Our rental was for 24 hours which was great. I was able to keep the bike overnight at a friend's inside apartment and do more touring in the morning before returning at the required time. Friendly service.

My wife and I rented bikes from Wheel Excitement on the recommendation by the concierge at our hotel. I was considering using Toronto Bike Share, but their bikes don't come with locks, so you can only park them at their dedicated docking stations. We wanted a little more flexibility, in case we saw a store or restaurant in a random place that we may have wanted to stop in to.

We picked up our bikes at around 12pm, and they were comfortable and funcional. Both came with baskets, case we picked up something bulky. We were told that the shop closes at 5pm to return the bikes. First we rode the bikes up Spadina to China Town for lunch. Then we rode back down to the Toronto Islands Ferry Terminal, behind the Westin hotel on Queens Quay. We rode our bikes on Toronto Islands for a couple of hours, which I highly recommend. However, since it is Winter, the ferry does not run as often as Summer, and I realized at about 4:40pm that the next ferry at 5pm would not get us back to the shop before closing. I called the shop at about 5:07pm as soon as the ferry landed back on the mainland, and fortunately someone picked up. I high tailed it back to the shop and they were nice enough to allow us to return the bikes at about 5:15pm, which was past closing time. We were extremely appreciative of this kind gesture.

I highly recommend Wheel Experience for anyone in search of a quality bike for rent in Toronto, along with friendly and helpful service.

Going to Toronto island is even nicer if you have your own bike going there. Originally we wanted to use the bike share program bikes for the island but...once you go beyond 30minutes, heavy user fees start to apply. Watch out! If you rent a bike here, you can take it on the ferry or even water taxi. Some water taxis charge an extra few bucks to haul the bike there but we were lucky enough to get on a water taxi w/our bikes w/out paying extra for the bikes. Bike rental for 24 hours was nice...our 10-year old daughter also rented a bike. We forgot to ask for night headlights...so you should get those if renting. They give you a comprehensive bike map if you are not familiar w/the downtown biking routes. Biking in downtown TO is not easy...not recommended for younger children who are not perfectly confident w/biking! The bike rental came w/locks and helmets. Never leave your bike out overnight. Most mid to upper-range hotels will keep them for you for free in their storage area. The staff here are very chill, easy-going, friendly and willing to help. First come-first serve(no reservations)...so if on a weekend, it is best to check in early to get a rental bike here.
