Each Big Wheel store has its own fleet of rental and used bikes. Our Georgetown store is right next to the C & O Canal bike path. Our rental bikes are unique and of high quality, in contrast to the low-end, one size fits all, cookie-cutter bikes provided by our competitors, including Capital Bike Share. We rent hybrids, performance hybrids, mountain bikes, and road bikes. Bicycles may be rented by the hour (3-hour minimum) or by the day. A driver's license or major credit card is required. Helmets and cable locks are provided free of charge upon request.
