Don't listen to negative reviews about bike quality. It's a rental bike. It needs to work, but you're not going to ride it that far, and the whole place is flat. I rented three belt drive bikes with gears and baskets. We rode them about...More

I would caution anyone against renting a bike from Affordabike, and if their customer service, quality and attitude about rentals could relate to bikes they sell, then I'd caution against buying here as well. I'm an experienced (though hardly professional) road rider, who rides about...More

Make a reservation the day before, or come by right when they open in the morning--the hybrid bikes go fast. This is absolutely the best way to see historic Charleston--at least, when the weather is fair. Better than the horse carriages--they only last one hour,...More

A steady, reliable bastion of calm, assertive service overlooking the wild frontier of King Street. All conquests of Charleston begin at Affordabike.

Rented some great belt drive bikes to peddle over to Mt. Pleasant across the Arthur Ravenel bridge. Fun excursion and bikes were perfectly geared for the slight climb and with baskets.
