Where To Rent Bikes in Mammoth Lakes, California

You’re headed to the beautiful Eastern Sierra for a weekend of adventure and rejuvenation but you’re just missing two things: two wheels! Thankfully, Mammoth Lakes has a couple of bike rental options to get you out on the bike paths or shredding down the ‘kitty litter’ terrain in the bike park. Whether you’re seeking a full-suspension rig or want a little bit of electric assistance, there’s something for everyone (expect road cyclists… shockingly, there are no high-end road bike rentals to be found around town). Below is a guide on where to rent/demo bikes in Mammoth Lakes, California.


What to Know Before you rent

Before you rent a bike in Mammoth, here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Don’t underestimate the elevation
The town of Mammoth is situated at almost 7,900ft and the top of the mountain is over 11,000ft. If you’re not sure what that means, it means that you’ll likely be sucking air when pedaling up even the smallest of slopes. So keep that in mind when you go in for a rental. It’s hard work mountain biking in Mammoth, even if it is a lift-service bike park. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.

2. e-Bikes are allowed on all trails WITHIN the bike park
But not on the trails outside of the park like Mountain View and Mammoth Rock Trail.

3. It’s always good to get the extra insurance
Especially at a bike park… give yourself peace of mind when renting a bike at Mammoth and just go for the extra insurance. There are some tough trails in the park and the kitty litter terrain makes the riding a bit unpredictable until you get the hang of it.

4. You’ll either need a full pass or a pedal pass to ride the park
The full pass allows you to ride the gondola, lifts, and village shuttle. The pedal pass only allows for leg-powered pedaling up and down the trails.

5. There are lots of options outside of the bike park!
If bike park riding isn’t your thing, Mammoth still has you covered. There are miles of paved bike paths as well as quiet dirt fire roads surrounding down. An e-bike is a great way to explore both.

All trails in the Mammoth Bike Park are also open to e-bikes so it’s only fitting that the mountain rents them as well.
