    Destin Bike Rental

    Going to be in Santa Rosa next weekend. I can't find a place to rent a road bike, and I would love to ride while I am done there.

    If you know of a place to rent, or have an extra bike and want to have someone to ride with, let me know.

    Thanks.

    There was a bike shop IIRC between SanDestin and Panama City that was roadie-friendly, but I don't recall the name or know if they rented bikes. Most of the places along the beach specialize in the beach cruiser rentals. Another shop in Blue Mountain Beach was roadie-friendly as well. I may look for names for these places. I have stopped in both to buy tubes.

    Follow-up edit: The first is actually in Miramar: robinsbikes.com

    The second: either isn't there or maybe has changed hands/focus. Didn't see any road bikes on either shop in Blue Mtn.

    So I would try Robin's. If not there, Panama City is close to Santa Rosa, but I've never stopped in any shops there on my rides.

    Thanks for the reply. I was actually looking for a bike to rent to use on the Robins Bikes shop rides on Tuesday and Thursday. I contacted them about a month ago, and sadly the don't rent bikes. Looks like I will be bike less on this trip.

    Thanks for helping.
