I never realized the Cuba Road hills were so high.

Everything about the logistics of the experience was excellent. Gerry delivered the bikes when promised to our rental house in a tiny village and arranged to retrieve them after we left from the house's owner. The Bianchis (Nirone Sora, alu-carbon) were good quality, maintained well, with compact gearing sufficient to handle the hills (although I am a flatlander who probably could have used either a triple or a smaller gear than 27 in back.) The only downside was the price, about $520 for 7 days (although Gerry let us keep the bikes two extra days), a big chunk of which was delivery cost ($160). If the weather had restricted riding (which was part of my trip but not its purpose), the price would have grated on me. A longer rental would have been bank-breaking. I rent a similar bike in Hawaii for about $320 for 2 weeks (no delivery cost), which is very competitive with what the airlines charge to ship a bike. For one week, the hassle-free rental (no shipping, no reassembly) Gerry provides is undoubtedly worth it.
