Sanibel isn't Sanibel without a bike! I like Finnimore's because they are always professional and helpful and at a good central location. One time I was renting a place that had its own bikes, but the tires were flat. I took the bike to Finnimore's and they filled the tires, no charge and seemed happy to do it. That made me a faithful customer.

Rented a bike for a week during trip to Captiva Island. Great price, excellent service and bike was in great shape. Delivery to resort was very quick. Would use them again.

There is probably much debate by tourists over which of the two bike rental places on Sanibel Island are better. We like Finnimores for a few different reasons; the location is more convenient to where we stay, the staff is very friendly and their service is great, including helping fit the bike to you and/or addressing any issues with the bike during the rental period.They store their bikes inside, away from the island's salt air and humidity, so don't be discouraged away because it doesn't look like they have a large inventory. And even though the bikes are heavily used and sometimes look it, we have always found them to be in excellent working condition and to ride smoothly. The prices at both bike rentals are competitive, so that doesn't carry any weight in our decision.

We rented a 4 person roadster...nice smooth ride even with the youngest passenger not peddling. It was a bit hot but not too bad :) we really had fun!!!!

Great location if you want to ride to the nature preserve. We were headed to Billy's but saw this one first (coming from Captiva) so we stopped in. The rates at Finnimore's were a little cheaper than Billy's. The staff was all very friendly. They encouraged us to test drive a few bikes before leaving, including the cool eliptical style bike. Unfortunately I had the chain fall off my bike (probably my fault but frustrating none the less). Wife's bike had a bad rattle but it was ok otherwise. Suggest giving you bike a thorough check before leaving. Final word of caution - if you're planning to ride through the nater preserve, it's not a very nice ride. The surface of the road is very bumpy and uncomfortable for women. We didn't see much exciting wildlife either.
