About Us

Take a ride to C&O Bicycle!

C&O Bicycle is located in beautiful, small-town Hancock, Maryland. You will find us at mile marker 124.5 of the C&O Canal, an old towpath used to transport freight from Georgetown to Cumberland. We are also at mile marker 10.7 on the Western Maryland Rail Trail, a 22.5-mile paved trail that provides a scenic route through the mountains, not over them.

Our unique shop offers bicycle rentals, repairs, and sales. We also have a screened-in bunkhouse for weary travelers to spend the night. Our general store is the perfect place to stop for a snack, a drink, or necessary supplies before hitting the trails.
