Our rental season is from late April through mid-October, with daily rentals until Labor Day and weekends only thereafter. We will also rent on Monday, October 8, which is Columbus Day. Our fleet includes a variety of bikes, carts, and even wagons. Rentals are weather-permitting. We strongly suggest calling our office at 630-968-0074 before you head out to the Arboretum to see if rentals are being offered that day.
BIke rentals are closed for the 2018 season. Learn More
