Love those Wildwood days? We bet you would love them even more cruising through the island’s streets on a sleek Smitty’s bicycle. Smitty’s Parking & Bike Rental, located at the corner of Young and Ocean Avenues in Wildwood, has been in business since the 1960s and has been family owned and operated since 1997.
With years of experience under their belts, its owners have made Smitty’s a go-to destination for family and friends of all ages by offering a large variety of premium bikes to choose from. And this summer season, Smitty’s has debuted ALL new inventory.
The Surrey, a four-wheeled bike, is Smitty’s most popular rental and is available in both a two or four seated style. These are perfect for families with children or large groups that want to ride together to tour the town.
Try cycling with a friend on a Smitty’s bicycle built for two. The brand-new electric blue tandem bikes are a smooth ride and an even better deal. These two-seaters are an old school concept and especially fun for couples. For only $15 for an hour of riding, the tandem bike is a great way to take a break from the beach with a pedaling buddy. In riding a tandem bike, the front rider is responsible for steering while both riders should get ready to pedal. Try the tandem for yourself and enjoy the thrill of teamwork!
Standard cruisers and helmets are also available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colors for every age.
Smitty’s provides bike rentals for as low as $8 an hour for a single bike, making bicycling affordable for any budget. For additional savings, they also offer a two-for-one special, where you can ride two hours for the price of one hour available any time after 11 a.m. daily on all bicycles. All bikes are rented on an hourly basis, so you won’t find yourself paying for an entire day if you only plan on riding for a short time.
Smitty’s ensures that all of their guests have a safe and pleasurable experience, and they do so by keeping their inventory current and innovated. Here, no bike is over two years old. New this summer season, Smitty’s Army Bike cruiser costs only $2 more to rent and offers an instant upgrade of bikers’ style. With its army green frame and rims, black handlebars, and star decals, the Army Bike stands out in a crowd of typical pastel-colored cruisers. Take a long ride on this brand new cruiser’s wide, comfortable seat.
Smitty’s Bike Rental is conveniently located right off the boardwalk, near the Wildwoods Convention Center, making it an ideal location for joy-riding and sight-seeing. Smitty’s offers free parking for as long as you ride so no need to worry about feeding the meter. Make sure this summer you, “Stop by and Say Hello!”
