Arnold’s Bike Shop – Then and Now
Arnold’s Bike Shop is by far the oldest bike shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Arnold Dwyer founded Arnold’s Bike Shop in 1937 operating the shop personally for over 60 years.
In 1998, Arnold’s Bike Shop was sold to Arnold’s grandson Robert Beaton. Robb has operated it ever since. He works hard to maintain the hard earned reputation for friendly service, quality reliable rental bikes, and fairness over the decades.
Arnold’s Bike Shop is a full service bike shop conveniently located on Commercial Street, just east of famous McMillan Wharf in the very heart of Provincetown, Massachusetts.
We specialize in bike rentals, repairs, sales and accessories. Arnold’s Bike Shop is an authorized dealer for Giant Bicycles and the only authorized dealer for Raleigh Bicycles in Provincetown. We have well over 400 rental bikes ranging from one-speed beach cruisers to seven-speed comfort bikes and 7 speed bikes and 21 speed road bikes as well as tandem bikes, hybrid bikes and mountain bikes.
All of our rentals are less than 4 years old and dozens of new rental bikes purchased every year. All bicycle rentals come with a lock, rear rack and bungee cord making it easier to carry bags, beach towels and other items. Bike trail maps and bicycle helmets are provided at no additional cost.
Our head mechanic has been with the company for 23 consecutive years and is always available. We realize that sometimes even after you leave our bike shop, things can sometimes go wrong. Therefore, we provide emergency assistance during normal business hours.
We will either fix the bike wherever you may be, or give you a new one. Of course we will add extra time to your rental for your inconvenience. If you need a basket attached to a bike there is only a $2.00 fee.
Many other shops request a $200 deposit in order to rent a bike. At Arnold’s Bike Shop we only ask for a driver’s license or other positive ID.
For your convenience, Arnold’s also rents beach chairs, strollers, and umbrellas.
The owner of Arnold’s Bike Shop, Robb Beaton, is available 6 days a week for customers in need for special requests or have unique situations.
