From urban to rural and inland to coastal, Sarasota, Florida offers both the serious cyclist and the casual push-pedaler plenty of biking opportunities. If you are just popping in for some sunshine and traveling sans bicycle, here are the six best places for rentals to get you on two wheels in no time.

1. Rent everything at Robin Hood Rentals


Robin Hood Rentals provides everything you need to enjoy some serious fun on Siesta Key. Aside from paddleboards, kayaks, scooters, golf carts and beach accessories, Robin Hood Rentals has all sorts of top-notch bicycles and, whether you fancy a beach bike, tricycle, tandem rig or mountain bike, you’ll find it here, and you can rent bikes for kids and teenagers, too. There’s also a professional hair braider on hand, because what’s a Florida beach getaway without getting your hair braided up or wrapped in colorful string?

2. Find your perfect bike at Siesta Key Bike and Kayak LLC


Siesta Key is an ideal place for biking. Not only can you ride right on the beach, but there are designated bike lanes and beautiful canopy trails. You’ll notice right away how fashionable biking is in this area, and for that reason, Siesta Key Bike and Kayak is a popular shop. It has over 500 bikes to choose from, so you can rest assured it’ll have the perfect bike for you. It also rents bike accessories, such as car racks, so that you can take your rental bike off the island and enjoy the many trails on the mainland.

3. Stop by IBike Sarasota


Located in the heart of Downtown Sarasota, IBike Sarasota offers it all. Whether you want a chic city bike or classic coastal cruiser, a single day or week-plus rental, in-shop pick-up or delivery, your bike-rental wish is its command. It also has two self-service bike stations where you can pick up and drop off bikes whenever you want. Each rental comes with a helmet, bike lock and basket.

5. Pay less at Pedego Sarasota


Pedego Sarasota offers very affordable rental rates for both premium and specialty e-bikes. If you are cruising with a little one, it even rents child seats and trailers to pull behind your bike. One of the best places to cruise and experience Florida’s natural and wild beauty is along the Legacy Trail, which is a 25-mile (40-km) round trip; the perfect distance for an e-bike. If you want a guided tour, Pedego’s got you covered with its two-hour guided e-bike tour of the trail. You might even luck out and spot a bobcat or an alligator.

6. Take a tour with Endless Summer Eco Tours and Rentals


Since 2018, Endless Summer Eco Tours and Rentals has received hundreds of rave reviews for its high-end electric bikes, incredible customer service and exceptional tours. Some of its tours include watching the sun set on Siesta Key, an adventure through Myakka State Park and a ride on the Legacy Trail, all on an e-bike. You can also rent by the hour if you just want to explore Sarasota solo.
