The staff here is very efficient and helpful. There is a nice selection of bikes and all other manpowered wheeled transportation including wheelchairs that are designed for the beach. They provide maps to help you navigate around by bike, which is a very popular thing to do on Sanibel. It is very bike friendly on this island. You can bike... More

I rely on Billy's Bike shop to take care of my bike needs whether it be topping off the air in my tires, adjusting my bike's computer, readjusting the bike seat or buying a new bike basket. Recently when I stopped by to have my computer checked, Preston noticed that my cables to the gears were worn through--no wonder I... More

During a visit to Naples, my family wanted to go bike riding and we discovered the bike paths on Sanibel. Billy's had good reviews and so we went. Since our visit was during the high season, reservations would not be taken over the phone, but when we arrived bikes were available. Don't fret if the check-in process seems a bit... More

We called two separate times to rent scooters. Both time we were told we did not need a reservation for our party of 8. They said they had plenty of scooters. After 40 minute drive (on our family trip that we came from across the country to meet) plus $18 in tolls for the bridge, we were told they did... More

We had a terrific experience with this "new" location of an island favorite bike rental. The manager, Ryan, personally delivered our bikes(rented for 2 weeks), and we found him to be very personable, engaging, and professional. He is a star! Then about a week later Billy saw us and came over to ask if we were pleased with our bikes.... More

Another great day out thanks to Billy's Bikes and Rentals. Friendly and helpful staff. Island maps with suggested routes make adventure easy to find without the cost of a tour. Bikes are in great condition, and helmets are provided.

Rented two hybrid bikes to ride through the refuge. The attendants were very friendly and helpful. The bikes were in pretty good shape for rentals I would rent from them again.

Billy's hosted a recumbent group ride and were wonderful to us. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating, and the store is worth visiting while you're in Sanibel.

Had a great day on Sanibel. Took bikes for 4 hours, staff was friendly - helped us chose the right equipment, prices are reasonable and the bikes are bikes - nothing fancy but they didn't break and were comfortable.

Bikes are in pretty bad repair but the service was good, efficient, and priced fairly. We went out to the Wildlife refuge in the morning before it got too hot. About 15 round trip if you do the Refuge loop.
