Does anyone know of an easy way to find bike shops that rent mountain bikes - especially in areas that are not popular for mountain biking?

Is there some site that these shops list themselves on?

I know that there is a US-wide bike rental service out there, but I would prefer to deal with a shop - or just know where it is so I can rent oone if I fell like it and not have to make arrangements.

Sometimes while spending a few days in some town I would like to look up some local trails and ride them. I don't mean places like Moab, I mean places in Milwaukee, WI, Pontiac MI, Tallahassee FL - just regular places that might have what looks like a half way decent trail in the area (as shown in the trail review section for instance). I have tried in the past for the above locations and it was difficult to find the rental shops without calling each one in the yellow pages.

Thanks

yup. it's difficult. quality of rentals varies incredibly. that's why people bring their own bikes.

i struggle with this frequently.
