Take me around New york by bike, please :-)

Hello hello,

I'm Mohamed from Manchester, England (and Palestine). I'm visiting New York for 10 days and one thing I would really like to do is spend a day (or two) cycling around, most preferably with someone who calls New York home.

So, do any of you kindred avid cyclists have a spare bike I can borrow and more importantly some spare time to take me somewhere interesting in NY. Somewhere off the beaten tourist trail, maybe a centre for social activists or a small neighbourhood bike project or just checking out an interesting far flung part of New York that you only get to if you've lived there for yonks!

Also, any advice on where to rent a bike on a shoestring would be much appreciated. I went to Belgium last summer and there was a university scheme where you could rent a bike for a whole week for about $25.

Looking forward to rolling with you,

Thanks Zac! I'm still trying to sort out a bike, but have a couple of good leads for bike loans so watch this space :D

If anyone has a bike that I could borrow I'd really appreciate it. My number is 917-374-2925.
