    Renting in Innsbruck or Interlaken

    I am sitting here at my hostel in Cesky Krumlov debating whether to rent a mountain bike that is to small for me...

    Next week I will be in Innsbruck, and the week after I will be near Interlaken. Does anybody know of good shops that could rent me a road bike? All the places I have seen only rent mountain bikes. I would like to find a place with a wide selection because I would really like to find a 60cm or 63cm bike.

    Thanks!

    I don't know about Innsbruck but I was in Interlaken recently and saw several shops that rented bikes and lots of people riding around town with rented bikes. I looked at one line-up of bikes next to a rental stand and most of them looked like mountain bikes but not all of them. I think you should be fine there. By the way, it is a beautiful place!

    I had my own bike with me and didn't try to rent a bike.

    I struck out in Innsbruck, and skipped Switzerland for lack of funds. I did get some riding in while I was in Slovenia though! Now I am in Croatia, with Greece, Turkey, Egypt on the horizon. My riding days may be over for a while...

    Sorry to hear you are not able to ride; there are many nice cycling opportunities in those areas.

    Right now I am traveling with my wife, which is great but without much cycling opportunity. I plan to come back with a friend in a few years and attack some more of those mountain passes...
