Looking to ride some of Durango's sweet trails but don't have a bike? Want to try out bikepacking before you buy all the gear? Or looking to do the San Juan Hut Systems DGO-to-Moab route? No problem. We've got you covered with our high-quality fleet of rental bikes and bikepacking gear!
Our trailhead location and rental fleet make Velorution Cycles a premier rental source in the Four Corners area. Whether you want to ride Durango's trails for a few hours or a few days, we've got you covered.
Demo Program: We keep a new and relevant demo fleet to allow you to narrow down what bike you want on an actual trail. After all, you won't be riding your bike exclusively in parking lots. Though we can't have every model and size covered we strive to have what you need to figure out the size and style that will work best for you! At the end of the model year (October-ish) most of that years demo bikes will be put up for sale to keep the new year's demos current. This is a great time to find a great deal on a great bike. All demos and rentals are regularly gone through with a fine tooth comb to keep them running in a like-new condition.
San Juan Hut Systems Riders: We work closely with San Juan Hut Systems to provide rental bikes for their Durango > Moab hut route. Need a bike, bike and gear combo, or just the bikepacking gear? We can help you with that. For the full nine-day trip (7 days riding, 2 days travel), we only charge 8 days at the multi-day rate for bikes or gear. We offer 2 types of bikes for the San Juan Hut Trips (or bikepacking rentals in general) that are ideal for the extended miles and terrain you will be traversing. Our hardtail option, the 2018 Salsa Timberjack GX1 is a simple and robust option without dropper post that allows for larger seatbags to be used. Rental fee for 3+ days including a frame bag is $65/day. Our full suspension option is the 2018 Norco Optic A2. This dropper post equipped option will be more capable than the Salsa Timberjack on singletrack but has less storage space due to the dropper post and smaller main triangle. Rental fee for the Optic for 3+ days is $75/day including a frame bag.
For the bikes, that works out to $520 or $600 with framebag included; and for the gear, it's an additional $240-320.
We have a LIMITED NUMBER of bikepacking-use rental bikes and bikepacking gear, so if you want to ensure a rental for a given SJHS trip, book early! Contact SJHS or us for more information.
