NEW! Mountain Bike Rentals

Outdoor Pursuits has partnered with the Outdoor Recreation Council of Appalachia (ORCA) in order to provide OHIO students, community members, and visitors with quality mountain bike rentals beginning Feb. 5th, 2024. Pricing information below. 

These bikes are perfect for riding:

  • Around campus
  • On the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway 
  • On the trails at Strouds Run and Lake Hope State Parks
  • On the Bailey's Trail System (closed to bikes for the Winter)

If you're hoping to ride the Bailey's Trail System but don't have a bike rack, bike rentals are also available for pick-up in Chancy where you can ride directly from the rental store to the trails in less than a mile. Visit for more information.
