For some time I've been collecting information on user experiences taking bikes on planes, trains,
buses, boats, etc. There's lots of stuff on rentals, folding bikes, boxing, airlines, and railroads
around the world and how to ride in/out of about 120 airports.
There are a number of reports on Caribbean Islands

Mike, I'm an avid cyclist and I've visited St John several times, but I've never been masochistic
enough to try cycling there. The roads are narrow and often very steep. That being said, I have seen
a few bikes on the roads there, but usually early in the day before there is much traffic. They even
have a yearly race from one end of the island to the other but for that event they usually close off
the roads to cars. As for rentals, I've never seen any, but then again I haven't been back there for
two years. Good Luck. Scott
About 15 years ago I went to St Thomas and St John. I don't know if things have changed. St Thomas
was over-run by cars. I wouldn't want to ride a bike on St Thomas. The traffic is fast and
aggressive and the attitudes seemed to border on malicious. From St Thomas I took a bike on a ferry
over to St John. It was a wonderful experience. Be prepared for heat and hills, and no where to get
water. Absolutely beautiful.

Not only is it VERY hilly (except the coast which is only kinda hilly) the roads are indeed
narrow AND they drive on the "wrong side" of the road. Besides the obvious problem for you, a lot
of the drivers are use to driving on the other side of the road and you don't want to be a
I would do try the bahamas , grand caymen or Cuba
If you do it anyway, please let us know how it went.
