I'll be spending two weeks in Ocean City NJ this summer and would like to rent a good road bike. Can anyone recommend a shop there or nearby that I could contact?

The only shop I know where you might be able to rent a good road bike is Beacon's Cycling located at 231 Tilton Road, Northfield, NJ.

Phone # 609-641-9531

That is where the wife and I buy almost everything.

Hope that helps. BTW, if you want to ride sometime or want more info about anything, let me know.

They'll be lots of bikes to rent in Ocean City - all of them designed for 5mph boardwalk riding (or a surrey). I'm not sure you be able to find a good road bike to rent. Riding around Ocean City is not the best for fast-paced road rides. Lots of lights, traffic, pedestrians etc. Plenty of wind too. But, if you gotta ride, you gotta ride. Try finding some yellow pages (on the web) and call a few shops and rental places. Good luck.
