San Diego / Coronado bike rental

We're staying in the San Diego area for a couple days, and I'd like to find a good LBS to rent a couple bikes. Likely beach cruiser or fatbikes, but not likely gonna want road bikes (I'd like to, but not likely). I tried some BF searches, but could find anything using my phone. Thanks in advance for any help.

Holland's Bicycles 977 Orange Ave Coronado, CA 92118 Electra, Specialized, Linus, Phat, Nirve, and Raleigh. Bicycle sales and service.

Downtown Coronado. If you're thinking of riding the Bayshore Bikeway/Silver Strand, consider an electric bike. The wind howls every afternoon.

if staying downtown, there is bike revolution on 6th avenue. there is also this bike share program which is well spread out in the downtown/metro area:
DecoBike San Diego - Rent a Bike | California Bicycle Rental, Bike Sharing, Public Bike Program | Bicycle Rentals, Bicycle Shop | San Diego Bike Tour, Bicycle Rides, Bicycle Sharing

don't miss riding along the downtown bayfront from the airport area south to the convention center and riding through balboa park. india and kettner streets north of "a" street are also fun.

Coronado is one of the most bike friendly places I've been in the US. more like some French cities I've bikes.

We're at the Loews for a couple days, they have a rental shop on site with some basic cruisers. Just what I wanted for a little fun. $10 for one hour, cheap fun. Yesterday we rode 6 miles, north and south along the path on the point. Easy riding, dead flat, some wind but not bad.


Today we'll try the bike share and see the park.

Planning to get a nice bike from Holland on Saturday fit a longer ride. We'll be staying at Del Coronado for the weekend.

We're truly loving the area. Might need to re-lo. :-)
