Rent tour bike in Pennsylvania ?
« on: November 21, 2009, 05:28:52 pm »
   My wife and I will be traveling to Penn in April. We are going for an unrelated activity and might wish to take the time to do a week bike ride, but won't be able to deal with shipping our bikes. Is there anyplace where we might rent a pair of touring bikes and panniers or perhaps mtn bikes and a single track towing setup? We don't need to rent Bruce Gordon bikes but neither do we want junkers. We are 60 yrs old and definitely want triples/touring or mtn bikes. She needs a pretty small frame. Any recommendation on bike shops with decent bikes to rent for a week. We could probably travel to anywhere in PA to get them, then do something like an Allegheny ride for a few days.

There is a bicycle rental place right in downtown Pittsburgh that rents cruisers, hybrids and road bikes.  It's:
Golden Triangle Bicycle Rental
600 1st Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15219

They are located right on the Eliza Furnace Trail (aka "The Jail Trail" as it goes right by the county prison) and the trail is a good start as it connects to many others.
