    Bike Rental Shop in Colorado ?

    Hello....Iīm from Germany....I want to visit Colorado in August.

    Does anyone from Denver/Boulder/Col.Springs/etc. knows a good shop for bike rental, not to expensive?
    Until now I just found shops with prices over 200$ per week per Bike. For two persons and three weeks vacation thatīs a lot
    of money.

    Or are there any other possibilities to get two race bikes for 2-3 weeks?

    Thanks

    My wife have ridden in France several times since 2010. We found that British Airways will carry bikes free if box and bike are under 23Kg

    MunichMan, I couldn't find any rentals around here for even $200 a week. I concur with randallr that you should consider bringing your own bicycles.

    I emailed paulscyclery twice but he didnīt answer.
    But Iīve got an offer for 150 per week in Col. Springs (Tedīs Cyclery). Maybe I take this one.

    Unfortunately itīs not possible to take my bike from Germany to the US because Iīve got three different flights until I arrive in Denver.

    i'm surprised I've met and talked to paul a few times on bike to work day AND rode with a cyclist frm Canada that rented from paul and was very pleased
    I had the impression he'd be the type that would work with you
