Mobi Bike Share Vs. Cycle City Rental Shop

29 March 2017 / Josh B

Comments

We love bike share and think it’s a great addition to the various transportation options that the city has to offer.  It’s perfect for direct commutes that are 30 min or shorter. The following is a quick comparison to help you choose the best option for your city touring rental:

RATE:

Most recreational riders and visitors spend 2 – 5 hours (or more!) exploring Vancouver’s extensive seawall, Stanley Park forest trails, and neighbourhoods.  Vancouver is an extremely bike-friendly city so use your bike all day to get the best experience!

                                                       Cycle City                    Mobi

Half Day Rental (5 hours)      $ 25.50                        $ 52.50  ($7.50 day membership plus overage fees)

 

BIKE STYLE

Mobi bikes are durable, but are heavy and come in one-size suitable for adults only.

Cycle City offers light-weight recreational bikes that are replaced each season so the bikes are mint and expertly tuned.  We carry best-in-class 8-spd city bikes, sporty commuter bikes, electric bikes, tandems, and all kids’ accessories.  They come in various colours and a full size range to choose from. Rentals include lock, handlebar bag or basket, and helmet.
