There are very few places that will rent a bike in the Philadelphia region. These are the only ones I know about.
Drive Sports 1 Boathouse Row, (Hut next to Lloyd Hall). Mountain bikes, child carriers of various types and rollerblades all year round rental conveniently located on Kelly Drive, next to Lloyd Hall, at the start of Boathouse Row, behind the Art Museum. Also rents in-line skates. It has limited hours - mainly summer weekends.
