    Hello! We’re planning to be on Chincoteague this weekend, the 29th March. We’re wondering if we need to reserve bikes ahead? We need two adult and two kid’s size (for age 6 and 8 years). We’re not sure of our timing and would prefer to just stop in, if possible. Thanks :)

      Hi Kimberly,

      Unfortunately we haven’t figured out the logistics of taking reservations yet, but you shouldn’t have problems getting bikes on Friday. Saturday morning might be tough, but you can certainly rent them for the whole weekend if you’d like to ride throughout your visit.

      If our door is closed when you arrive, you can sign bikes out at the Refuge Inn next door. See you in a few days!

  2. Mike says:

    Will you still be renting bikes Sep 3-6 2013?
    Thanks

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Mike,

      Absolutely! The shop itself should be open, but if by chance our door is locked, you can rent the bikes from the Refuge Inn next door.

    Do you also repair personal bikes?

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Lisa, though we do not take reservations, you shouldn’t have problems renting bikes that weekend. Send someone over before 9AM and you should be fine. See you soon!

    We would like to reserve 2 bikes for 5 days, July 1-5. We would also like a basket on each one and 1 bike lock. We will be arriving at the Inn on the 30th. Thank you

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Amy,

      As stated on our FAQ page, we are unable to reserve bikes at this time. You are welcome to stop by when you get into town and pick out the bikes you’d like. See you soon!

    Hi. We –2adults and 2 children– are staying on the opposit side of the Island from Assteague Island.
    When we are renting bikes, we will need to drive to your place.
    Can we park our car at your place while we are biking?

  7. Pat Beck says:

    We are coming Oct. 18-19-20. Are you still open?

    • Cynthia says:

      Weather permitting, we will be here. Check at the Refuge Inn front desk if nobody is at the shop when you would like to rent the bikes.

  8. Connie McIntyre says:

    My husband is handicapped and cant walk good and I need to know if you or anyone on the island rent electric scooter carts (ones similar to a hover round) so he can enjoy the trails with us? We will be arriving on Sept 6th. Thank you for your time.

    • Cynthia says:

      I am sorry to say that I do not know of anyone who rents mobility scooters here on Chincoteague. You might try asking the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge if they have any accessibility programs for their trails. Their phone number is 757-336-6122. Another option would be to ask at the local pharmacy, H&H, at 757-336-3115. Many of our guests who need oxygen are able to rent it from Apple Discount Drug in Salisbury, Maryland, and have the tanks delivered here. Best of luck!

    We are planning a bike trip on the Southern end of the eastern shore. A 5-6 day ride. I am concerned about crossing the bridge to Chincoteague ( 175) on bikes. Is there a shoulder on the bridge?

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Jim, most of the causeway to Chincoteague has a shoulder; however, there are a few stretches where there is no shoulder at all. Folks ride across the causeway on bicycles occasionally, but itdoes not seem very safe for cyclist or driver. Traffic moves at 55 mph for about 3 miles, one lane in each direction. It is not illegal, as far as I know, but you might talk to the Chincoteague Police department to ask about an escort if there are more than a few of you.

  10. Liz Smith says:

    Hi — We’re headed up from Norfolk on the day after Thanksgiving (11/29) — are you guys renting bikes that weekend? Weather is supposed to be cold but dry! Thanks, Liz

  11. Molly says:

    Hi there! My boyfriend and I are planning an overnight for this weekend and were interested in renting bikes for the day on Saturday. I was curious about the rates for the winter time and availability. Also, whether or not we need to reserve them in advance or anything. Thanks!

    Molly

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Molly,

      The rates on the “bikes” page apply year round, and you will not need a reservation. Just come in to the front desk of the Refuge Inn signs they will sign the bikes out to you.

  12. carey says:

    We are coming in July 2014 and was wanting to know if we drive onto the island and rent bikes, is everything (beach area, biking trails, and boat tours all w/i biking distances? Do we rent the day we come onto the island or do we reserve in advance? We were also wondering if there are any recommended family seafood restaurants on the islands. Please let me know and thanks for the info. Please email me any info you have thanks.

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Carey! Chincoteague is only 7 miles long and a mile and a half wide (at its widest point) so everything is bikable. If you are doing a sunset cruise, you may want to drive as some of the roads aren’t very well lit and the shoulder is small. We do not take reservations so you can just stop by when you arrive. Several family seafood restaurants on the island, but our favorites are Bill’s (fancier) The Village, Don’s, and Steamers (all you can eat.)

      See you in July!

  13. Pete Wilson says:

    What is the address of Bike Depot in Chincoteague?

    Thanks. Pete

    • Cynthia says:

      7058 Maddox Boulevard– Past the traffic circle and just before McDonald’s and the bridge to Assateague.
