Renting Bikes in Iceland?
Posted March 26th, 2011 - 4:14 pm by from Thunder Bay, Canada (Permalink)
Hello guys and gals,

It's great that this group was started, we are planning a cycling trip in Iceland this May.

Neither of us have ever been to Iceland but we feel this is a much more rewarding way to see the landscape. The tricky part for us is that we're traveling to the Faroe Islands and Norway after our cycling adventure and therefore don't want to bring bikes all the way from Canada. We were thinking as an alternative to either; rent, borrow, or purchase bikes in Iceland. We've found that renting bikes from a commercial business is very expensive so are exploring other options.

Does anybody have any suggestions of an inexpensive way for us to acquire bikes for 2-3 weeks?

Aaron & Jess.

It has not helped me much, but maybe it will help you!
Do any Iceland locals know where I might find the bike I am looking for?

I'm looking into biking around Iceland (around Reykjavík) this July. I'll only be in Iceland for 5 days, and I'm looking to enjoy the bike ride and not rush anything. How was your experience with biking?
