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 expansive rental fleet make Velorution Cycles the 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 probably 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.
For the bikes, that works out to $560; 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.
