The seven lake drive is okay but not that good. All lakes look the same.... Gets boring. Much better is the drive on route 237 (unpaved!). More altitude, wonderfull basalt rock formations. Wow.

All the way from San Martin de los Andes to Villa la Angostura, around 80/100 kms of a winding road with many places to stop and admire the views of different lakes and rivers

Sorry we drove so I'm not sure about bike rental companies. We did see bikes on the road which appeared to be set up for long distance rides.
