    Visitor to Holmes County OH needs advice

    Hi all,
    I'm a transplanted Millersburger now living in SoCal. When I lived in Holmes County in my teen years gone by I was not a cycler, but now I'm kicking myself because the roads there are so beautiful. I'm visiting my mother next week so I'm trying to figure out how to score a bike to ride. If anyone knows of a place likely to have a small (I'm female and 5'2", tops) road-ish sort of bike to rent to me I'd love to know about it, but I'm not counting on that. I'm thinking of finding a Craigslist bike to buy somewhere between the Cleveland airport and Millersburg (I'd leave it in Millersburg for future visits). Right now I'm looking at these two listings:
    Trek 930
    and
    Schwinn CrissCross

    Anyone have any advice for me? If I go with one of these bikes, what should I offer for it? Is there a better idea for me?
    Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

    As of last year they rented bikes at the Millersburg Depot of the new Holmes County Trail. Contact info is on their page:
