There are many bike rental places all around the country. Bike/Sports Shops, Hotels/Campsites, and Tourist Information Centers are the three most common places. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to navigate some websites, and information is often poorly presented. Below you will find a map with rental companies located in major population areas where most people will start or end their journey. For more specific areas such as famous gravel routes, we have highlighted them in the ‘famous areas’ section.
The costs vary depending on the type of bike and rental length. Basic bikes can start at around 25 euros a day and premium bikes can be up to 85 euros. Some companies include helmets, puncture repair kits, and pedals in the price. Others charge extra. Ideally, you should bring your own pedals if renting a premium road bike and we recommend everyone bring or rent a high-quality light set (for the tunnels and main roads). Lastly, only a handful of places offer bike bag rental. We have highlighted the ones we’re aware of below.

Plenty of locations to rent a bike: https://en.visitostnorge.no/mjostrakk/plan-your-trip/rent-a-bike
Two big chain sports shops in Norway both do bike rentals from many of their locations. Unfortunately, this is poorly communicated especially with Inter Sport and you may need to ring the specific store and ask if they rent bikes.
Sports 1 Bike Rental Stores: https://www.sport1.no/sykkelutleie/
Inter-Sport International Page has information about bike rental all over Europe with the exception of Norway! https://www.intersportrent.com/en
Search for a Inter Sport in the town you require a bike from and phone them! https://www.intersport.no/stores
Like in many other countries if you would like to explore a city there is no better way than to jump on a city bike. Many towns and cities in Norway have these available. Usually, you just need to download an app and go pick one up at the many bike stations around the city.
There are many Summer Mountain Bike Resorts in Norway and they always offer bike rental for MTB and Full Suspension.

Norway is filled with bike repair shops. You will find many choices in the cities and every small town will have at least one place to get basic repairs.
I can only recommend the ones I’ve used which are limited but you should expect many of the chain sports shops to offer a good standard of service and repair throughout Norway. In the community forum, you can ask for specific recommendations based on the location you require.
Please note bike repair services can be expensive in Norway as the average wages are perhaps higher than in most other European countries. My advice is to have your bike serviced at home before arriving as this will reduce any problems occurring on the road.
If you use Google to search for a nearby bike workshop the Norwegian word is ‘sykkelverksted’
