    MRT bike rentals??

    Ok some friends and I will be out in Portland next week and will then be driving to Bend. I have seen several threads about McKenzie River Trail and we would love to ride it. Are there any bike rentals besides in Bend that are closer to the trail itself???


    Thanks!

    Eurosports in Sisters rents bikes I believe and there are numerous shops in Eugene that rent also. You should be in luck to find a "non-sissy" bike easily. :-)

    No mtb rentals in Eugene.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Paul's on 5th rents hybrid types. I've seen older couples rocking them on MRT...all the bike you need for below Trailbridge.

    Seriously though, zero mtb rentals in Eugina. Hell, there's only a couple real mtb shops there.

    Brock...
    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.

    Disciples Of Dirt, come ride with us.

    I know a dude that rode the whole thing on his clapped out Huffy hoopdey bike. He got a couple flats. That ain't no sissy bike fosho! He was smiling at the end, even. Proves what Lance said, "it's not about the bike."
