TOFINO BIKE CO
Your Friendly Neighbourhood Bike Shop
How can I get to you?
Great question. There are some options.
1) We have the free shuttle (summer months only) which stops at many spots between the Tourism Tofino Info Centre across from Cox Bay, and downtown Tofino. One stop is right in front of our location.
2) The Tikibus! This is a really cool local transit service - check their website for route timing. This is also a great option for individuals and groups going anywhere in town where you can't or don't want to drive.
3) Whistle Ride Share app. Download and Whistle for a ride. Easy.
4) Walk! We are ~1km or less to many great resorts like Crystal Cove, Mackenzie Beach Resort, Tin Wis, Zed Hotel, the Wick, as well as dozens and dozens of vacation rentals.
Do I need to reserve in advance?
You don't have to. Walk up rentals are always welcome. Reservations are recommended for groups in the peak season as we often rent out of bikes, or close to it.
But, if you are just a couple of people or a small group, and don't feel like filling out a form, there is a good chance we will have beach cruiser bikes available if you just walk up! This style of bike is our most popular and the style we have the most of.
What is your most popular bike to rent?
Hands down, this is our beach cruiser bike. Our ultra lightweight cruiser made by Cypre Bikes is super popular. This bike only has only one gear but it is the only bike we allow on the beach... and those low tide rides are oh so sweet. Also, they are - belt drive! No greasy chains.
Are helmets and locks included?
Yes! They are included in your rental.
Do I have to wear a helmet?
It is Law in BC to wear a helmet. Please don't ask us if you have to wear one or if you will get a ticket if you don't. For your health and safety we always recommend taking a helmet.
Do you sell used bikes?
Yes! Each season we sell off some of our rental fleet as we make room for new bikes. Check out our social media posts for sale notifications.
