There are cheaper places from which to rent bikes in Beijing, but this well-organised outfit is worth spending a little more on, particularly if you are in a group or visiting Beijing with kids in tow.
They rent a range of good quality bikes, including mountain bikes, road bikes and ordinary city bikes, but they also run guided bike tours around the city and beyond, including trips to the Great Wall.
All their guides, and the shop assistants, speak at least some English.
They can also provide you with helmets (¥20), baby seats (¥50), children’s trailers (¥100) and strong bike locks (free).
Rental prices are ¥50-100 per day for the first day, with prices halving for any subsequent days. Deposits range from Â¥600-800, depending on the bike. Alternatively, let them scan a copy of your passport.
