SprocKidz offers a limited number of rental bikes, and are given on a first-come-first-served basis. Those interested in a rental bike will need to contact the SprocKidz Director at the start of sign up. At the end of the season you are responsible to get your rental bike tuned up and fix any broken parts. We require a receipt showing that the tune up and repairs were completed at the end of the season before you return the bike for a full refund on your deposit. 2019 Rates*: $100 Rental Fee; $100 Deposit Check (this check is not cashed and will be returned to you upon the return of the completely tuned-up bike at the end of the season)
2019 SEASON NOTE: As of April 22, our available inventory consists of one full-size 26-inch bike and two small-frame 26-inch models.
