One of the best ways to see Martha’s Vineyard is by taking advantage of Martha’s Vineyard bike rentals. The scenery on the Vineyard is fabulous and you really appreciate it while riding a bike around some of the side roads.
The Vineyard is larger than many folks realize and it is mostly flat, with some rolling hills, and perfect for biking. If you are a fitness fanatic, you can get in some nice 10 – 20 miles rides. Or, you can do some short tours through the charming neighborhoods of Edgartown, Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven.
One of our favorite rides is between Oak Bluffs and Edgartown along the beach. You can rent bikes in either Oak Dehradun Bike Rental Bluffs or Edgartown and ride towards the other town along the beach. This is a flat ride, with sidewalks and plenty of great scenery. Another good ride, although much further, is to bike from Vineyard Haven to Menemsha. This ride has some small rolling hills and is about 12 miles each way. You’ll pass through some beautiful country and farming areas and end up in the charming fishing village of Menemsha. Keep in mind, this is a very rural area so there are few stores.
If you prefer to ride on a very flat and safe bike path, the Vineyard has that too. There is a spectacular bike path between Vineyard Haven and Edgartown. It’s mostly flat, about 8 feet wide, and very popular with families. One possible drawback to this route is that the scenery is not as exciting as other routes on the island. You’ll pass through some fairly basic neighborhoods and not see the water or beach.
Of course there are multiple places that rent bikes on Martha’s Vineyard. You can find bike rentals in Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven. The Martha’s Vineyard campground also has rentals. We’ve rented bikes from Anderson’s in Oak Bluffs and had a great experience. They are located right next to the Oak Bluffs Harbor and the Hyline Cruises dock. They offer all sorts of bikes, touring bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid bikes, kids bikes etc. Your rental includes a helmet, island map and bike lock. They also provide a phone number for calling for assistance and they will come and help you if needed. If you are biking with kids, they have a great bike that pulls the kids bikes like a trailer.
