We visited Sanibel for a day and the traffic in Feb is pretty bad. It was a great day so we decided to rent bikes and explore on our own. We recommend!

We rented bikes from Billy's for years until we bought a condo on Sanibel and brought down our own from our northern home. Most rentals were great, and if ever there was a problem, the staff happily swapped out the bike or made a quick repair. PLEASE wear a helmet - available with every bike rental. We have recently purchased... More

I am writing this review because of the outstanding customer service I experienced at Billy's. It started when I called and spoke to Jordan who answered all of my questions ( and I had a few since I was in charge of this outing.) She knew the pro and cons of the different bike options, suggested different routes to take... More

We were on Sanibel during peak season so bicycling was both fun and convenient with the heavy traffic. We rented bikes for 3 days and enjoyed the bike trails that take you anywhere you want to go on the island. Parking at all of the public beaches is $4/hour (cars) so riding a bike to the beach is a no... More

John was very knowledgeable about the island and took the time to share lots of little details. We really enjoyed the Periwinkle Park and Libby. As this was our first time to the area, you really made it fun. We look forward to our next visit!

we rented bikes on line from Billy's, not realizing that the relationship between Billy's and Billy's Bailey isn't entirely seamless. Nonetheless, when we unwittingly took our bike to the latter for some minor adjustments, Patrick took extra pains to help, even swapping out a foot brake bike for a hand brake that perfectly met our need.

Good selection reasonably priced, The young man we dealt with was helpful and gave us some good tips on spots to check out. We both selected Jamis bikes and they operated smoothly.

We have headed to Sanibel Island on 2 separate occasions for a biking day. We rented bikes at Billy's Bike Rental and they were extremely helpful and reasonably priced. And we LOVE biking on Sanibel Island. Visited Lighthouse Beach and Turner's Beach. Great shelling on the island as well. We can't wait until we head back to Sanibel Island with... More

Billys is probably the most popular bike rental place on the island. It's not cheap to rent bikes but it's a great place to ride! They also have a store where they sell bikes and accessories. When you buy something they are very good to put whatever on your bike. If you have questions, they are very helpful in answering... More

We paid $50 each for a week's rental of multispeed bicycles. Bike had thick tires, good for balance and traction on occasionally wet pavement and sandy stretches of roadway after a brisk breeze. Both bikes worked perfectly: gears shifted smoothly, pedals easy to push depending on the gear, and seats adjusted perfectly by clerk at the Bailey's store branch. Easy... More
