RIGID BIKE RENTAL
Essential Cycles is excited to announce our new rigid bike rental, which provides riders with the unique experience of a modern rigid mountain bike while also supporting our local trail associations. This project is spearheaded by Andrew, who is passionate about rigid mountain biking and supporting the local trail network. Read his perspective HERE
This rigid bike, a Marin El Roy, has aggressive hardtail geometry that provides a stable and capable ride, perfect for tackling technical terrain with confidence. It's equipped with high-quality components, a durable steel frame, hydraulic disc brakes, and a 1x drivetrain. With its rigid "double-hardtail" setup, this bike offers a more responsive and efficient riding experience, providing riders with an opportunity to try something new and exciting.
SUPPORTING LOCAL TRAIL ASSOCIATIONS
in addition to offering a unique riding experience, A Rigid bike rental supports your local trail associations. $95/day gets you a modern, aggressive rigid mountain bike experience and $90 ($30+$30+$30) goes back to trails ($5 covers fees) to help maintain and improve the trail network. We think that's a pretty awesome way to give back to the trails while trying something new!
These organizations work tirelessly to maintain and improve the local trail network, including building new trails, repairing erosion, and ensuring the trails are safe and accessible for all riders
