Bike Rental Shop

Me: “Hi, I’m calling to ask if you rent bikes?”

Bike Shop Guy: “Um, let me check”

Let you check, huh? What does that mean?

Bike Shop Guy: [pause] “Uh yeah we have bikes to rent”

Me: “Ok, any details”

Bike Shop Guy: “Um, let me check”

Bike Shop Guy: [5minutes later…] ok so we have a Trek hybrid size 16 available and thats $35/day or $32/week… we also have a …. we also have a…

Me: Ok, I’ll reserve the Trek hybrid 16″.

Arrive at the shop at 4:30pm the next day, its not ready and have to wait 30min for the quick bike check. Not only that, the shop closes at 6pm so I’m paying $35 for an hour’s ride on a hybrid. Maybe I can keep it and take a couple hour ride in the morning and drop it off before my flight. Nope. Flight leaves at 9am but the shop doesn’t open until 10am.

I’m a cyclist. Maybe not a pro but at least like to play the part. All I’m asking for is a little help here. Is there some way when I can’t bring my own bike that I can sneak in a ride on a decent bike. It doesn’t have to be a top of the line ride but just something to keep the fitness up.
