Bike Shops & Rentals

Home - Guides and Gear - Find Gear - Bike Shops & Rentals

People travel from all over the world to experience the incredible riding we have to offer. A temperate climate and access to miles of lightly traveled roads and trails are just a few of the reasons why Roanoke is quickly becoming known as a cycling mecca.

Buy a new bike, get a tune-up, or rent a set of sweet wheels for a day on the Roanoke River Greenway. There’s even a shop that will create the bike of your dreams. There is likely a bike shop, rental, or retail location somewhere right around the corner from where you are from Roanoke to Salem to the Alleghany Highlands.

And if you don’t own a bike, you can rent one to find out what all the fuss is about. (We bet you’ll fall in love!)
