Why Choose Discovery

We are well-known for setting the bar high when it comes to quality rentals and tours. Make the most of your San Juan Islands cycling experience by renting with Discovery Adventure Tours. Here are some highlights about why Discovery should be your outfitter of choice.

Quality Bikes & Equipment

We provide high-quality bikes and keep our fleet maintained in excellent condition. Every bike that leaves our shop gets inspected before and after it is ridden. Every rental includes a helmet, lock, pump, and patch kit in case of flat. Our hybrid and electric-assist bikes come standard with rear racks and bags and our road bikes include a seat bag and can be outfitted with a rear rack upon request.

Hassle-Free Downtown Location

We are located just a short walk up the street from the Friday Harbor ferry dock, so picking up a bike couldn’t be easier! You can reserve online before you arrive, or simply walk in. And we have an after-hour drop-offs option, relieving the stress of trying to make it back to town before a certain hour.


We have the island’s largest selection of rental bikes, as well as the largest fleet of E-bikes. With several models to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the bike that’s right for you. We carry hybrid bikes, a comfortable 24-speed bike with a slightly upright riding posture. We have a selection of road bikes, with a drop-bar style for a sportier ride. Finally, we offer Electric Pedal Assist bicycles, also known as E-bikes. The battery-powered pedal assist provides a safe extra boost to your own pedal power, which can be useful for tackling hills, or simply for going farther.
