A new website allowing cyclists to rent bikes or list their own bikes for others to rent launched this month and its founder is hoping Tucson will be home to the first rental.
Dan Cleary, the creator of Velolet.com, which he calls a bike rental hub, said the goal of his site is to make it easy for cyclists to rent quality bikes when they take a trip.
“If you travel, you know what the bike rental situation looks like a lot of times, which is a real cool beach cruiser. But that is not going to get you up to the top of any mountains any time soon,” Cleary said. “If it goes correctly it will be a central place where people will look for a rental instead of trying to do a Google search.”
