I will be in beijing on business, staying in a hotel with no car.
Is there a place that I can rent a bike near a trailhead to ride?
I would live to ride the olympic trail
Oh, also, does anyone know if I can take a bike on the subway? There is a place that I can rent from that is right on the main line out to the olympic park. It is ~12KM away. While riding 12K is a no-brainer, doing it in beijing traffic is not necessarily my idea of a good time.
If I could hop on the subway it would be so much safer for a big dopey white guy.
So I have found that you can rent a bike from these folks:
It's 12km to the olympic trail. The streets have bike lanes (that particular street is a straight shot but its a pretty hairy street from what I remember.)
You can't take your bike on the subway.
