OK, I'm going to leave my decade old corporate job real soon and open a bike rental business. I live in a good location, have a good part of the business plan worked out: start with a good but small location, 30 to 50 new bikes from trail to cruise, hybrids, some kid trailers and maybe a couple of tandems, have worked out the financials, including investments, utilities, charges, liability insurance, marketing etc. I even have experience in this field, (ok that's about twenty years ago..) Has anyone in this forum done this ? Would be interested in hearing success / failure stories or just good stories. Also feedback from anyone on what they expect from bike rental shops, they like and cannot find etc.
Sorry if I bored you with this topic. Thanks.
