bike rental in Seattle or on the way from there?

Postby carefactornil » Sun Mar 28, 2010 10:45 am

Hi,
UK people here. Coming to BM via Seattle this time around, wondering if there's a good equivalent to Black Rock Bicycles in Reno (which we used last year). Either in Seattle or somewhere en route. Going via Reno would stick at least another 4 hours on our journey down from Seattle so although they were great, I don't think that will work this year.

Any recommendations?

Cheers,
Simon

Hutch’s Bicycles in Klamath Falls rents bikes and is kind of on the way from Seattle.

Might check craigslist in a couple towns along the way before comming. I see lots of bikes for sale for much less than the cost of a rental. Then when you go back through any big city, jus leave them parked along the road. They won't be there long.

Klamath Falls is directly on the way to Burning Man from Seattle if you take the route I've come to prefer over the years. That place is probably a good option, though you could almost certainly hit craigslist for a garage-sale bike super cheap and give it away after the event.
