    Does anyone know where I can rent a couple of bikes for the day? My wife’s parents are coming to town over the 4th of July and we want to take them on a bike tour of the city and then to see some fireworks. Problem is we only have two bikes. We need two more. The only thing I can find is this:

    We might use this as a last resort but at $45 per bike it seems a little pricey. We could rent a Cadillac for $90. If you know of another place in town that rents bikes please let me know.

    Thanks

    Third hand bike co-op. thirdhand.org I actually helped work on one of their rentals.

    Me and Mercurious have two bikes in awesome working order that we can maybe lend you.

    Your generous offer prompted me to just start asking neighbors if they had some bikes I could borrow. Thanks, you saved me $90!

    Any ideas on a ride I could take two people in their 50s (both in good shape and trail bike riders) starting at Walhalla ravine?

    Th Wahalla Ravine is a great spot, but rather brief. I would suggest German Village, especially if you have fat tire bikes. The Olentangy Trail trough Clintonville is scenic.

    This made me think of another business for someone to start downtown….LEASE BIKES or get that bike vending machine installed in the Northmarket. People could be on a new every two year plan with bikes and upcharge them for service plans.

    :oops:

    I usually am pretty good about skimming through and making sure I don’t repeat info already presented. Probably hadn’t had my coffee yet that day…
