Bike Assembly, Boxing, and Shipping Services

Visiting Boston and can’t be without your bike? Have a big ride planned that can only be accomplished on your own two wheels? Going on a trip, or moving out of town? Whatever your situation, we’re happy to offer bike boxing and shipping services.


Bike Flights

We are also a Bike Flights Top Shop, meaning we can ship your bike anywhere within the United States directly from our shop!


Ship Your Bike to Urban Cycles

  • Plan to have your bike arrive at Urban Cycles a week before you’ll need it.
  • Call us at 617-670-0637 to arrange shipment.
  • Please have your bike shipped to:

    Urban Cycles
    C/O Service Department
    109 Atlantic Ave
    Boston, MA 02110

  • Once we receive your bike, we’ll assemble and test ride it to ensure that it’s safe and ready to ride.
  • Need a tune up before the event? We’re more than happy to assist! Please let us know what you need when you call the shop to arrange shipment.
  • If for whatever reason the bike comes missing pieces (unfortunately, this happens) or we discover the bike was damaged during shipment, we’ll always call you to authorize any further work done on your bike.

Expected Cost: $100


Have Our Mechanics Pack Your Bike to Ship

  • Drop your bike off with plenty of time for it to be packed and shipped to your destination. We recommend budgeting 3 days in the shop plus whatever time it’ll take to ship to your destination to be safe.
  • If you’re shipping through a service like BikeFlights and they provide you with a box, great! Just bring it along with your bike.
  • If you need a box for your bike, we have them available for $25.
  • Once we have the bike packaged for shipment, you can pick it up yourself or have your preferred shipping company pick it up from the shop.
  • Want us to take care of shipping? We’re happy to arrange shipping from the shop for you for a small handling fee.

Expected Cost (including box): $130 + shipping

Please note: we are unable to coordinate international shipping, however we’re happy to box the bike and have it picked up from the shop.


Coming Into Town for a Charity Ride?

Ship your bike to Urban Cycles! Since we’ll be unpacking and repackaging your bike for the ride, expect to spend approximately $160 plus shipping and handling. If it’s a ride we’re offering delivery to, we’re more than happy to meet you there with your bike for a $25 delivery fee (delivery fee is one-way, space allowing).

If you’re coming to town for the ride but don’t want to ship your bike, don’t forget that we offer a number of high-quality bike rentals, one of which we’re sure will be perfect for your ride.

Any questions? Feel free to call the bike shop at 617-670-0637 and we’ll be more than happy to help you out!
