Yes. There are places that will rent bikes. Where are you staying? which part of town?

Thanx. We're staying @ Holiday Inn Lido Beach, Sarasota. Have a rental car but if we can *not* use it that would be a plus - we like to walk and/or cycle.

You would have to take the car to the Legacy Trail...the map on the website shows trailheads...it is not near Lido Key.

You can drive to Siesta Key Bike and Kayak rent bikes and a bike rack.

There is no vehicle traffic allowed on the Trail..it is pedestrians and bikes only.

Hi Scan. Have you been to Lido Key before? Let me know how you like it ;-)

You are perfectly located on Lido to leave your car behind for St Armand's.

Yes, that's partly why we chose that location. No, we haven't been there before. Nearest was Treasure Island, although I suspect we may have driven fairly close a few years back.

I wanted to bike the Legacy Trail myself 2 years ago and could not find a bike shop close to the trail. At the end of my vacation I spoke to the very nice people at Siesta Bike and Kayak and they offered to bring to bikes over to the trailhead for me and pick them back up at the end of my ride. I did not take them up on it but will this year.
