    A couple good shops in Venice. Real Bikes and Bicycles International. Real Bikes will rent you a full suspension. Their sister store in Englewood has hard tails for rent.

    There are a number of pretty good trails around the area. My favorite is Boldly Go on the Carlton Reserve. Obviously flat but smooth and flowy. A few more in North Port. Live Long and the separate Prosper. They follow a creek with lots of roots. Another is Hillsborough. Small area but a couple good loops.

    Did you go already? UBC bicycle rents out bikes right at the park in Alafia. Not sure if they are there right now with this virus issue.
