The rental stations are fun to use because they have all the bikes set up and ready to go. You use cash or a credit card to get the bikes, and you simply pull them off the station when it is time to ride. You are charged for your trip when returning to the rental station, and everyone attaches their bikes to the kiosk again.
The bike rental is the cheapest and simplest way for you to enjoy the scenery and weather. You can, of course, stop any time you like, and the bikes are easy to use because they are simple road bikes with few gears.
Let your kids ride with you, and check out the map of the Loop Trail before setting off. You might want to get bikes for everyone, or this could be a bike rental you do because you want to get out in the fresh air.
This is one of the cheapest and simplest ways to invest in your vacation. Take the bikes all the way down the Loop Trail, ask everyone to come along, and spend much less money on a very fun activity.

Closer in, enjoy the shade of mesquite bosques and the Sun Circle ceremonial structure. You'll have more than 30 miles of mapped out riding options to explore. Ride hard or relax. There are plenty of parks along the route with bathrooms, water, and shady areas to rest. There's even a Trader Joe's along the route if you need a snack break.
