Best Atlanta bike rental places

I have a company training planned in Duluth / Atlanta and I was thinking about renting a road bike to enjoy some riding over there. My main problem: I need a small road frame with a reach less than 375mm. Preferably 370mm.

That's usually something smaller than 52. 52 might work if there is nothing else, but I found no place online that rents out bikes in extra small. I know-I know. I can still rent a nice women's bike in flashy pink.

Silver Comet Depot is the other side of Atlanta but if you are willing to drive then the Silver Comet Trail is right there.

Atlanta has a bike share program now, I think it's called COAST bikes, but can't recall for sure. Have them all over town.

I'm coming in mid-April and I have no specific plans where to ride. I was thinking about long commutes from the hotel to Duluth, but I haven't checked out whether that's even possible or not. Any recommendation is welcomed!

Great tip! Thanks! I'd rather ride a men's frame, but hey, if nothing better comes up I'm not that picky.

It appears from the street view that there (may) be some manner of limited bike path along Peachtree Industrial. I doubt it goes all the way into Atlanta.
Traffic up that side can be pretty rough, and be aware of where you leave a bike.

Soooo I ended up renting the bike from cycleworks and I had a pretty good experience. Unfortunately they don't have smaller men frames so I ended up on a women's bike, but it was fine.

I only used the bike to commute twice and returned it (47 miles total), so I didn't have a chance to ride the more interesting routes the bike shop told me about. I was kind of surprised that despite the very wide roads the bike infrastructure between Buckhead and Duluth was almost non existent. Yeah, I bumped into bike lanes here and there, but it would be soooo easy to repaint those lanes a little bit narrower and set up protected bike lanes. On the bright side every motorist was super nice and polite. No honking, close calls, I was impressed.

I rode a few smaller roads and they were pretty and surprisingly lumpy.

Hey! I appreciate your offer. Unfortunately I was sooo busy that I could only fit in commutes and I only rented a bike for less than 24 hours. But hey! Next time!
