Upon arriving at the bike shop, you'll be fitted with your bicycle and begin your approximately three-hour pedal through town.

You will see the highlights of Key West, of which there are many. Pass Simonton Street Beach, the Green Parrot Bar, Key West Cemetery, Higgs Beach and the Southernmost Point of the United States, just 90 miles north of Cuba.

Of particular note is the Customs House, which presides over historic Mallory Square. Dating to 1891, the faithfully restored, four-story architectural gem was originally home to the island's customs office, postal service and district courts. "Old 91" is today a national landmark and headquarters of the Key West Art & Historical Society.

Another slice of local history unfolds as you approach the Presidential Gates of the Harry S. Truman Little White House. Built in 1890 as the first officer's quarters on the submarine base naval station, the abode served as Harry S. Truman's base of presidential operations during his 11 visits to Key West.

Of course, Key West also is known as the home of Ernest Hemingway. During your bike ride, you will see the residence located at 907 Whitehead Street, across from the Key West lighthouse, where the famed writer lived from 1931 to 1939.

One of Hemingway's legendary haunts was Sloppy Joe's Bar. Founded in 1933, the bar was located on Greene Street, just off Duval Street, during Hemingway's day. The bar has since moved to its current location on Duval Street, taking with it its storied connections to Hemingway, who suggested the name for the establishment.

Other landmarks on today's roster include Dog Beach, Flagler Train Depot, Jimmy Buffet's first house, and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, the Duval Street watering hole that embodies the laid-back lyrics of the beloved singer/songwriter.

After returning to the bike shop you will finish with a slice of Key Lime pie, a refreshing must-taste here in Key West.

Sara was our tour guide and we all had a wonderful time. We had 7 teenagers with us and they enjoyed the trip through Key West and got to know the layout of the island. Sara showed us the touristy sights but also tailored the tour to what we were interested in. Lots of great pictures!!!

Sarah, our tour guide, was wonderful. he could tell my teens weren't interested in too much history, so she tailored our ride accordingly and made it fun and interesting. I loved learning about the history of the island, and actually got a bunch of dining/entertainment ideas from her that we ended up doing later. The ONLY downside was the nearly... More

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. I'm sorry it was hot, that's why we schedule only morning tours in the summer months, and also why we give everyone a large bottle of water. I'm glad you liked the tour, and the free slice of pie is in an air conditioned building! Thanks for taking the time... More

We had a great time with Clint on Saturday morning. The weather was quite sunny, but he made sure we all had shade when we stopped. His knowledge of Key West was outstanding! This is a must-do for all first time Key West visitors!

This was one of the best things our family did while we were in Key West! Clint got us all set up with bicycles. Our guide, Sarah, was so upbeat and knowledgeable, she felt like a long-lost friend, rather than someone we'd just met. We rode at a good pace, but not too fast for folks who don't ride often,...
