Greetings, All: Will be visiting Fredericksburg, VA for a family member's wedding weekend in October. I imagine the riding will be beautiful that time of year. Two questions:

1) A good place to rent a decent (but not superfancy) road bike -- or even hybrid.

2) A route with pretty views, 25-ish miles, maybe 1,500' or so of climbing. Let me know if these numbers are unreasonable around there; I'm a bit flexible, but need to leave lots of time and energy for the weekend.

Thanks in advance!
