    Bike rental/bike share places close to Ithaca

    I will be in Ithaca, NY the end of July for a week. I was wondering if there are any places in the area that rent road bikes. Or if there is maybe a bike share program that somebody knows of.

    I would rather not take my bike with me since I also have to take a stroller and car seat.

    What kind of bike are you looking to rent? There are a couple shops in town that rent bikes.

    Also, I have a rather large stable of bikes (see signature), many of which I'd happily rent/loan out.

    I appreciate the response. I was looking for a road bike. The closest place I could find was Geneva Bicycles. It is a little far for only wanting to ride a couple of days. It looks like you have a lot of bikes. Would you be willing to rent one of them out to me? I am thinking of riding two days while I am there.

    The hills will probably kill me and I doubt I will be able to stand more than that.

    I'll rent you one. Most of my sti bikes are in the 55-58 range, so if you're of a little more than average height we have a match.

    That is perfect. I am not all that picky on which one. My current bike is an Orbea Orca BRV Rival in 57 that I had to size down just a little bit. So something 56 would be about right.

    I am visiting my wife's family (go every summer). They live on Hungerford Rd off Ellis Hollow. Not sure if that is close to you or not.

    It' Ihaca, everything's close. I work at Cornell, so it'll be no problem to meet up. Send me a pm or bump this thread a week or so in advance of your visit and we can go from there. We can talk money then as well.

    Probably best to bring your pedals along, but other than that, I should be able to fit you to anything.
