Tennis isn’t actually for everyone, and golf for a party of four or more can get a little pricey. But if you are looking for an easy way to stay active with your family, there’s one thing that probably everyone in your family can do – riding bikes together. Even if you have very small children, a bike trailer can make sure you can all enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Once you’ve got wheels, the next thing you want to do is find a place to bike with your family.

Miles of Award-Winning Trails

First, remember it’s best to keep your family on a designated trail for your ride. These paths have been paved and tested for everyone’s safety. Don’t worry about finding them – Hilton Head has 64 miles of trails around the community for your biking convenience. Keep to the safety guidelines, and you’ve got a safe and exciting day of adventure.

As the only Gold-Level Bicycle Friendly Community Award holder in the Southeast, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better way to explore the beautiful outdoors than in Hilton Head.

Where to Go

Next, choose your desired reason to get out. If your family wants to see some historic sites, choose a trail that takes you through Mitchelville. Your family might want to stick near the beach. If that’s the case, grab a few beach cruisers designed to trek through the sand and head off the trail by Sea Pines Resort. Looking to stay near a park so you can make a day of your ride with a picnic? Shelter Cove and Greens Shell are designed for just that.


No matter where you go, Hilton Head has bike-friendly kiosks stationed all along the pathways with maps to help make sure you don’t get lost. If you don’t think you have enough room in your car to bring a bike for everyone on your Hilton Head vacation, don’t fret! All-American Bike Rentals has everything you need for that family bike ride, ready when you get there.
