My hats off to care free. Personally I commute on my bike almost 100%. I still have cars because they are paid for. They mostly sit unused unless I have a lot to haul...
My question surrounds business travel. I have job that takes me to what I perceive as bike friendly places. Bay area and Sacramento. I am looking to find a way to take my next trip and not use a rental car. I was wondering if in these two areas if there is a bike rental company that rents by the week or daily. Is there anyone out there doing this? In the bay area, my offices are in San Leandro and San Ramon. I plan on spending most of my time in San Leandro. Once I was in Castro Valley and saw a bike rental shop. I will be close to the BART so that will be my long distance part of the commute and the rest will be on bike.
As for Sacramento, things are a bit more challenging because the office there is in West Sac. I can get there either by Cal Tran or car rental, but from the airport or train station, the travel is is bit more out of my comfort level by bike. I know of no places in SAC to pick up a bike. At home I know the area well but West Sac is not the most accessible place.
