The timing stinks, but, I'm coming to San Diego next week with my wife who will be at a conference for a week. Is it likely that the air will be clear enough to ride by next Wednesday? If it is, what are some recommendations for getting a bike, and finding group rides happening through the week? I'm a cat 4 racer, looking to meet people out there for any type of ride from casual to fast. I'll be staying near the convention center 10/31-11/8.
Northwest wants $160 to get my bike there and back, so I'm thinking that renting a bike there would be a better bet. Can anyone recommend a shop that rents decent road bikes?
