Vacationing in Flagstaff, AZ -- Looking to rent a road bike

Hi all:

The family and I are heading out to Flagstaff for 8 days. While I'm there, I'd like to rent a road bike and do a few ~30 mile rides.

I'm bringing my helmet, shoes, pedals, etc.

Anyone have any recommendations for a good shop to rent a bike from? Any bike routes would greatly appreciated, too.

Thanks,
Bob

Can't help with the bike rental, but you should definitely do the Mormon Lake ride (http://ridewithgps.com/routes/114101), which is probably the most popular route in the area.

If you want a good climb, check out Snow Bowl Road: http://goo.gl/maps/IXMCL

I did 89A from Flagstaff to Sedona quite a few times, but there's not much shoulder there, so some people might not like that route. Here's a picture from there:



Flagstaff itself is pretty bike friendly. You shouldn't have much trouble finding a good route in and out of wherever you're staying.
