Renting a bike from Bears Bikes gives you the opportunity to ride a high quality bike for a fraction of the cost of owning one. When you rent with us you get much more than just a bicycle. The Renter’s Package includes the following:

  • One year rental of a 21-speed Giant/Schwinn/Trek Mountain, Giant Hybrid Bicycle, or Critical Single Speed Bicycle
  • One year rental of a Kryptonite U-Lock & registration with the WashU Police Department ($20 value)
  • Free maintenance for the full academic year ($50 value)
  • Free winter break storage & a mid-year tune-up ($55 value)
  • Don’t have to worry about storing your bike for the summer ($60 value)

The hybrid bikes are our highest-end model that are the most versatile bike we offer and offer a smooth and comfortable ride. Brand new last year, we are proud to offer Critical single speed bikes as our third model. They are a fantastic, sleek, extremely light, and simple way to bike on and off campus. Mountain bikes are our older model, that have thicker tires but will still get around campus very well! If you have any questions about which bike we recommend, email us at

We take a $150 security deposit on each bike rental in the rare case that it is lost or stolen during the year. We return the deposit by check when the bike is returned.

If you are not interested in a full academic year rental but would still like to rent a bike for a day, weekend, or however long you’d prefer, we would be more than willing to accommodate you. These reservations should be sent to
