I'll be spending a long weekend in Philly at the beginning of May. Does anyone know where I might rent a decent road bike for a few days? The trip's not long enough to justify shipping or traveling with my bike.

Thanks.

Try Drive Sports across from the Art Museum. They're in the phone book. If you can't rent a nice bike from them, just rent a hybrid and take the path along the Schuylkill to Valley Forge and back--it's flat but really pleasant, about 20-25 miles each way, and you can ride a nice loop around Valley Forge National Park to add more miles.

Another shop to try would be Trophy Bicycles at 4th and Market Streets. Not sure if they rent, tho.

If the one's above don't rent, try any Bikeline near where you're at. They usually have a bunch of rentals available. Though, I'm not sure about road bikes.
