Keep Pedaling, Hilton Head South Carolina
Get your bike and join me. Mine's the pretty bright lime green bike. Bike rentals are everywhere on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Hotels have rentals as do private vendors to make it convenient. Prices are quite affordable. Some private vendors will even delivery your bike to the hotel or resort, while other resorts have the rental right there at your finger tips. I was given a sturdy lock and basket along with my rental; and a map of the trails. Paths go everywhere on the Island. In fact there are 10 scenic miles of bike paths and don't forget you can also ride on the beach.
On a hot summer's day you could enjoy some shade from the tree lined pathways. I get lost easily so pleased to see lots of signs to help you find your way.
You can enjoy trees, birds, beach scenes as well as caulking at the beautiful private homes. There's even a couple of guided tours you can take on your bike. One such popular tour is to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge. It was too cold for me to what to venture to another island; but hope to take that in on a return trip to the area.
You can ride just to ride, you can ride to shop or eat, you can ride and see historic sites, and you can ride to enjoy wildlife. I highly recommend renting a bike for a few days when you visit Hilton Head. The one partially warm day I rode all day while hubby was golfing. I had a ball and saw many things you might miss while riding by in a car at a higher speed.
