    Bike Rental - Biloxi, MS area

    ALL, I'll be headed down to Biloxi in a coupe weeks and can't take my bike with me. Can anyone recommend a bike rental place in that area? I'll be there for about 6 weeks. Not really stuck on one bike type so any information is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I'm heading down to Bay Saint Louis in a couple weeks for a couple weeks. Did you find any info on trails in the area? I'll probably just be using my Dad's bike, but would still like to get outside. All I've heard about in the area is the Bethel trails area.

    If you're willing ot drive a bit you have the spillway just west of New Orleans and you also have the USA and Chickasawbogue trails in Mobile, AL to the east.

    It is Hunting Season for the Biloxi Trails, so I would plan a mid-afternoon ride, and wear orange.

    Thanks for the links. I will try to be highly visible too!

    Are most of the trails down there well marked? Is it tick season or anything else to watch out for?

    Which trails? Most of them are pretty well marked. Bethel is marked, but some markers have gotten taken down, but there is some confusing parts.

    Nola, just keep left when in doubt, its good though.
    P-cola is well marked
    USA is marked well once you get into the trail (go White markers)
    Chickasabogue can get confusing, just use the map and all trails touch the access road
    Tuffburg is supposedly marked now.

    Nothing special except Bethel, it is hunting season. You might find the occasional tick, but nothing out of normal.

    Great. With any luck I will be able to get in a ride or two in Bethel, a ride on the USA trails, and maybe (but not very likely) a day on the UFW trails in Pensacola.

    Is there a bike lane or path between Bay Saint Louis and Gulfport? Maybe along the beach? That is something I could access from the front door.

    There is a nice big wide sidewalk running the beach in Gulfport that you can ride on, people ride bikes up and down it all the time. I'm not sure if it does down all the way to Bay St. Louis, but if it doesn't then it starts right outside Bay St. Louis and runs all the way to Ocean Springs.

    If you need any info or help just PM I'll give you my number.
