Gale Force Bikes is located closest to the bicycle trails at the Cape Cod National Seashore. Our store is in the quiet West End a short walk away from the busy center of town and nearest to the beach and bike trails. Dedicated bicycle lanes start at our place which allow riders to travel to and from the bicycle trails and beach without having to ride with traffic on the road. We are authorized dealers of Cannondale, GT, Schwinn, Izip and Diamondback bicycles. We offer bike rentals, sales, service and repairs and a large selection of bicycle parts and accessories. Our rental fleet includes electric bikes, hybrids, mountain bikes, comfort bikes, beach cruisers, road bikes, tandems and adult 3 wheelers. Rental bicycles are available in a variety of sizes for adults and children. For toddlers we have trailers and tag-along bikes. We stock a wide variety of tubes, tires, wheels and other bicycle parts and accessories. We sell both new and used bicycles at reasonable prices.
All of our bicycle rentals include a lock, helmet and free parking (parking for hourly rentals only).
Our rental bikes are equipped with a bell, headlight, taillight and most have a water bottle cage
and rear rack with bungee cord.
