Dandy Horse Bike Repair and Rental Service

Dandy Horse Bike Repair and Rental Service

Dandy Horse Bicycles started in my yard with the interest of helping my community by supporting sustainable and healthy transportation. With the rise of demand, Dandy Horse Bicycles grew in status and branched out to provide other services. Retail sales and bicycle rentals now form a large portion of revenue for my company and have provided a needed service on Cortes Island. Dandy Horse was registered as a sole proprietorship in August 2013. My company serves both the year round cycling community and caters to the needs of tourists in the summer season. If I help one person get on a bike and ride then I have succeeded in making the world a better place.

Dandy Horse takes pride in providing quality service work. We are equipped to perform repairs on any brand of bike, from modern to vintage. Bring your bike in, we’ll give you an estimate and get it back to you as soon as possible. We have an extensive range of new and used parts in stock and we can special order most other items and get them in within 10 days.

Note: during the peak cycling season our repair queue can lengthen for major service work. We do offer an appointment-based system though so you don’t have to part ways with your bike for too long. If your bike is ridable, bring it in and we will evaluate the work to be done, write up a work order, schedule a date for your bike in our queue and send you on your way. On the day before your appointment bring your bike back — it will be returned a day or two later.

Dandy Horse Bikes exists to serve the Cortes community. If a resident of or visitor to Cortes Island is experiencing hard financial times, talk to us. We’ll arrange for alternative forms of payments, trades, payment plans or waiving of service fees. Dandy Horse will not refuse service due to lack of funds.
