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
412-600-0675

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.
