Jekyll Island has more than 20 miles of bicycle trails, many of them recently resurfaced. A long stretch runs along the beach, where a rider can take advantage of the cool breezes in the summer. Others will opt for pedaling through the Historic District to view the Cottages of the Millionaires while riding beneath majestic live oaks. The more adventurous will head up the Riverview side of the island for its spectacular marsh views and a visit to the historic Horton House. New trails zig zag through the forests on the island's south end.
A real advantage of Jekyll's bicycle trails is that they are safe, ideal for families with children. It is a common occurrence to see a four or five year old pedaling in front of his parents down one of the many paths.
Without a bike, using a trail is not as much fun. Often visitors to the island bring bikes with them. All types of bikes are available for rent. You can have the normal two wheel variety, or why not try a three-weelers sporting a semi-recumbent position or load up the whole family on a four-weel carriages with a surrey fringe on top.
Bikes can be rented at the Mini-Golf and Bike Rentals, at most hotels, or Beachside Bike Rentals near the Day's Inn Motel.
