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.

Walked about a mile to rent a scooter for 24 hours, guys in the back told us to go,pay while they got it ready. The cashier refused to write it up, said it was to late. Not only did she refuse, she was downright nasty.

I live here and always take my visitors to Billy's to get bikes for a nice ride. Rates are very reasonable. Sanibel is very bike friendly and you'll see fellow bike riders all around!

Rented a couple of bikes for a half day fro Billy's. Everyone was nice and friendly, helpful advice on a decent route based on our abilities, and pricing was very decent at $25 for two multi speed bikes. All the bikes in places like this are what they are, and you just accept that. At home we are both used... More

Wonderful service! So very fortunate that we were able to rent the beach wheelchair that is both delivered promptly and picked up when we were finished at the beach. Such a caring and compassionate owner and management.

Four good friends had a fabulous Segway tour and experience in Sanibel with John of Billy's bikes. I would highly recommend the tour and ask for John. He was very knowledgeable, interesting, friendly and helpful. I'd definitely do this again. This was our first time on Segways and we had a blast! Thanks, John!

This is a great place to rent bikes. They were friendly and since we were returning after hours said we could keep them out longer and chain them up when we got back. They have all kinds of bikes so we found what we needed for the whole family, even grandpa! There are a ton of bike trails in Sanibel... More

Canopy over your head to block the suns harmful rays. Side by side peddling with ample storage fore & aft. We rented for 2hrs. That was plenty of time to make the 3mi round trip to Sanibel closest beach to Billy's and have a 'Corona' moment on the beach. The beach was peaceful and quiet with not many people. Employees...
