where in the U.S. can I rent an electric bicycle?

I've found websites for many US bike stores that sell e-bikes, but I'm looking to rent one for a bike tour, and I haven't seen many stores that seem to do that.

I'm organizing a self-contained bike tour for December, contingent on finding a base city with a store that has a few electric bikes for rent by the day or week.

Warm, if not downright hot, climates are preferred, so I'm partial to getting some store names/locations/websites anywhere in the more southern states.

For example, I've been looking but unable to find much in Arizona and southern Florida.

Oh yes: I do own an electric bike, but am unwilling to fly domestically with it. The weight of it basically doubles the airfare.

All leads appreciated!

Response by poster: oh PS, PS - I'm talking more "traditional bicycle fitted with hub motor and battery" and less "electric scooter." something more in line with this: http://www.electricvehiclesnw.com/main/lite.htm

Austin TX has Alianscooters. The sited lists a rate of $30.00 a day for 3 or more days and has a few maps on their website to get people started on local tours.
