Remember Dan Sloan? He’s the nice guy who set up a bike repair stand on N Williams Ave and propped up a sign that said, “Free Bike Help + Advice.”

Now Sloan has launched a more formal endeavor: Everybody’s Bike Rentals.

“We provide classy, vintage, and affordable bike rentals for folks who need a bike for a day, a week, or a month,” reads an email Sloan sent out yesterday to friends and supporters about his new business.

Sloan, who’s been building bikes for himself and friends for years, says he noticed a lack of bike rental options in North and Northeast Portland. His new shop is located near the busy Going Street Neighborhood Greenway at NE Alberta and 19th street.

Rates are reasonable ($25 a day for a commuter bike) and he’s got a good selection of both city and more speedy road bikes. All rentals come with a helmet, lock and a set of lights.

Learn more at or call (503) 893-4519 to reserve bikes.
