    Bike library/rental/cheap buy~ Corvallis?

    I'll be visiting my sister and her husband 4/6-4/13 and have been exploring my options for bringing my bike (not likely-too expensive) or a rental (called random and got quoted 80/wk for a fitness hybrid) or a cheap(?) buy off Craigslist to be donated at end of week...

    Anyone have any suggestions? I'm a large Clyde (fitter than fatter but still 280) and while I would prefer one of m own bikes it appears I need to look into other options...

    My ears are all open...

    If you haven't been before, Corvallis is a awesome city to commute by bike. Bikes have dedicated traffic lanes downtown. They are indicated with a bike painted in the lane. There is bike shop every block. A lot will let you test ride. You could hit a different one each day and ride their bikes around. I have been looking for a bike on craigslist in this area, to use on my trainer an haven found much. If you are able to pick one up on there let me know and I might swing down and tak it off your hands when you are done. Let me know. Enjoy Oregon!

    Thanks Jesse. Problem solved. Her neighbor has a bike for me to borrow for the week. Keep an eye out for a lost looking big fella with flower tattoos on his leg on a mountain bike in about two weeks.

    Looking forward to it!

    You can pick up a free area bicycling map (Corvallis & Benton county) from the local Parks & Rec office in Avery Park. Some of the local bike shops may also have these available. Enjoy your stay here.
