MSU Bikes' Rental Bike Services



Whether getting around town or traveling between classes, a bike can make a tremendous difference for getting to where you need to be quickly and efficiently. Renting can be a great resource for students or community members to utilize the advantages of bike transit without the responsibility and costs of owning your own bike.




Frequently Asked Questions:


How long can I rent for?

We offer rental periods ranging from day all the way to year. Semester rentals are also very popular. Look below for rates.


What is your deposit policy?

Rentals less than a week require a $200 hold on a card. Rentals for longer than a week require a payment of $200 that will be refunded to you when the bike is returned in good condition. Deposits can be paid in cash or card but we can only refund on card. When purchasing a rental online, the deposit will be listed as "Shipping." Sorry for the confusion.


What is included with my rental?

Rentals include a U-Lock and optional helmet. All basic maintenance is also included during your rental period. This includes flat fixes, new brake pads and brake and shift adjusts. 


Do I need to permit my rental?

Nope! All rentals are already permitted through our shop.


Can I reserve a bike before I get to campus?

Absolutely! When students return in the fall we quickly run out of available rentals. To ensure that you or your student has a bike available, we make pre-renting available starting August 1st. Simply rent a bike for the desired amount of time through this site. In the notes section, please list your student's name if applicable, their approximate height, and the date you expect to pick it up.

Do you accommodate after hours drop offs/pick ups?

We do our best to accommodate after hours pick ups and drop offs. Give us a call and we will do our best to make a plan.
