the best truckee-LAKE TAHOE MOUNTAIN bike rentals

SEPTEMBER 13, 2020 UPDATE: Numerous wildfires continue to burn across Northern California have had an impact on air quality here in the greater Lake Tahoe area. In addition, there is an active statewide National Forest closure impacting access and use of many of our area trails. We encourage you to monitor the conditions before and after placing your reservation. Our 48-hour cancellation policy is still in effect so use your best judgement when determining if, when & where you choose to ride.

In addition, we have sold most of our rental fleet for the season so our inventory is limited at the moment. As our 2021 fleet arrives, we will be adding those bikes to this page as they become available to rent.

Take the guesswork out of your trip to Tahoe, leave your bike at home, and pick up a top notch rental from Dirt Gypsy.

Surrounded by world class trails and unpaved roads, we've spent time doing our homework and have chosen the bikes best suited for the variety of terrain in and around Truckee and Lake Tahoe.


We have 2019 & 2020 model year bikes from Giant & Liv, all professionally-maintained and competitively-priced. Traveling with your bike can often be expensive and a real headache, so don't go mental - stick with a rental!

A credit card number is taken when booking online or by phone to guarantee your reservation. Payment in full by cash or credit card is due when you pick up your equipment. We will only charge your credit card if you do not call to cancel at least 48 hours before your scheduled rental. If you fail to do so, we will bill your card for each day of the reservation. All cancellations need to be done by phone or in writing (sent to us by e-mail), more than 48 hours in advance. Please understand that we have a limited inventory and to ensure our bikes be enjoyed by everyone we need to adhere to the above policy.

A valid ID and credit card must be present at the time of rental pickup to serve as a deposit on the equipment. Rentals must be paid in full before leaving the shop.


See individual bike details above for sizing guidelines. Note that you may fall in between sizes - if you see that a certain frame is close to fitting your build, but are unsure then feel free  to call with any questions.

What's Included

All  of our bikes come with flat (platform) pedals. We are happy to install your personal pedals (clipless or otherwise) when you pick up your rental. We have a few pairs of Shimano SPD clipless pedals available on request for no additional charge. Each rental also includes a helmet, small tool kit with a spare tube for your most common repairs, and water bottle cages (if frame size allows). We are happy to offer up suggested trails and rides to consider and can share digital route maps with you upon request.

Rental Period, Early Pickup & Late Fees

RENTAL PERIOD: Half day, full day & multi-day rental durations are available. A Half Day is from 9am-1pm or 1:30pm-5:30pm. A Full Day is from 9am to 5:30pm. For half day rentals being picked up at 9am, they must be returned by 1pm. For half day rentals being picked up at 1:30pm, they must be returned by 5:30pm. For full day rentals, bikes must be returned by 5:30pm. No Exceptions!


EARLY PICKUP: An early pickup can be arranged for $20 per bike if you are interested in getting your bike(s) the evening before your rental date. You must call to request this and we will do our best to accommodate


LATE RETURNS: No after hours or late returns are allowed. We spend considerable time inspecting, cleaning and tuning rentals after they are returned and need bikes back at the prescribed time to prepare them for the next customer. We will strictly abide to our late fee policy (see below). If you are uncertain about your outing and how long your ride will take, err on the side of caution and consider an early pickup or full day rental. After reading this, please call us if you need to modify your rental before pickup.

LATE FEES: A late fee of $25 will be applied for rentals returned on the same day after the specified return time. An overnight fee of $50 will be charged for each bike that is not returned until the next morning before 9am. The overnight fee for bikes returned the following morning after 9am or for any e-bike returned the next day is equal to that of a full day rental. We require the evening to fully recharge batteries for the following day rental. An e-bike returned to us at 9am with a partially or zero battery charge is bad news for everyone.

Guided Rides

If you are interested in booking a guided tour with your bike rental, you can call us and book over the phone. You may also book directly online from our tours page. Once you determine which tour to join, be sure to choose the button indicating 'book tour w/ bike'.

Waivers & Your Responsibility

Before you can leave with your rental, you must complete and sign our liability and damage waiver. Waivers can be accessed online from the booking confirmation email sent to you or completed in person during pickup. While the bikes we rent are strong and durable, you are responsible for any damage to the frame or components due to crashes, improper transport and misuse.

Processing Fees

Our online booking system makes the reservation process simple and easy.  We like that. There is a small processing fee applied to all online bookings, but you can avoid these by simply picking up the phone and giving us a call to place your reservation. Our rentals number is 1-844-464-9779 ext. 3
