My List of the Top Five 30A Bike Rental Companies
Biking is one of the best ways to explore the many 30A beach communities that run along the Gulf of Mexico in South Walton County. The Timpoochee Trail is an 18-mile bike/walking path that runs the entire length of the 30A Florida corridor. On the east end of SoWal the Timpoochee trail starts in Inlet Beach next to Shades Bar & Grill and on the west end, it starts in Dune Allen Beach close to Topsail State Park. It’s a major reason why biking has become one of the most fun things to do on 30A.
Many of the rental properties on 30A now include complimentary beach cruiser bikes. Typically, the number of bikes included with the property is based on the number of bedrooms. For example, if you rent a 4 bedroom house in Seacrest Beach through a property management company that has an in-house bike program, it will most likely include four adult size beach cruisers. Most of the property management companies will have additional bikes and kids attachments available for rent if you need more than what’s included.
If your vacation rental does not include cruisers or if you’re just visiting South Walton for a day, there are plenty of bike rental companies on 30A. Each year new bike rental businesses open so choosing the right one for your particular situation can be confusing. That is the reason why I decided to share my list of the Top Five 30A Bike Rental Companies below so let’s get started…
Top Five Bike Rentals on 30A
My family moved to South Walton County about 5 years ago from the great state of Wisconsin. Almost immediately upon arrival I got into the 30A bike rental business and have been involved with it ever since. I know the ins and outs of the industry really well which is why this list was easy to compile.
All of the 30A bike rentals listed below offer high-quality beach cruisers and awesome customer service. They’re all run by genuinely nice people that truly care about the customer experience. Those common traits are major reasons why they have been so successful and make up my list of the Top Five 30A Bike Rentals listed in no particular order below…
Salt Air 30A
Salt Air 30A is conveniently located in WaterSound Beach at the Hub. When I first moved to SoWal five years ago I worked for the owners and saw first hand just how passionate they are about providing great service. Salt Air 30A has a huge fleet of colorful beach cruisers, 3-speed bikes and Electra Townie Go! pedal-assist bikes.
They are one of the few 30A bike rentals that have the electric pedal assist bikes available. If you’re looking to conquer the entire 18-mile Timpoochee Trail then a great way to do it is on an Electra pedal-assist bike! I recently attended the grand opening of Frankie’s Bike Shop which is located behind Salt Air 30A (owned by same people) and they let me test ride one of their Electra Townie Go! pedal-assist bikes. I was blown away by how much fun they are to ride and easy they are to operate. Salt Air is the top 30A Bike Rental Company on the East end of the 30A corridor.

Important 30A Bike Rental Notes
- The awesome folks at Visit South Walton put together a fantastic Mile by Mile description of the Timpoochee Trial which you’ll find here… Guide to the Timpoochee Trail
- All of the 30A bike rental companies on my list are competitively priced, deliver and offer daily plus weekly rates. In addition, they all have kids bike attachments such as trailers, Weehoo, Tag-A-Longs and more available for rent.
- La Dolce Vita didn’t make my top 5 because they recently started renting bikes. However, they are a premier beach rental service that originated in Destin and have been around since 2004. I’ve noticed that in 2018 they’ve become a big player on 30A and I think it’s worth checking out their bike rental program.
- Locks and helmets are included with all bike rentals on 30A. Make sure to use the bike locks as unlocked bikes tend to get taken during the busy season. Nothing kills a 30A vacation buzz like having to pay for a stolen bike so please lock them up.
