Does anyone know where I can rent a bike in Portland OR?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Road bike that is. Doesn't have to be anything too fancy, but not a single speed cruiser either. And I'll actually be in Hillsboro. TIA.

I get this question all the time, and the easy answer is no. However, Fat Tire Farm in NW Portland rents cyclocross and mountain bikes. They are a great shop so I would point you toward a cross bike there.

Hey Hey Hey, their rental page shows Kona road bikes. Your lucky day!

Perfect! The Kona Zing would work fine. Now I'll have to see if I can persuade them to give me a multi-day rate for a week--otherwise I'll have to check into that Competitive Cyclist demo deal.

thanks.
