    Coloradan visiting Traverse City, need advice

    I'm spending a week out there with family and thought I'd see what the riding scene is like. I need to rent a bike, will bring everything else. Ride steep technical stuff out here, but just looking to get out while I'm there. Any assistance on rental shops, recommended trails, etc would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
    James

    The main trails around here woud be the Vasa, Arcardia Dunes and the North Country trail, with the last being fairly similar to riding in Colorado

    See this thread for a link to all the trails on a map

    The Main bike shops are
    McClains mclaincycle.com/ - Specialized, Cervelo
    Brick Wheels brickwheels.com/ - Trek
    City Bike Shop citybikeshop.com/ - Giant, Niner

    I'm not sure if any of the shops rent bikes, but you could give them a call and ask. If you road ride as well, the road biking in Leelanau county is amazing.
