Biking on Ocracoke Island is Awesome

Ocracoke Island is ideal for bike riding. There's a vibrant biking community and bikes can be found parked outside every Ocracoke establishment. Everywhere you look people are on bikes. On Ocracoke, you can explore Ocracoke Village, use your bike to run errands, bike to shops, unique galleries and restaurants.  Biking is a popular way to visit the Ocracoke Lighthouse and Springer's Point Preserve. In the village, the narrow streets can get crowded, especially in the summer. This makes biking a fast and easy way to get around.
