ABSOLUTE BIKES SEDONA
Absolute Bikes Sedona is another popular shop with different locations in Salida and Flagstaff under the same brand but different ownership. What we like about Absolute Bike Sedona is that they rent a variety of types of bikes from road bikes, e-bikes, kids bikes, and racks. So if you’re looking for one shop that will please anyone in the group, whether a roadie or a mountain biker or someone that just wants to cruise around the city, head to Absolute Bikes.
- 4.8 ⭐️ (82 reviews)
- Brands carried: Specialized, Marin, Pivot
- Rental period: daily rentals
- What we love: You can rent a road bike, a cruiser, or an e-bike in their centrally located store on the south side of Sedona.
- We do wish they had instant online booking to reduce some booking time, they do take online reservations and you can check availability based on a google sheet, but that’s a lot of work for the user.

Sedona Mountain Biking
Absolutely! There are plenty of green/easy trails to ride around Sedona BUT you have to make sure that you know where they are and don't start with trails that may be over your ability/skill level. You can always ask any of the bike shops and they'll point you in the right direction. If you are looking to improve your mountain biking skills, we highly recommend taking a lesson with Sedona Mountain Biking Academy, their team of coaches can get you or your group out on the trails having a blast after just a few hours of important skills training.
All of the bike shops listed on this page rent kids' bikes. We're glad you're getting the little ones out there! We highly recommend trying a family mountain biking lesson from Sedona Mountain Biking Academy. It's a great way to learn new skills that will improve your mountain biking experience, give you more confidence and you get a discounted bike rental included in the lesson if you need to rent one.
If you are going to do any of the intermediate or advanced trails, we highly recommend trying a full-suspension mountain bike. The trails in Sedona are rocky and the extra suspension is definitely worth the upgrade since it will make the ride much more comfortable and also allow you to have more fun. But don't worry, if your budget doesn't allow for a full-suspension rental, there are trails that you can ride and have a blast on with a hardtail as well.
No, you are not allowed to ride e-bikes on MTB trails in Sedona, but you can always rent one and take them on the dirt roads and OHV trails nearby which are a lot of fun! We recommend renting from e-trek Adventures in Sedona. You can also do a tour of Sedona on the e-bikes, it's a great way to explore the different trail heads and beat the traffic!
