We highly recommend bicycling in Key West, especially the Old Town area. Locals love their one-speed beach-style bicycles, known as Conch Cruisers. There are plenty of bike rental places in Key West. One of our favorite bike rental companies in Key West is Island Bicycles, located at 929 Truman Avenue (you can call them at 305-292-9709). They have a decidedly funky, reggae vibe and a good selection of quality rentals.

A shuttle from the hotel to the downtown area is also provided, making travel on the island easy.

Climate: Key West has a warm, subtropical climate. Hurricane season (Jun–Nov) is humid and rainy. Peak travel is Jan–Apr. Typically temperature is 24 C - 33 C year round highs, lows average between 21 C - 27C.

Keep in mind that though Key West is bicycle friendly, you must exercise caution while riding and obey ALL traffic laws. Bike lights are REQUIRED for riding at night.
