Explore the New Smyrna Beach Area on Two Wheels

Explore the New Smyrna Beach Area on two wheels this summer. Biking enthusiasts of all levels will enjoy hitting the trails that crisscross the region’s abundant parks and green spaces, as well as quaint neighborhood streets and the wide-open beach to create lifelong memories with family and friends.

Hit The Trails

The East Central Regional Rail Trail, a former railroad track, runs more than 50 miles, leading from the state’s interior to the coast in Edgewater. This flat trail traverses parks, wetlands, and forests, making it a popular destination for cyclists of all ages and abilities. A northerly spur, the Dale Avenue SUN Trail, features a 12-foot-wide paved surface, perfect for cruising along on two wheels. Parking is available near the trail, off West Park Avenue. 

Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve

Take a spin through the forest in the Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve. With more than 10 miles of well-marked bike trails, cyclists can make their ride as short or as long as they’d like. The 3.9-mile Doris Leeper Trail, open to biking, walking, and horseback riding, passes through several ecosystems, including the beach and tropical wooded areas. Make sure to keep an eye on the trail markers while riding because some trails are just for walkers. The preserve can be accessed through multiple entrances, and parking is available in several lots throughout.

Pedaling Through the Area’s Charming Streets

Exploring the town of New Smyrna Beach by bicycle is also a great way to spend the afternoon. Whether cruising down the roads along the ocean or picking their way through the Historic District, riders are sure to see interesting sights and find plenty of spots to stop and relax or enjoy a snack. Some areas to check out include the 4-mile Saxon Trail between Beach Road and 3rd Street, the bike path on Riverside Drive along the Indian River, and the New Smyrna Beach recreation path from Sugar Mill Drive to West Pine Street. 

Bicyclists can also take a spin on the beach in areas with hard-packed sand. Generally, the beaches south of 27th Street are closed to bikes because the sand is too soft. The best time to roll onto the beach is at low tide, where there is more room to cruise and the sand is at its firmest. 

Where to Rent a Bicycle?

Visitors don’t need to worry about bringing their own bicycles from home. The New Smyrna Beach Area has several rental spots, for both pedal-powered bikes and those with an electronic assist. Both Pedego and Flaunt Electric Bicycle rental ebikes by from a half-day to a full day to multiple days. For a non-electric rental, Beyond the Waves offers both single-speed and geared models, and will even make adjustments to the saddle height to ensure the best experience for any rider.
