Thanks so much to Tim's Bike and Beach Gear for making our beach vacation full of fun! The service is amazing- our bikes were delivered and picked up- very convenient. This was a wonderful way to get around Tybee. Thanks so much Tim and Fred!

Hey, please rent your bikes from Tim and Fred. They are so accommodating and genuinely nice. I am disabled and I bought one of their end of year used bikes for $100 cash, which was a heck of a deal. I panicked as soon as I got on my bike because I could not balance myself and if I fell,... More

Bikes were in good shape & the price was reasonable. My family enjoyed biking all over the island! I highly recommend foregoing the cars & renting a bike!

Rather than trying to pack several chairs and a beach umbrella into an over-crowded trunk, which incidentally would not work this year, I decided to rent beach gear after arriving. Had seen Tim's site on the net and was staying close by. Matt, who was in charge of the store the day I rented, was ultra nice and helpful with... More

We picked up 2 bikes quickly and spent the afternoon riding around Tybee (no reservation needed). There is free street parking right in front of the shop, and the road to the Tybee Island lighthouse is 1 block away. It took about 10-15 minutes to the lighthouse, and about 30-40 minutes at a leisurely pace through town to the southern... More

We rented 5 beach chairs and 1 beach umbrella for 4 days at a cost of $149. The chairs were old and rusty. In carrying them back and forth to the beach we got rust stains on our clothes which will not wash out. The umbrella was heavy and difficult to put up. You needed at least 2 people; 3... More

Tim's dropped off and picked up our beach chairs and umbrella as requested. The equipment was sturdy and the umbrella came with a small shovel which was very helpful. Because the chairs are sturdy, they are not easy to carry on a longer walk to the beach, so we will rent the beach cart next time. We did feel the... More

Tybee Island is a small island but with so much to see and explore. We decided as a family to enjoy the beauty of the area with bike rides. Tim's offers fairly priced bike rentals for the whole family (among other items...beach gear, strollers, cribs etc). The bikes were in great working order and sized on site to make sure... More

My daughter and I took a last minute trip to Tybee Island, and thought it would be fun to ride bikes. Based on the reviews from TripAdvisor, As mentioned by a few others, don't expect much by way of customer service. The bikes were in good condition, the baskets were a must-have for your purse, phone, etc. Shady bike paths... More

We walked in early on a weekday and the manager, owner? and two employees were in the shop. It didn't seem like the boys who worked there knew what to do. The manager was running things but was too busy to even return pleasantries. We got our bikes and the manager basically walked away and so did the shop boy.... More
