I lived in the Bay area for the last 8 years, 5 of them in Berkeley and 3 in Oakland. I know that bicycle & BART is the best way to get around SF-Oakland. I moved to LA 4 months ago (for school). I will be driving up with some friends the 27th-30th. Rather than attempting to lug five bikes on a honda civic I want to see if some there are some spots where I can rent/borrow 5 bikes for 3 days. I'm not interested in the tourist hourly rentals. I need a transportation steed that can get me around. Does anyone have any ideas of where I can make this happen? Maybe one of the many bicycle co-ops? If you guys have any ideas I am all ears ( or I guess all eyes...)
Or last ditch effort, how can I get five bikes on a honda civic secured for a 400 mile drive?
