Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Les, where is that? Neighborhood, street, etc.

Also, do you know of any shops that rent road bikes?

That's about 71st Ave and Greenway. Not too far from the Peoria spring training ballfield.

Exhale Bikes rents. Dunno what their rates are...
