We have an air pump station outside of Southern Adventures that is free and turned on 24-7. Please make sure you do not over-inflate your tires, to prevent damage to your bicycle and possible injury.
The Bike Shop is located in the Southern Adventures Center at the back of the RAC in for your convenience. Bikes can NOT be brought through the front gates of the RAC, please utilize the Southern Adventures door.
Due to limited space, we strongly suggest that you call ahead to ensure that we have room to take your bike in for repair.

Your bike is considered a vehicle and you are responsible for following the rules of the road. We strongly recommend that if you have a personal bike or renting one from Southern Adventures, you check out this government safety video as well as read through some tips below.
- Do not ride a bike at night without lights (front and back)
- Remain on the right side of the road, you always want to ride with traffic
- Always wear a helmet (Southern Adventures rents helmets but for day and weekend use only)
- Make sure to always pay attention to pedestrians and traffic
- Be visible, do not wear dark colors in the evening
- Lock up your bike – ALWAYS
- Use hand signals
- Remember- it is your responsibility as a cyclist to yield to pedestrians.
*The Southern Adventures Bike Shop is open for bike repairs. However, we have limited space so we strongly suggest that you call ahead to ensure we have room to take your bike in for maintenance.
