Starting a bike rental business requires a lot of planning, preparation, and setting up processes.
First, you need to make a business plan. Your business plan includes a description of your business, market and competitor analysis, financial plan, and marketing plan. It is also important to consider how you will organize your rental shop processes such as inventory management, order processing, and bike maintenance on your premises.

In general, a bike rental business can be very profitable and enjoy high profit margins. Still, just like with any business, profitability comes down to your business's income and expenditure structure. It is also worth noting that cycling is a seasonal activity in many countries, which should be taken into account when assessing the profit potential of a business.
Incomes are primarily determined by whether there is a demand for bike rental services in your area. One of the essential factors in ensuring demand is location. Inventory, business space, insurance, and staff salaries are typically the most significant expenses.
