About Ithaca Bike Rental
Ithaca Bike Rentals is a program of the Ithaca Youth Bureau, made possible by a grant from the Tompkins County Tourism Program. Our mission is to provide a safe, fun, and healthy way for visitors to experience the splendor of the Ithaca area, while encouraging local youth to be actively involved in an entrepreneurial venture. We offer the best bicycles and accessories possible for rent at a competitive price. Enjoy new Fuji Crosstown 2.1 adult comfort bikes that are a joy to ride anywhere with 21 speeds. The kids will have fun and look good on new Diamondback BMX style rides. If you want a comfortable, more stable ride, we now have Torker adult tricycles available. It is perfect for the Farmers Market, with a large basket. Quality child seats are available. Try out our new bicycle built for two. Take the whole family!
We are located at the southern end of Cayuga Lake, in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of New York. Ithaca Bike Rental service specializes in rentals to visitors and tourists. Start your sight seeing just outside our door on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail in Stewart Park. This is a very scenic ride along Cayuga Lake. The nearly six mile ride will take over an hour at a leisurely pace that lets you take in all of the sites. The more challenging Black Diamond Trail is now open. It is worth the effort in order to view Taughannock Falls which is taller than Niagara Falls. This adds about 16 miles to your outdoor adventure.
Stewart Park, where your ride begins, is a gem that is continually being improved. The Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center are both just a short ride away. This is recreational biking at it's finest. You will be surrounded by the natural beauty that Ithaca is known for. Several local sites of interest or historic value are located within easy biking distance. Parking and facilities are available. Browse our picture section for a tour of sites to see.
