Spring is right around the corner. If you have an upcoming trip to Nantucket, MA and want to get around the island in style, it is suggested to rent the bikes you’ll need as early as possible to ensure you and your family get exactly what you want.

In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of making an early reservation for your bike rental before you head out on your trip and why it will make your trip one you’ll remember fondly for years to come.

You’ll guarantee you have the bikes you need

It may be obvious, but there is something to be said about having everything in place for your vacation. When you plan your bike rentals well before you head out on your trip, you’ll not only ensure you have the bikes that you and your family desire, but you will have peace of mind in knowing there’s one less thing to worry about.

You can start planning activities

Once you have reserved your bike rentals, you can start planning fun activities that can be accessed by bike. When you have your bikes in place early enough, it will allow you to make reservations for everything you wish to see on the island before things get sold out.

Some popular tourist attractions that can be accessed by bike on the island include Jetties Beach, Siasconset Beach, as well as the popular Nantucket Wine and Food Festival and Nantucket Restaurant Week, which both occur in the late spring.

Even if you don’t plan on checking these things out, reserving your rental early enough will allow you to plan which of the many different bike routes you wish to take on Nantucket.
