Hey-- I'm off to LAS with work Saturday afternoon thru Sunday. Anyone know of a place to rent a decent bike? No need for anything too fancy, I'd be happy with anything that will pedal for 4 hours or so without self-destructing. Will be staying at the Sahara (yeehaw), so bonus points will be awarded for a place reachable from the north end of the strip. I asked the concierge-- he had lots of good ideas for buffets, no idea of bike shops.

Thanks, Chris

I rented a nice Cannondale road bike from McGhie's on the west side of Vegas last April. I spent my day riding the 13 mile loop at Red Rock National Park, which is just a bit west of McGhie's. The loop is basically 1,000 feet up and then 1,000 feet down. Very scenic.

I'd do it again.

Good luck.

+1 for them.
They will pick you up on the strip, and take you out for some road or mountain bike riding.

I'm late to the party but Las Vegas Cyclery has been my choice also. Good shop.

McGhies was great when I was there last year--rented a Cannondale Super Six complete with Lew's wheels. Top notch. I gave them my frame/saddle/bar measurements and they matched them to a T and had the bike ready to go when I walked in!!!!

Top notch.

Hit the Redrock area--a wonderful road ride and then you can roll down through Blue Diamond. Blue Diamond also has good mountain bike trails.

Have fun.
