A true destination
… for cyclists in Fort Myers near Sanibel, the Bike Bistro has a “vibe” that resonates with bicycle riders of all types. From our comfortable chairs and hand-built fixtures, to the custom roasted Bistro Blend Java, no detail is too small. We turn that attention to our customers and the services we provide. Whether your bicycle needs a basic tune up, a complete restoration or anything in between, the Bike Bistro can perk up your ride.
The Bike Bistro offers every level of bicycle as well. We carry Bianchi and Felt Bicycles with styles from pedal-forward cruisers to hybrid bikes, road bikes, and triathalon bikes. Experience the ease of an electric bike from Felt or Prodecotech. Need a little more room? Try our Tern Folding bikes. Seeking an upgrade from that “big-brand” bike, take a ride on a titanium Litespeed road bike, handmade in the USA. We service all brands of bicycles and also have bicycle rentals by the day to month-long. Stop in the Bike Bistro, your bicycle shop in Fort Myers, to see what we have for you, or contact us now by email.

on the competition.
