1. Re: bring bikes or rent?

If you are coming for 1 night, as I got the impression from your other question, then I would rent. Of course if the kids are riding too then maybe I would bring their bikes as while there are many bike rental facilities, I'm not certain how many kids bikes there might be, or if they have the size your kids might like. Better there to be safe rather than sorry.

Bring if you can. The rental bikes are awful; slow, heavy, and creaky. They're built for durability rather than pleasure. On the other hand, the bike places offer tandem and tagalong bikes, which you might not possess.
