Bike rental business
Hey folks, I live in a small rural community with a fairly steady flow of tourists in the summer. I am getting ready to open up a bike rental shop out of the back of my house. I plan to start out with about a dozen or so older model mountain bikes that are in decent shape. There are definetly challenging trails to be ridden in the area, but for starters I am focusing on just making bikes available to the folks who might want to explore the area along some of the many quite gravel and dirt roads outside their cars. Does anyone have experience renting bikes or working for this type of business? I'm wondering what kind of insurance I should have ( Is a simple waiver good enough)? How would i go about acquiring a fleet of newer brand name bikes? Any input or ideas about this would be appreciated.! Thanks.
