I'm planning a trip to New York City at the end of June. Is there a good place to hire a decent road bike while I'm there?, can anyone recomend a couple of good rides near the city?, would anyone want to show off their fair city and its environs to a visitor on a bike?. The main purpose of my trip is to visit a couple of old friends, drink and relax, so a headbanging chain-gang ride isn't what I'm after, but 60 miles or so at a steady pace would keep the cold turkey at bay and get the blood flowing.
Thanks for any suggestions.

|Central park is a great ride. I believe century road club has nightly rides.
You could probably get a ride at TOGA bike shop.
Tons of great rides on long island (north shore), or westchester county (some serious steep hills).
try these links:
I'd ride with you, but I find the English accent rather annoying. F*** the queen.

|funny, my English friends can't stand the American accent because it sounds "nasely" to them! I'm sure the original poster had this thought, but he's too polite to print it.|

|on one ride I came across 2 brits, bunch of canadians, a russian, an italian, 2 belgians and 3 french (who didn't say a word). I had better luck with italian and russian then that guy from Lancashire. The other bloke was from Liverpool he was easy to comprehend.|
