Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
rental bikes

We don't want to hassle with boxing/shipping our bikes. Does anyone have any experience with renting quality bikes that fit the rider? Thanks!

Use the Plan a Ride feature on this site to generate a list of bike rental shops along the trail. Visit their website and/or contact them to find out what they offer to rent...then you can determine if anyone offers the "quality" of bike that you require. I've rented from the bike shop in Rocheport several times and have never been disappointed. I didn't rent for a multiday ride though, understanding that although they were good bikes, I didn't expect the fit to equal the Brooks saddle on the Trek or the Santana longbike.

I rented from Momentum Cycles(St. Charles) & Katy Trail Bike rental in Defiance when my bike was broke down and was happy with both places. As far as "fitting the rider" they generally have just given me a bike that was big enough and let me go. If you think this is going to be big deal for you, then you probably need to call them. I think the bike shop in Defiance is shut down for the season, so I am not sure about contacting them. I believe the shop in St. Charles is open year round.

How much for a top of the line rental per day?
