Okay...after having always carried my bike from USA to Europe for tours, I've decided to save myself the airport/airline hassle and try a bike rental upon arrival. I'll probably take my own saddle because my butt appreciates spending several hours a day on something it is accustomed to. I figure a 10 day rental at most. Of course, I will want a bike designed for light touring on paved roads. I figure about sixty miles daily max average and NO camping.
I've always equated bike rental with having a one night stand with a stranger......you never know what you're going to end up with. Sooo, never having done this, I have a couple of questions. Is there a group or business that offers a continent wide rental possibility, or do I have to investigate each country individually? I would assume the latter but the former sure would be a blessing.
Though I haven't made my final selection, I'll probably be doing a tour of Denmark. Anyone have any suggestions for Danish bike rentals? Doesn't have to be in Copenhagen, though that is where I'll fly in and probably out. Czech Republic is also a possibility.....Bulgaria...... Heck, ANYthing is a possibility at this point. If you know of a good rental option I'd like to hear it, regardless of the country. I haven't set any dates or anything yet, just curious of the possibilities that a rental may offer for future consideration.
Any help would be appreciated.
