Help with Bike...

Hello, my wife and I will be coming to Wales to visit friends in October, and I am looking forward to trying to ride in that part of the world. From what my buddy says and the pictures he posts, it is absolutely beautiful.

I am looking for recommendations on borrowing or renting a road bike in Cardiff for a couple of days between October 9th and 14th - so I can go on a ride or two with my buddy. Anyone have any recommendations for a fairly nice road bike?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Other than the obvious google search the only bicycle shop/hire shop I've been into is in Brecon.

Anyway, enjoy. Make sure you get the guided tour of Cardiff castle and a trip to the Brecon Beacons would probably be worthwhile if the weather's good.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
