There are definitely possibilities for both moutain bike and more city-
bike hikes:

- http://www.veloland.ch/ (blue marking on-site) has trips suitable for 
city-bikes, very well indicated, most of which stay along the lake(s) 
- http://www.mountainbikeland.ch/ (yellow marking on-site) has trips 
that need stronger bikes [1].

On general, every route of classes [2] one to four will be fit for city 
bikes. Class five is likely to need a mountain bike, class six will 
likely impose to step down from the moutain bike at times.

As for renting facilities, Rent-a-bike has a renting facility in 
Yverdon-les-bains [3] (18km away, ~2h of bike), but I can't find closer
