Yellow Bike Rentals – Now Available at the Toronto Tool Library

Rent one of CBN’s iconic yellow bikes; comfortable and fun single-speed beach cruisers available now at the Toronto Tool Library’s Parkdale location; 1499 Queen Street West. These are the same bicycles CBN offered through the popular (and multiple award-winning) BikeShare program -and featured in a 2008 full-length film, Tales of a Yellow Bike!

A yellow bike rental is ideal if you’re just visiting the city as a tourist and want to do a little sightseeing by bike downtown and to Toronto Island or if you and a friend want to take part in a CBN event but one of you lacks a bike.

All of our rental bikes are equipped with a bell and reflectors. For your added safety, security and convenience, rental bikes also come with lights, a U-lock and a basket.


We charge $25 a day. You can also rent at a weekly rate of $100 (or take advantage of our Weekday Special – Tuesday to Friday 5pm for $75). The rental fee is paid up front. We also require a $50 damage deposit that you’ll get back with the bike’s safe return. Complete terms and conditions are available in-store.

Rentals can be picked up and dropped off at the Toronto Tool Library’s Parkdale location during their hours of operation.
