bike for use/rent
Posted October 29th, 2009 - 7:49 am by from San Francisco, United States (Permalink)
Hello all!

I've been wanting to join you all on a ride...however, I am without a bike!

Does anyone have a spare road bike they could lend me for the next group ride, or know of a place that would rent them hourly/daily?

Thanks for any thoughts...
Maggie

Hi Maggie,

I don't have a spare bike, but I could lend you my road bike if I'm not cycling myself on the particular day. It might be too high for you though (I'm 1,86m) ... and it has clip-in pedals. Still, if you want to look at it let me know. I never use it during the week.

As for places that rent road bikes (... or more leisurely city bikes) try this:

Probably also worth asking in one of the big bike stores:

Finally, there are also cycling groups on www.meetup.com if you're looking for regular outings. I'd also be happy to join myself, depending on the day/time.
