Amelia Island?
Quote | Reply
Heading to Amelia Island outside Jacksonville next weekend for some beach time with the family. Any place to rent a decent road bike? Is it warm enough this time of year to warrant bringing the wetsuit for a swim? Any must do things to do? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I would definitely bring a wetsuit if you are going to swim in the ocean. I am not sure on the rental but you might be able to find something in Jacksonville.

Just got back from there last week and totally agree. Water was real cold. Also, the week I was there the surf was way too rough to swim, would have been suicidal. My daughter and I just splashed around in the breaking waves and got pretty cold just doing that. Still, a great family place to go if you are looking for some early spring sun. Real nice beach, weather was sunny and in the 60-70s, a lot of nice places to run (all flat), nice YMCA with an outdoor pool and lots of bike lanes. I did not do any real riding but we rented beach cruisers at a new shop called SuperCorsa Bikes that has nice Bianchi road bikes to rent daily or weekly. Plan to do that when we go down again next year.
