Bike rentals in SW FLA?
Should have thought of this sooner: We're visiting friends in Punta Gorda for a few days, then moving on to Ft. Myers. I'd like to rent a decent (i.e., not a 50 lb Huffy) bike. Suggestions? Leaving Sunday. Nothing like planning, I know...

"People who spend most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles." - Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman
Call Acme, Bicycle Center, or Cycle Haus. I honestly don't know if any of them rent, but they are the 3 that come to mind in Port Charlotte.
Sanibel is pretty close to Fort Meyer. There are 3 bike shops on the island. I rented a road bike on the island. The bike path on the island is only 15 miles but I would do 2 lengths daily. Very nice riding. Although the island is crowded the bike path was not.
There is a LBS in Ft Myers called the Bike Route. Nice folks there, rented a CAAD 8 for $120 a week. They also have hybrids. Good luck.
