cyclocross bike, was exceptional and much better than I ever expected of a rental bike. I rented the bike for a week and took it with to rural Ontario, near Barry's Bay, and used it for road and trail biking. It came with a patch kit and pump, which I was really pleased about, as I'd neglected to bring mine with me when I flew to Ottawa. A great experience and I would definitely would rent from Rentabike again. My only complaint was the hours - it was hard to return my bike because they closed early and opened after my morning flight. The location is wonderfully central but parking for a car is a bit tricky. The rental location is in a very cool spot under a bridge - it felt very European.

Nice fall day so we dropped and rented bikes for a 4 hour ride. Did the Rideau Canal, Hogs back falls, Little Italy, Gatineau and all with hardly on a busy street.

The bikes are in good shape and I thought that &25 was quite reasonable.

We have been blessed with some lovely cycling conditions late October.

Well, you can rent a bike and ride along the long bicycle road along the river. A must-do thing if you come to Ottawa for the first time. But, be careful, because the bicycle road is too long, so plan you riding time carefully, otherwise you can get the bike late and you will have to pay extra money to the guy. Also, don't push yourself too much and sweat all your body like I did; instead, ride slowly and enjoy the road and the nice scenery around.

I showed up this morning to rent a bike to go along the Rideau Canal. The girl working had me in a bike super fast and helped me with my route. I went to Dows then Hogsback Falls, the returned along the Rideau River like she suggested. It was a gorgeous ride and just the right length for me! Highly recommended.

I rented a race bike and took it to Gatineau park. The bike was in perfect shape (also got a spare tube, CO2 cartridges, Look pedals and shoes). I had a small accident leaving the bike with some scratches on the handlebar and saddle, but they did not charge me anything extra.
Keep it up guys!
