Few hotels rent bikes, but you can inquire at bike shops like Giant, where the rate is around Y50 a day, plus a large refundable deposit. Note that for about Y200 you can buy your own basic bike at Tesco or Carrefour. Shanghai's frenzied traffic is not for the faint of heart, though most secondary streets have wide, well-defined bike lanes.
