bicycle rental fee - 04/19/01 06:58 PM

I'm going to be there in two weeks and I did a search and I can't seem to find out how much it costs to rent a bike in AC. Now maybe I'm not the sharpest pencil in the pencil case, but if you've seen the rental price for a bike, please let me know. P.S. I'm staying at Banana Beach and bike rental is not included (I think).

I recall being told $5 US but don't recall if that's by the hour or for the day..... Sorry.... Some resorts have bicycles for you like Jane said. Ask. They are NOT expensive.....

Why Diann, you know something I don't? Am I going to be tempted by some hottie like Paisano who'll make me want to pick up hitchhikers on my bicyle built for two? Damn, I promised myself I'd be a good girl this trip. Don't give me any ideas. Too bad your not going to be down there in May or are you?

Becky, when Karin and I were in San Pedro, we walked everywhere. We thought of renting a bike, but everyone we talked to said walking was best. The sand is deep in some places making it hard to pedal if you aren't use to it, and you don't have to worry about where to leave it when you go into a shop or bar.

Hey Becky
Rented bike last time there, definitely worth doing for a day to get the layout of the land... hard packed dirt roads through-out, soft sand only on beach areas... ohhh watch out for the banana seats...k-man

I just posted my experience and I read your inquiry. Joe's Bike Shop is the best and cheapest. he offers his bikes at $12 Belize dollars for 3 hours which is only $6 us dollars and the longer you have the it gets even cheaper. Don't be fooled by the resort prices...$15 us...it's nuts. The locals are the best and Joe's is the only one we ended up finding who was cool and cost effective. Take a walk towards Ruby's Cafe and if you aske anyone they'll point just down the street to Joe's bike shop.

Enjoy your trip...

Thanks everyone, Valerie and Scott, Flounder and everyone else. Will use your tips. Can't wait to be there. Look for my trip report on the May 14th. Hopefully it won't involve me flying off my bike.

You know it, all you good looking guys (even not so good looking as long as you've got a great sense of humor) look out for a girl on a bike with a beer in her right hand and her left hand on the handle? She's trouble. Wait a minute, is it legal to drive a bike in AC with a beer in one hand?
