Southwest Cycle is a full service bike shop that sells and rents bikes, repairs all brands of bicycles, and sells clothing, shoes and accessories. If we do not have what you want we can usually order it and have it for you within a week.

Southwest Cycle sells bikes ranging from all-carbon road bikes to entry-level recreational bikes and e-bikes, featuring Fuji, Bianchi, Breezer, Soma, Gazelle and more.  We also have a large selection of children's, mountain, hybrid, cyclocross and gravel bikes from the above brands.

With each new bike sold we offer a 1-year tune-up warranty.  All adjustments are on us!

Our rental fleet includes e-bikes, hybrid bikes, gravel bikes, kids bikes (with and without gears) and child trailers and tag-a-longs.  Car racks are required with each rental (see Allen rack fit list) unless riding from the shop or carrying in a pickup truck.  E-bikes may only be carried on receiver hitches or in pickup trucks.

CAR RACK DISCLAIMER: Many new cars have trunks and liftgates with plastic trim and lightweight hinges. We cannot install trunk racks on such vehicles.

*NOTE - The Island Explorer will be running to Southwest Harbor/the "Quietside" of MDI the summer of 2024.*
For routes and timetables go to the Island Explorer webpage.

Due to space limitations, all service is done on a scheduled basis, except for flat tires which can usually be fixed while you wait. Please call us for an appointment.

Want to have your own personal bike with you on vacation?  Southwest Cycle will reassemble your bike if you ship it to us, and will box and ship it home as needed.

We periodically sell our rentals (in the fall at the end of our season) and welcome trade-ins towards the purchase of a new bike (name brand bike, shop quality only).

In the off season, call 207-244-5856 for shop hours.
