New Bike Shop Offering Rentals, Sales, and Service to Open in the Heart of Colonial Williamsburg
Bike the Burg, offering rentals for families and individuals since July of 2017, is now adding sales and service as they move to their new location, a short ride from Colonial Williamsburg and the Colonial Parkway at 170-A Second Street.
Owner Wolt Stryker, a Williamsburg native, says he’s always felt that one of the best ways to explore our historic city is by bike. “Making bike rentals available so close to town is a great opportunity for tourists and locals.” Stryker goes on, “locals can have a simple and easy family outing or bring their guests to see Williamsburg in a whole new way. We handle the logistics and do the heavy lifting, so adventure seeking families stop in, pick out a bike and set off exploring.”
Bike the Burg offers comfort cruisers, both single and multi-speed. They have men’s, women’s, kids bikes and trailers for the little ones. And with tandem and electric bikes as well as adult tricycles, Bike the Burg has something for everyone to see the sights like they never have before.
“While we have only been open for about a year, we have been thrilled with the support from the community and from literally all over the world,” said Stryker. “We have had families from as far away as Scotland, the Netherlands and the UK and as close as our own backyard. This has been a great experience for us to meet so many people from all over the world.” Through August, all kids under 12, get a free ice cream with a rental.
Bike the Burg is also introducing a unique service program for locals; free pick-up and delivery in qualifying areas. The Bike the Burg staff will work with customers to pick up, service, and return your bike to your home or business. “We recognized that many people don’t have vehicles they can throw their bike into and bring to us for service, so we’ll come to you”, said Stryker.
Bike the Burg is an authorized dealer of several bike lines including Fuji and Del Sol, both established bike lines not currently available in Williamsburg. And with a full line of accessories from helmets to bells to bike locks, Bike the Burg is a full service bike shop.
Bike the Burg is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm and Sundays, noon to 5pm. Bikes rent by the hour, day, or week. Always on call for bike rental and service. Call 757.570.7326 to schedule service, pick-up or service or to schedule a rental. Visit www.BiketheBurg.net for more information.
