What is a Fat Bike?
Fat bikes have oversized tires which make them comfortable to ride on soft surfaces such as snow or sand. Fat bike tires generally act as suspension. Inflated at very low pressure, the tires absorb the majority of shocks for maximum comfort. Besides the oversized tires, this type of bike is similar to any other bicycle.
Is it hard to ride a fat bike?
Despite its bulky look, the big tires provide lots of stability and make it very easy to ride a fat bike. Our rental winter fat bikes are in fact very light.
What kind of bikes are best for winter cycling in Ottawa?
Although, you can ride any bikes in winter , due to the ice and snow conditon in Ottawa, it is best to ride a fat bike or install studded tires on your regular bike.

“I rented a pair of hybrid touring bikes which took me from Ottawa to Kingston in one day. The bikes were completely reliable, efficient and well priced. Picking up and dropping off the bikes was easy, and all the staff I encountered were knowledgeable and professional.”

Simon Jones

“On a recent visit from Vancouver, I rented a standard hybrid bike for a 2-hour ride along the canal, and back along the river bikeway to appreciate the early fall colours. Very convenient location on the Sparks Street mall. Helpful staff in lining up the right size and bike and helmet. Great value.”

Ian Graham

“Delighted to have rented bikes from Escape Bicycle Tours & Rentals. They have a great range of bikes (hybrid and mountain) suitable for adults and kids (we got the ‘giraffe’ tandem bike attachment, which was perfect for our child) at really good rates. Very professional, accommodating and had everything (helmets, locks, seat cushions) we needed for our family. Ensured bikes were sanitized and social distancing was respected when visiting store. We have done a day rental and a long term rental and both our experiences were excellent. With the latter, we had great follow up customer service to ensure tires were fully inflated and all was in working order. Highly recommended. Give Maria a shout and she will take great care of you.”
