Gear Up with E-Bikes in South Walton
Electric bikes have really picked up speed in South Walton recently – they’re a great way to enjoy the freedom of a bike paired with the confidence that a little boost is waiting for you when you need it. Get anywhere you need to go, and never worry about whether you have the energy to get back!
You have your pick of peddling purveyors. Pedego 30A, the area’s first all-electric bicycle shop, allows you to buy or rent an e-bike, as well as get yours serviced if necessary. Located at WaterColor Crossing, it’s centrally positioned, and just a half mile from the sugar-white beaches of Scenic Highway 30A as well as Point Washington State Forest’s trails. YOLO Board + Bike allows you to choose between stand-up paddleboarding and bikes of the standard or electric variety, along with Coastal Cruisers and several others!
Biking is one of our favorite ways to explore South Walton for many reasons. The whole area was built to be easy to access on a bike, with plenty of paths, bike parking and open spaces. There’s no need to worry about traffic or parking with your e-bike – e-bikes are classified by law as bicycles, which means that you can safely ride on the bike paths. Plus, they're a great green alternative to driving. Park the car and enjoy the great outdoors, exercise or even commute without using a drop of gas!
And electric bikes are extremely versatile. They can be pedaled manually or electrically (or not at all), and assist the rider to speeds up to 20 mph, which means you can choose how hard you want to work. Heading to dinner and don’t want to work up a sweat on the way? Let the bike do the work for you. Looking to see how many miles you can ride? Get a little speed boost, and let the bike help you get home if you need it.
Rentals are available by the hour, day or week, so you can take one for a spin at your leisure. If you like it, go car-free for your entire trip! Take our neighborhood beach rides and get a view of the sights like you’ve never experienced before. Group and private tours are also available!
