Beach bikes & where to rent

Auto DraftAs you could probably ascertain by the name, fat bikes are sturdy. If a mountain bike and a Hummer had a baby, it would be a fat bike. They ride as comfortably as beach cruisers but have the gear range

and tire contact patch/ traction to take you over terrain you probably didn’t think was possible. If you’ve got the motor, fat bikes can probably get you up, over, or through it.

Bahama Mama’s in Manzanita rents tire bikes and sit down cruisers ready to cruise the beautiful beach in style. Call or visit in person to set up rental: (503) 368-BIKE, 123 Laneda Ave, Manzanita.Auto Draft

In Rockaway Beach? Troxel’s rents fat bikes too!

Both Manzanita Visitors Center and Troxels Gem & Jewelry Co. loan out free fat-tire wheelchairs for beach accessibility.
