You'll probably want to call them directly to find out - they may or may not be watching this forum. One thing I can tell you is that some of the shops that normally do rent bikes have not been able to offer rentals this summer. Like with a lot of things post-covid, there are supply chain problems causing a shortage of new bikes, resulting in fewer bikes available for rental. I was looking for a rental back in May and couldn't find much anything between Rochester and Albany. I ended up going down to Poughkeepsie. Having said that, hopefully the situation has changed since then and availability is more back to normal by now. Here's a link you might find helpful: https://bikeempirestate.com/bike-shops.aspx That's all the bike shops that I know of, located close to the Erie Canalway Trail (and actually the whole Empire State Trail beyond that). The shops that USUALLY offer rentals have a little dollar sign icon next to their listings. Good luck!
