Southwest Cycle was founded in 1981 and is the only full service bike shop on MDI’s Quietside.  Our staff are year-round residents and know all about Acadia and the rest of our fantastic island. We sell and rent both conventional bikes and e-bikes, repair and improve most brands of bicycles, and sell helmets, clothing, shoes, lights, racks, parts, and accessories. If it’s not in stock, we can have it within a week.

Our rental fleet includes e-bikes, hybrid bikes, gravel bikes, kids bikes (with and without gears) and child trailers and tag-a-longs.  Go to our Bike Rentals page for details and to request a reservation.

We sell bikes ranging from all-carbon/all electronic road bikes to e-bikes to recreational bikes, featuring Fuji, Bianchi, Soma, Breezer, Gazelle and more.  We also have a large selection of children’s, mountain, hybrid and gravel bikes from the above brands. With each new bike sold we include a 1-year tune-up and adjustment service.

Our service is done on a scheduled basis by our certified mechanics, except for flat tires which can usually be fixed while you wait. Please call us at 207-244-5856 for an appointment.

Want to have your own personal bike with you on vacation?  Southwest Cycle will receive your shipped bike, reassemble and adjust it for you, and will box and ship it home. Call us for details.

Sometimes in the fall we sell bikes from our rental fleet at great prices.

We go all-out from May thru October, and reduce hours in the shoulder seasons. Call 207-244-5856 for the latest.
