Road Bike Rental - Charleston/Foley Beach SC Area

Vacationing in Foley Beach, SC this summer and I would like to rent a road bike for the week. Can anyone recommend/suggest a LBS that rents decent road bikes in the Charleston/Foley Beach SC area?

Thanks

We were in Charelston 2 summers ago and I remember checking out a bike shop near the Ft Sumter ferry that had road bike rental. Argh - can't find it on google maps now. I **think** it was Charleston Bike Co., it was on East Bay near Calhoun St and the Saffron Cafe & Bakery was across the street. I recommend a google search and some phone calls. Good luck!

Don't know anything in Foley Bch area but I've rented a decent road bike from The Bicycle Shoppe (clever name) in downtown Charleston, on Meeting Street. They also have a sister shop in Mt. Pleasant, but that's in the wrong direction for you. https://www.thebicycleshoppecharleston.com/index.html

If you're going to be on Folly Beach you'll be on James Island. Check Mike's Bikes www.mikesbikescharleston.com they are right up the street from Folly Beach. I know they rent beach cruisers but i'm not sure if they rent road bikes. Charleston Bike Company isn't too far in Downtown.
