Round, round, get around…

With a tip of the hat to the Beach Boys, in Key West there are several ways to get around.  By foot, automobile, scooter, bicycle, taxi, and electric car/cart thingies.  All of them can be rented; well not the by foot but you get my point.  Many of the locals got around by bicycle to and from work on some uniquely decorated bikes.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen bicycles with cup holders or a child’s seat that was in front of you before.  Mentioning bicycles, you could also (for a sum of $5 a minute – what?!?) get someone to pedal you from one point to another.  We did a lot of walking – easily around 4 miles a day – and rented some bicycles.  The bike rental prices ranged from $7 to $15 a day and they are all coaster bikes, which really threw me off for a moment or two when I tried to break by squeezing the handlebar ferociously until I remembered to pedal backwards.

Great exercise and cheap way to get around and see the area!

    Mainly due to its size, I doubt if there’s another American community where bikes play such a prominent role. Gives the island some character, not that there aren’t enough characters there already. 🙂
