Pedal Anywhere Basics
What We Do: At Pedal Anywhere we deliver rental bikes on demand. Reserve from 1 hour up to a year in advance. Ride from 1-30 days. That’s it! Our standard setup comes with free delivery and free pickup, a helmet, and a lock. From there you can customize to your heart’s content: damage waiver, theft insurance, panniers, different pedals, car racks, flat repair kits and tools, bike maps, or suburban or rural delivery.
Our Fleet: We carry high quality, non-fussy equipment from Fuji that will keep you rolling rain or shine. We have aluminum flat-bar hybrids, aluminum road/gravel bikes, and a small handful of steel touring bikes. Typical models are the Fuji Absolute 2.1, Fuji Tread 1.5, Fuji Sportif 2.3, and Fuji Touring (see more details below).
There are no deposits, and we accept debit, credit, cash, Apple Pay, and Android Pay. You pay upon delivery, and there is no cancellation fee. Rentals are fully refundable until the bike is delivered, and you will only pay for days you actually ride. Optional damage waivers ($15) and theft insurance ($20) are available for peace of mind.
We’re open 70 hours a week, from 9am-7pm every day.

Delivery and pickup within Seattle is always free, and deliveries are also available to 4 delivery zones: Inner Suburbs ($20), Outer Suburbs ($40), Inner Rural ($60), or Outer Rural ($80). To calculate your delivery charges, contact us at email@example.com. Delivery charges are a flat-rate fee covering up to 6 bikes.
What’s the fine print?
To keep the lawyers happy and to protect ourselves and you, all renters will sign our standard Rental Agreement.
What kind of pedals can I use?
All bikes come with flat (platform) pedals by default. If you prefer a different pedal type you may always bring your own pedals, or for $5 we will install the pedals of your choice. We carry the following:
- Look Keo
- Toe Clips
How many bikes can you deliver at once?
Our maximum for free delivery is 6 bikes. Group delivery rates are negotiable. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are the bikes well maintained?
We care deeply about the quality of your rental experience, and we guarantee you’ll get a freshly tuned bike every time you rent. That being said, flat tires, dropped chains, or other mechanical problems may happen at any time regardless of the level of tuning.
Do you fix flats? Will you pick me up if I’m tired, etc?
Yes! For $25 extra you may optionally add Trailside Assistance to your rental, and we will come out and fix your flats, offer mechanical assistance, or even just pick you up if you’re too tired to keep riding. Trailside Assistance is only available within the city of Seattle and its inner suburbs (20-mile radius). You may also rent a Repair Kit for $15 or purchase one for $45, which includes a saddle bag, spare tube, tire levers, a hand pump, and a multitool.
I’m doing a long bike tour. Can I do a one-way rental?
Yes! You may have different delivery or pickup locations anywhere within our delivery area, and you will be charged based on the delivery zone.
If you’re going farther, you may bike to any Amtrak station that accepts Amtrak Express Shipping packages, and send the bikes back to us in one of their bike boxes at your own expense. Every year we have several renters who ride from Seattle to San Francisco, for example, and ship the bikes back to us via Amtrak. Eligible one-way destinations include Portland, San Francisco (Oakland), Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Diego, Spokane, San Jose, Bellingham, Eugene, Klamath Falls, Santa Barbara, Denver, and Salt Lake City.
Do you offer group rates?
Yes! For groups of 10 or more, we offer a 10% discount.
How big is your fleet?
Currently we have 80 bikes in Seattle, and 20 in Friday Harbor.
Do you have kids bikes?
Yes! We carry 20″ and 24″ kids bikes, ride-along trailers, and child-carrying trailers.
Do you have electric bikes, scooters, or cargo bikes?
Not yet, but someday we hope!
Do you have [insert super high-end carbon bike with x components and y geometry]?
We stock only high quality, versatile bikes, with mid-level components and all touring-worthy with clearance for racks and fenders. So if you’re a racer, track rider, triathlete, competition cyclocross rider, or any other rider who wants a super high-end, super light bike, you’d probably be happier renting from a racing shop. We recommend Montlake Bicycle Shop, which carries a number of full carbon and titanium bikes.
