Rent a bike at the beach

🎼Let’s take it back to the beach 🎶

#23. Rent a bike on the beach

📍South Beach, KZN

🥳Fun factor: beach + bike + breeze + bae = BEST!

🏋🏾‍♀️Fitness level: if you can ride a bike (or vaguely remember being able to do so in your youth), then don’t think twice. This was wonderfully relaxed and easy. South beach is flat so it’s a breezy beautiful ride. You’ll have a great time.

👧🏾 Suitability for Kids: yebo! They also have bikes for kids (no training wheels) so why not make it a family affair – #memoriesaremadelikethis

💸Cost: R50 for 30min, R70 for 1hr, R140 for a tandem…but think hard before you try be cute #justsaying (check out Instagram highlight #23)

🤩 What we loved most:
– This type of ride isn’t about clocking mileage or distance, it’s about letting your hair blow back (even a jiggle in the ‘fro counts) and soaking up the sun & scenery.
– The ocean did its thing – that thing where it just lifts your spirit and makes you feel better.

🚦 What you need to know: Husbae and I thought we’d be cute and ride the tandem bike. Ha! We didn’t make it 100m. He kept telling me to stop trying to control the bike. I kept telling him he needs to control it better. It didn’t take us long to agree that this type of cute doesn’t work for us 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ So, just a heads up – use it don’t use it.

In short: once we decided it’s every man/woman for themselves, we had the best time. You always see this scene in movies, right? The young couple cruising along the beach, wind brushed hair, laughing into the sun. Try it in real life! It’s a vibe.

Ps – there are many places to rent bikes along the beach and all pretty affordable. This time we used @oceanventuresushaka , but there’s also @xpressiondurban (we love them) , Bike & Saddle closer to north beach and many more. Walk along the beach and you’ll find a place.
