Bike Rental Frequently Asked Questions
Before we get started let us say thank you and we will work with anyway we can to make your experience pleasurable.
Are we a franchise?
No but we have programs to help you if you would like to build a mini golf or bike rental in your town.
What kind of bikes do you rent?
We only rent single speed beach cruisers (look around you are at the beach) plus they hold up much better to get you there and back. We are blessed with a rather flat island so no problem man.
Where do I make reservations?
Of course, at the shack located at 1204 gulf shores pkwy. But you can also make a request for reservation right here on our web page, under reserve now.
Do I have to leave a deposit?
Although we welcome cash or credit cards. We do require a copy of a valid id, driver’s license or passport. Credit card deposits may result in a 2-7 day delay for reimbursement. Depending on your bank.
How old do I have to be?
State law requires that no one under the age of 18 may rent a bike unless accompanied by a parent or guardian, with that being said, we also want you to know that anyone under 16 must wear a helmet. For the kiddies, we have trailers, we hoos, and tandems as well as a variety of smaller bikes.
What should I bring?
We have ice cold water here at the shack for thirsty customer you can fill your bottle with. Bug spray is good for evening rides, maybe a towel since there are plenty of places to take a quick dip, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and any snacks or drinks you might want. All our adult bikes come with a free basket so you can load it up.
Are there maps?
Yes, we have them and better than that we can turn you on to some great apps as well.
What areas should I avoid?
That’s one of the greatest parts of cruising Pleasure Island; we don’t have any areas you can’t feel safe in. We just ask you to stay on the trails out of sand, water or the woods.
