    Rent a bike in Tucson, AZ?

    Greetings to those where the weather is always nice.

    I'm going to be in Tucson, AZ on business next week. I was wondering if there was anywhere to rent a bike in Tucson. And if there is...what is the approximate cost?

    I'd like to take advantage of the warmer weather you all have done there KWIM?

    Jake: Hit it.

    I think I just answered my own question...

    Maybe you all can pipe and tell me if those prices are reasonable.

    Hope this isn't too late for you.

    Here's a page that my hold some relevance.

    The page you linked to has pricing similar to these guys, and given that the delivery and pickup and included things are very similar, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the guys you found are working through the guys I found.

    As for the others on the first page, Fairwheel and ABE have fairly good reps from what I've heard, but I have no idea on what they might charge for rentals. Bargain Basement isn't bad, but same on not knowing the rental charge. The others I'm not familiar with at all. There might even be others in town not listed on that page.

    As for the warmer weather, well... maybe not so much this week.

    Have known Gary and Jesse personally for a dozen years. Great folks to deal with when they had the bike shop, and still great/knowledgeable folks to deal with!

    Bah!

    This is going to be an ALL work kind of trip (since I'm traveling with the boss)...maybe next time.

    Thx for all the responses though.

    @mwrobel: You work, then I'm going to bike.
    And for four weeks, starting 5 April: better buy a bike?
    For touring from Tucson to Albuquerque (Globe - Show Low)
    Have a Giant Expedition (at home) that doesn't like to fly because of the airlines fee-policy.
    Every advice welcome.
