What our happy customers say about us!

  • Super awesome shop. All the clerks were friendly, the owner was there directing things, the bikes were good quality models and well adjusted and performed flawlessly. It is easy for my wife and I to get from the shop to the multi use path along the Rideau canal for a great , easy and flat ride down the canal along a beautiful city scape. If you are into a bigger challenge, it’s just as easy to head North into Gatineue park and ride there. We will be back the next time we are in Ottawa. Great shop and good people.

  • Our family's experience with Escape this week matches the previous reviewer's. With one day's notice, they had 4 bikes ready and waiting (on time), the people behind the counter were pleasant and helpful, the cost was exactly as quoted, and the bikes were in perfect condition. You can't, and should not expect anything more from a company that this. Nice work Escape! We'll be back.

  • We had an excellent day with three of their sportive and very easy to handle bikes. The service was great and it is worth the money because it is definitively the prettiest way to visit Ottawa. I can fully recommend it!

  • Rented a bike as part of a weekly rental for my trip to Ottawa for Canada Day 2017. Great location in terms of pick up and drop off, helpful and friendly staff, really appreciated that a helmet and heavy duty U-lock were included (Kryptonite brand) in the rental, and the maps that they provided were very useful in finding safe and scenic routes to the landmarks I wanted to see.

  • Maria at Escape Bicycle Tours helped me pick out the perfect bike for a 50km charity race - I was coming from out of town and didn't want to bring my bike. Worked out great and I will definitely come again when I'm in town again, enjoy some more cycling along the canal! 🙂

  • Ths is truly the best place to rent bikes. THis is right in the heart of where you would want to be, right near the parliament and the paths you will like to ride. The prices are the lowest around, and the bike quality sis phenomenal. If you are looking to rent a bike in Ottawa, this is the only place you should be looking at. Joe.

  • We rented a tandem for the whole day to visit Gatineau Parc. The tandem was in excellent condition and still much cheaper than the ones from competitors. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with the instruction. Would always come again!

  • Everything runs very smoothly, reservation, checkin/out, Maria is a professional as their team, the equipment is perfect, if you need help with the route, they explain you very well, the price is better than competition, thanks and keep working like this.

  • I do not typically write reviews, but I just want to share my terrific experience at Escape Bicycle Tours and Rentals. The staff were amazing and Maria, the owner, took the time to ensure the 4 of us (myself along with my wife and 2 daughters), had bikes that were properly measured for each of us, and she spent the extra time letting us know cycling routes around the area. I would recommend using Escape Bicycle Tours for anyone visiting (or residing) in the Ottawa area.

  • My experience with the bike rental service was amazing! I reserved one online for 2.5 weeks and when I arrived they had one ready for me with a helmet, lock, and waterproof bag. I was on my way in minutes. Biking the city was great and the bike was really good quality. Had no problems whatsoever and the staff were courteous and helpful. Would recommend to anyone and everyone I can!
