San Diego Filter: Where's the cheapest/best place to rent a bike in SD? Also, I'm thinking about biking from downtown SD to Torrey Pine State Park--is this a good idea?

I'm going to California for the first time (I'm an east-coaster) and I'm very excited about it! Since I'm going over for a conference however, my exploring time is very limited. I should have two full days to do whatever I please in SD. I will be staying in downtown SD.
That said, I'd really like to visit Torrey Pine State Park...I've looked up the public transit situation in SD but it would take such a long time to go there (1.5 hours) whereas the bike route (2 hours) would only be slightly longer, more scenic, and probably more interesting. Also, a taxi would be way too expensive according to the taxifare estimators I checked.
I cannot bring my bike to SD and am a poor college student (who loves to bike). So where's the best place to rent a bike? (I wish there were bikeshare programs in every big city in the states...)
