A bike tour meandering by one of our beaches.
And I'm not saying better, either, it's just that a Key West bike tour is more "Stop and smell the roses" as opposed to, say, a Key West trolley tour. And I mean that literally! Bike tours will stop and go into detail with you. You'll experience it with all of your senses, and in my opinion, that's how you do a tour.
And man, are the tours that I recommend an experience!
Kids love bike tours. Which is good, since I don't recommend bringing them into a bar.
I wasn't kidding earlier, a blind woman did go on a bike tour, and said it was one of the greatest experiences of her life! Sounds like a really cool person, too.
As for the younger and older folks, they can usually be accommodated via a tandem bike, child bike seat, or that funny-looking extension thingy that's attached to an adult bike for the in-between-sized child.
Groups? No problem. The bike tours that I recommend can accommodate groups large or small. Bachelorette parties, corporate groups, families--if you like, you can "charter" your own private tour!
If the Key West bike tour isn't enough for you, a two-day, Florida Keys bike tour may be just the thing.
For a serious bike tour, how about a one or two-day ride covering the entire 100+ miles of the Florida Keys? You'll start at the top of the Keys, in Key Largo, and ride to the halfway point in Marathon (stopping for drinks, lunch, and some sightseeing along the way), where you'll check into your hotel, relax and have a sunset dinner. You'll finish the trip on day two, of course stopping for lunch and drinks and some more sightseeing, ending up at the Southernmost Point monument. There's a van for emergencies, so don't worry.
The one-day tour, known a the "Century Ride", is for the hard-core, 'cause, you know, riding a bicycle 100 miles in one day is no joke. Only the serious need apply.
During the annual Zombie Bike Ride in October. As fun as it sounds.
You can kill two birds with one stone on a Key West bike tour: You'll get a really cool history lesson while burning off some of those mojitos, conch fritters, and key lime pies that you've been chowing down on.
Did you know that Key West once fought to keep slaves from being returned to their masters after their ship wrecked? That harvesting sponges was once the biggest industry on the island? That missiles were once set up along the beaches, ready for the start of World War III?
Did you know that this is some of the things you can learn, while stopping to eat a mango that's just been pulled out of a tree?
A leisurely ride on a tropical island, gleaning it's knowledge, and burning calories in the process. Sounds like a good day to me!
What better way to justify all of the food and drink you know you'll be eating, than to know you'll burn some of it off and learn something in the process?
