Most of the rentals are entry level road bikes, where you can find them at all.
You're going to have to call some shops.
Are you planning on visiting Acadia? There is a shop
on the corner going into town that rents road bikes.
It's a nice place.
There is also a good bike shop in Camden, they do rentals, but
I never asked.
You can also try Bath Cycle and Ski (bikeman.com) and Allspeed in Portland.
I like the bike shops in Portsmouth, but I've never done business down there.
I like the Blue Hill area and the Schoodic Peninsula for riding.
Do you love hills? If you do, you can ride up to Monroe, take a left to Brooks,
and then another left. There are loong glacial hills coming out of Brooks that
slowly get steeper. They're cruel. They trick you into maintaining speed and cadence,
but they're longer than they look and slowly get steeper. So your legs burn,
and then they burn a lot.
There are few stores (or anything) so bring lots of water and snacks and get more in Brooks.
