lets-go-ride-a-bikeWe at Friends of the Legacy Trail are often asked about Bike Rental for The Trail.  We sent emails asking each of our business members if they rent bikes and if so, to send along information that they would want a potential customer to know about.

Pedego Electric Bikes:  Bike Rental Page    (Map)

A Pedego Electric Bike is the best way to experience all that Sarasota has to offer, including the Legacy Trail and Siesta Key. A Pedego is just like a regular bike – only better! You can pedal normally (or not) and get power when you want it.  You have the freedom to go farther and faster, and to conquer hills and headwinds with ease. It feels like being a kid again!

Stop by and rent a Pedego Bike from the friendly, helpful staff at Pedego Sarasota. We promise an unforgettable experience that is sure to be the highlight of your trip.

We are located at 3460 Clark Road, Sarasota, FL 34231

Located in Palmer Ranch:

Popcycles:  Bike Rental Page     (Map)
We rent Electra “Townie” bicycles because they are bikes with loads of personality and comfort.  Townie’s are the #1 selling bikes in the U.S because:
  • The pedal forward design, upright, relaxed riding position makes them comfy, stable and fun to ride even if you haven’t been on a bike since you were a kid!
  • You can plant your feet flat on the ground easily without leaving the saddle.
  • The saddle is nice and wide (so you’ll be able to walk the next day)
  • Some have a swooped top tube that allows easy step through.

See Rental Page for prices.  We provide a helmet, lock, basket and include a bottle of water with each rental.
