No matter the reason, The Hub offers one of the best mountain bike rental and demo fleets found anywhere! You can rent them for a single day or for multiple days, additional days are $10 less. Rentals and demos are for the business day, we DO NOT offer half day or hourly rentals, and reservations are highly recommended. If you ride with Clipless (step-in) pedals and have your own shoes, we do have most brands of pedals that we can put on the bikes, but we strongly recommend bringing your own pedals, as we have limited pedals in stock.  Bike rentals include a helmet and pedals.  We are a Yakima Demo center as well.  We have trunk racks and hitch racks available for rental & demo.
