Staying active while on vacation is important. Walking half an hour each day is considered by the medical community to be enough for your health. Others prefer to have a more active vacation and opt for other activities like riding a bike. Most places have bike rentals for all kinds of bikes. Here are some unique bicycles which you can rent and drive around. I will be expanding this post as I come along more unique bike tours in my travel.
Real St, Intramuros, Manila, Metro Manila, Philipines. Telephone +63 2 525 8289
The Philippines is known for its bamboos. We make a lot of crafts and furniture from bamboos. It is a sturdy wood which can sway with the wind without losing strength, so it is also used as scaffolding on construction sites. Bambike was established in 2010 and is located in the historical Old Manila (Intramuros). During the Spanish times, the Spaniards lived behind these walls. The local Filipinos lived outside. A lot of the buildings and roads and structures are preserved so it is a unique place to bike around. Seeing Manila on a bamboo bike has some kind of nostalgia into it. Try their ecotours around Old Manila.
Coeur d’Alene, Hayden, Idaho 83835, USA. Telephone +1 208-449-1013
Picture a pub-crawl on this bike. Yes, everyone can drink but everyone has to pedal as well. There are 14 seats on board and all tours can be customised to your wishes.
Tom’s Landing, 78 Ricker Avenue Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459 Telephone +1 850-598-7949
If you want to bike but also be in the water. I chose a random rental site along the Emerald Coast of Florida. This (once) forgotten coast in the northern gulf is now becoming more popular again. Do not forget your sunscreen and your life jacket. They have bikes for couples and also singular ones for this who prefer to have their own bike.
As mentioned at the start of the post, I will be expanding this article as I come across new unique bike tours.
