By virtue of its flat terrain, broad avenues, and long straight stretches of highway, Grand Bahama is perfect for bicycling. There's a designated biking lane on Midshipman Road.
When biking, wear sunblock, carry a bottle of water, and keep left when riding on the road. Inexpensive bicycle rentals are available from some resorts, and the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach allows guests free use of bicycles. In addition to its other ecotouring options, Grand Bahama Nature Tours offers 10-mile biking excursions that include a visit to a native settlement and Garden of the Groves.
CocoNutz Cruisers. CocoNutz is locally owned and operated and offers the only motorized bicycle experience on the island–-the bicycles pedal themselves!
