Glacier National Park Bike Rental: Regular Bikes
Diamondback Metric3 Sizing– $65/day
(Elevation climbing and light in weight, perfect for Going-to-the-Sun Road)

- XL = 6′1 – 6’4
Diamondback Metric 3 Bicycle: Riding the line between a lightweight, nimble road bike for speed and a mountain bike for sturdy, stable handling in a more upright position, the Metric 3 is designed well for the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The 700c wheels and custom alloy frame keep the ride quick and efficient while flat handlebars give you that mountain bike stability. This all-around street bike offers fast and smooth 35c tires that are wide enough to tackle any obstacles the pavement throws at you. With a Shimano Acera 3 X 9 speed drivetrain, and strong double wall wheels, you’ll always be equipped for your next adventure.
Redux 2 Bike Sizing – $35/day.
(Perfect for Camas Road or bike paths)
- Medium – 5’4 – 5’7
- Large – 5’6 – 6′
- Extra-Large – 5’9 – 6’4
Raleigh Redux 2: Nimble like a mountain bike but made for the street, this bike is the ultimate multiuse machine ideal for shorter rides to Apgar and the Camas Road. Designed with a lightweight aluminum frame and fork, the Redux 2 is light but durable enough for riding a mountain road. You get a 1 X 9 speed drivetrain, a larger diameter handlebar, and hydraulic disc brakes for optimal stopping power. This bike is smooth-shifting and low-maintenance with the ultimate braking power in wet and dirty conditions. Big all-terrain tires roll over almost anything in their path.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE BIKES?
The Diamondback Metric3 has much better climbing ability than the Raleigh Redux2 because of the gear ratio.

Battery should last for 45 plus miles if used properly.
Raleigh Retroglide iE E-Bike
Retroglide Bike Sizing
- One size fits most, 5′ – 5’10”
Raleigh Retrograde E-Bike: With an upright frame geometry, ergonomic handlebars, and a large padded seat the Raleigh Retroglide is the most comfortable E-bike in our fleet. In addition to the added comfort, it has the power to match with a class 3 400Wh battery and a Bosch Active line motor. Think of it as the luxury model in our line up. Battery should last 45 plus miles if used properly.
RadRunner 2 Bike Sizing
- One size fits most, 4′11″ – 6’2”
Radrunner E-Bike: Built for utility it sports massive nobby tires, an easy access step through frame, a 20 lb. front facing basket, and a built in rear rack. Perfect for adventurers who play it by ear and are ready for anything, the Radrunner has the power and versatility to get you and your gear to the top! Battery should last 45 plus miles if used properly. Keep in mind that due to the low easy access step through frame this e-bike does not fit on any of the bike carriers that we rent out. So it works best for exploring the bike trails starting at our headquarters.
FAQ: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE E-BIKES?
All of our E-bikes are very well suited to ride on Going-to-the-Sun Road. The Diamondback and Retroglides fit on the bike carrier we offer for rent with no more than 2 bikes at a time. However, the Radrunner will fit on our shuttle trailer but does not fit on the bike carrier we rent out.

What’s OK + What’s Not OK With Our Glacier National Park Bike & E-Bike Rentals
- E-biker riders/renters must be 18 and up.
- Our bikes and e-bikes are suited for paved roads in Glacier. They are not suited for dirt roads, gravel roads, or trails.
- Please keep our bikes on Glacier’s paved roads — some of these are pretty rough, and that’s okay, but we do recommend you opt in for our damage insurance.
- Damage insurance is $7/day bike and $17/day/e-bike.
- Occasionally, due to global supply chain issues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, we may have to substitute one type of rental bike for another. If you are unhappy with that substitution, we will happily refund you. We do not expect this scenario to occur often.
- Repair kit with extra tube, in case of a flat (one per rental party)
Rent Bike Carriers
We rent bike carriers, too! $30 for 1 to 2 days, several options to fit a variety of cars. We only rent bike carriers to carry our bikes, FYI. Only 2 e-bikes will fit on each carrier. And while we are happy to help you install bike carriers, you assume responsibility for any damage incurred to the bike carrier, bikes, and your vehicle, in said installation/uninstallation and while they are in your possession.

BE ADVISED THAT THERE ARE BIKE RESTRICTIONS ON THE GOING-TO-THE-SUN ROAD FROM JUNE 15 THROUGH LABOR DAY EACH YEAR. READ UP ON THOSE HERE.
*RENTING A BIKE FROM US DOES NOT GUARANTEE A VEHICLE RESERVATION FOR THE PARK.*
A VEHICLE RESERVATION IS NOT THE SAME THING AS A PARK PASS
OUR GLACIER NATIONAL PARK BIKE RENTAL PERIOD IS:
SPRING AND SUMMER – 7:30AM TO 6PM.
FALL – 8:30AM TO 6PM.
BIKES RETURNED AFTER THE STATED TIME WILL BE CHARGED ANOTHER FULL DAY’S RENTAL FEE.
Please reserve an extra day if you’d like to ride earlier or later than our stated rental period. We need time to prepare the bikes for the next lucky riders. Don’t derail their experience, and yes, you can laugh at our pun! But, do be considerate of other people while you’re enjoying your adventure in Glacier National Park, and know that we encouraged the previous riders, and those following you to also be respectful of time and equipment.
