    Hello,

    I just found these forums and they look great.

    I will be in the lake district of Italy in October. Does anyone know of a bike shop in Lake Como that rents bicycles? Even better if you have an email address or website.

    I have heard the roads are busy. Would it be better to rent a mountain bike and go off-road?

    I'm not looking for anything fancy, just want to get out for some exercise and enjoy the scenery. I expect to ride an hour or two a few times during the week.

    Thanks.

    A quick Google search included this link for a vacation rental house that mentions mountain bike rental and trails. It might be worth a try to contact the owner.

    Good luck and enjoy the beautiful landscape and incredible food and wine.

    Good luck. I will actually be in the area in October too. I will be visiting several places in Italy for my honeymoon the last 1.5 weeks of October.
