9 South Pennsylvania Avenue Hancock, MD 21750
General Store of the C&O Canal, an old towpath used to transport freight from Georgetown to Cumberland. We are also at mile marker 10.7 on the Western Maryland Rail Trail, a 22.5-mile paved trail that provides a scenic route through the mountains, not over them.
Our unique shop offers bicycle rentals, repairs, and sales. We also have a screened-in bunkhouse for weary travelers to spend the night. Our general store is the perfect place to stop for a snack, a drink, or necessary supplies before hitting the trails.
What makes C&O Bicycle unique?
We specialize in those specific items that you most need along the C&O Canal and Western Maryland Rail Trail (WMRT) like tires, helmets, saddles, panniers, racks, etc.
If you want to experience the C&O Canal or WMRT on your own bike, you can have it shipped to us. For a nominal fee, we will gladly assemble it and go over it before your journey. We can also have it boxed and shipped back to your home.
We are the unofficial C&O Canal/WMRT Visitors’ Center West! We are always happy to offer free advice, literature, and stories about how to experience our great area. We know the best restaurants, places to stay, and where to get an adult beverage after a long day! We love visitors!
