Can I rent a bike in the Bahamas?

Cycles Unlimited on Mackey Street, Nassau has a limited number of bicycles for rent. Please contact them directly by calling 242-393-0155.
For those of you bringing your bike in from overseas, it is highly advised that you contact your airline ahead of time to confirm their ability to accept bikes. Local airlines work with Ride for Hope organizers to ensure that bikes in carry cases are accepted, but it is wise to reconfirm this ahead of time.

Is Ride for Hope a weekend or a day event?

It is both! While the Ride itself is on Saturday, March 9, 2019 RFH activities begin on Friday, March 8, 2019 with our popular High Carb Dinner. Check our full schedule for more details.

What can I do if I’m not riding?

Volunteer to help! If you’re going with family or friends to the Ride For Hope but not riding yourself we’d love to have you help us. There are a number of ways you can do so. It’s rewarding and also a lot of fun. Please contact us if you are interested in being a part of the event as a volunteer.
