We had a great experience renting bikes here for a one week bike packing trip through the Highlands. Bikes worked perfectly and Ian and Joe are just really nice. Highly recommended!

Rented two hybrid touring bikes with racks, side bags, helmets and lock. I got a medium size (I am 5’6”) my fiancée got 2XL (He is 6’3”). We rented them for a week. They were just right, new and well equipped for emergency repairs. Friendly and helpful staff. Conveniently located near Kelvingrove Park. We biked all over Glasgow and beyond using the Komoot app. So fun! Highly recommend Gear Bikes! And Komoot app. Happy biking!
