The Best Way to See Charleston

The Bicycle Shoppe has been renting bicycles in the Charleston area for over thirty years. We are open seven days a week and are located in the heart of the historical district of downtown Charleston and in Mt. Pleasant. There is no better way to see the historic district or the surrounding Barrier Islands! We serve Kiawah, Seabrook, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, and Wild Dunes.

We will deliver and pick up your rental bikes to Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, and Wild Dunes free of charge. If you pre-book your order, we can have your bikes waiting for you at your villa or house when you arrive. We also offer walk-ins at both locations (no reservations/first come, first served). To reserve your bike rentals, please call the location of your choice today.
