Really enjoyed the top notch service that Mark provided. He is simply a kind soul and knowledgeable about everything bike related. We rented bikes for a week and he went the distance to make sure we had everything (brand new fitted bikes, extra tubes, tools, pump, etc.) we need to make our trip fun and memorable. Would highly recommend 3rd coast! They are the best in town!!!!

This is our flat-bar option for the Triathlon. These are mostly steel and aluminum frames with mid-range hybrid components. We recommend this category to less experienced riders who are more budget-minded or seeking more comfort and control.
This category is for our entry-level road bikes. These are typically steel or aluminum frames which are well suited for group rides or touring Chicago. We recommend this category to those that want to experience a road bike but are looking for budget pricing.
This is our largest category, which contains our mid-range road bikes. These bikes are aluminum or carbon fiber frames with mid-level componentry. We recommend this category to more serious riders looking for a great bike to train with, hit a local club ride, or just tour this impressive biking town.
This category represents the best we have to offer, and some of the best rental bikes in the city. These bikes have carbon fiber or titanium frames with higher-end componentry.

What Our Previous Happy Customers Say
One of the best bike-renting experiences I have had. A friend and I needed to rent bikes for a few days for a trip from Chicago to Milwaukee and beyond. We found 3rd Coast which had the perfect solution: excellent rental rates, excellent bicycles (brand new – we watched him assemble them), extremely friendly personal service from a very knowledgable bike-guy!
