Recumbent Rental Venice Florida, Casey Key, Nokomis, Manasota Key, Englewood Florida

Recumbent Bike for rent. Image copyright © 2016All of us at Venice Bikes and Trikes love to ride recumbents. We remember a time years ago when you could ride all over Venice and the Legacy Trail and not see another recumbent other than the one we were riding! These days you are almost guaranteed to see one on the trails.

Beginning in the 2016-2017 Season we will offer them for rent so that you can get a taste of what "riding a bent" is all about.


Bike Rental in Osprey Florida!

Seriously though, our customers in Venice, Nokomis, Englewood, Casey Key, and Manasota Key know that we are the top-notch bike rental and on-site repair service in the region.


Flat Tires from Sandspurs

At Venice Bikes and Trikes one of the reasons we caution people to stay on the sidewalks and bike trails when riding one of our rental bikes is because 'everything in Florida has teeth', even the grass. If you've ever stepped on a sand-spur, you know what we're talking about. Not only is that little thorn as sharp as a needle, it is quite capable of drilling right into your tire and puncturing your inner-tube. Most of the flats we fix are due to puncture from sandspurs, but there are some things you can do to minimize their impact on your riding.


Test Ride a Trike

We have some new trikes and they are available to rent. One of the things that happens to us as we age is that we tend to develop some balance issues. (We even have a T-shirt that says, "I've fallen, and can't reach my beer!".) But we do still love cycling, and the outdoors, and the fresh air, and we simply don't want to give that up. Maybe we've even had to give up the use of a car, for whatever reason. Adult trikes to the rescue!


Rent a Bike for the Legacy Trail

There are lots of ways to enjoy the Legacy Trail system here in Venice Florida. The trail is open to walkers, skaters, and cyclists. We rent a lot of bikes at thje weekly and monthly rate, but we also have a ton of customers who just want to ride up and down the Legacy Trail for a day. In this article we talk a bit about the several excellent places to start out on your Day Ride adventure along the Legacy Trail, and Venice Trail systems.
