Road bike rental in Vancouver or Victoria?
 
Hello,

Just wondering if anyone can suggest a shop to rent a road bike for a few days this spring (April). I will be tagging along as my wife has a confrence in Vancouver. Looking to rent a nice road bike(bring own pedals/shoes/seat/etc) for couple of days and head over to Island, have a buddy in Victoria and another in Lake Cowichan, figured I'd pedal over and visit them. I have emailed a few shops but no replys??? Thanks.

Where in vancouver are you staying? Rent in Vancouver, cycle to ferry (Tsawassen), cycle to victoria (Lochside trail).
info here:

When cycling Van to ferry in Tsawassen, be wary of the massey tunnel. No bikes allowed. You can go the longer way around (alex fraser bridge) like this:

or there is a public transit bus/shuttle that can take you through the tunnel. Check translink's website for info.

Dont take a car on the ferry, whatever you do. $$$$$$ BC Ferries website will give you rates.

Vancouver Bike Store Diffrent Bikes rents $275/week for a road bike. It will be decent because DB is a decent shop. Call 'em for make/model info. It's on broadway near granville st I believe.
