Lonely Planet review

This nonprofit group trawls local landfills and scrap yards for junked bikes, then brings them back to its warehouse and refurbishes them. Half get sold in the storefront shop; proceeds enable the group to ship the rest to developing countries. It’s a great deal – you’ll get a sturdy, well-oiled machine for the bargain price of about $100.

If you're planning on renting a bike for more than a few days, consider buying one of the co-op's two-wheelers instead. When you’re finished, you can donate it back.
