Recommended bike rental place in the Orlando-Kissimmee (FL) area ?

Good morning everyone,

Could anyone recommened a bike rental place in the Orlando-Kissimmea area? I am heading there with the family for a couple of weeks, and I'd like to explore some of the trails in the region while my son and my significant other visit the mouse and other various theme parks.

Surprisingly enough, neither Google nore Yahoo did not come out with anything. In fact, Yahoo did return a place (why walk), but the phone number has been disconnected.

Thanks in advance,

Give a call or shoot an e-mail to Orange Cycle in Orlando:

Good people here and if they don't rent bikes, they can probably tell you who does.

Duh! Now that I think of it there are bikes available for rent at the south trailhead of the West Orange Trail, which is a pretty nice ride of about 22 miles one way. It's paved and pretty well shaded and passes thru some nice countryside.

Thanks Bob.

I delved deeper into Google and found a few other places that rent bikes.
If anyone's interested, I have the link at home (@ work now)
I'll check the two places you mentioned also.

Do share! I'll be in Orlando from 8/6 - 8/10 on business and I'm having a hard time dealing with the fact I have to rent a car. I'm wondering if I could get by taking the bus or a cab from Orlando Airport (MCO) to my hotel on I-drive.. and hopefully find a bus to take me to the closest bicycle rental merchant.

I wonder if the Orange County convention center has bike racks?

Elite Road Bike Rentals

My company rents road bikes (Specialized Tarmacs) in the Orlando area. We deliver them to your hotel, and pick them up before you leave town. We can do guided rides and bike fits too.
