June 19, 2020

Whether you are looking for history, food, beach scenes, or shopping, biking is the perfect way to spend a day on St. Simons Island.  With over 30 miles of biked pathways, the options are endless.  To start your adventure, check out this user-friendly bike map.

For a quick family friendly bike ride, start by renting bikes from Ocean Motion .  Bike along marsh lined sidewalks to East Beach; and view the coastal cottages along the way.  For a quick history lesson, stop at the WWII home front museum, then relax on the beach while the kids frolic in the waves.

To explore the Pier Village, rent bikes from Two Brothers Bike Shop, located at Mallory Street or Island Bicycle, across the street from Hodnett Cooper Vacation Rentals on Ocean Blvd.  Bike down the pier and tempt your taste buds at one of the many restaurants.  After a quick bite, let the kids play on the playground and then test your endurance by climbing the historic St. Simons Island Lighthouse.  If you want to extend your ride, continue down Ocean Boulevard and ride under the oak lined pathways of Kings Way.

Dotted by neighborhoods, the shaded bike paths of Frederica Road lead to the north end of St. Simons.   You can rent bikes from Monkeywrench Bicycles off of Frederica Road and start your journey there.  On the way, you will find nature trails, parks, restaurants and shops.  For history lovers, make sure to stop for a tour at the historic Harrington School, then continue to Christ Church.  Nature lovers can explore the 600 acres of preserved green space at Cannon’s Point or rest at Frederica Park.
