Along the breathtaking aquatic shoreline and the aromatic scent of coconut, jasmine, and passion flowers, there is one sight that Key West visitors and locals alike will see every morning: bike enthusiasts enjoying the splendors of Lloyd’s Tropical Bike Tour which has operated since 1991.
Lloyd, the owner and tour operator, has one motto, “Do what you love, love what you do, and the world will come to you.” He built his business model around his love for the island, his devotion to nature, and his desire to welcome visitors to the sites and sounds he enjoys most.
Most importantly to his business is his need to make each person feel welcome. He sets out each morning to make each tour an interactive, personal experience by introducing tour participants to the locals which makes the island feel like home to those traveling from afar.
He also knows the ins and outs of the island which means you get the type of tour that a car or bus would miss because of the ability to navigate to places of interest. Inaccessible otherwise From unique architecture to the history of the Keys, you learn from a local’s advantage point.
You also get to experience the quaint, local shops that are often outside of the touristy areas. Lloyd makes sure to let anyone on his tour experience everything from tropical fruits like sapodilla, sour oranges, star fruit, and Barbados cherries to tasty key lime coconut patties.
You also enjoy the abundance of the locally grown fresh coconuts, papayas, mangoes, pineapples, and bananas found in Key West. With vendors all along your tour route, you will have plenty of time during the two-hour tour to experience tasty local brews and fruity flavors.
Another unforgettable experience is the exotic flowers that line the city streets and private gardens all throughout the island. From frangipani, gardenia, and allspice, Lloyd’s goal is to provide an exclusive sensory experience to see, taste, touch, and smell the richness of Key West.
Whether you are visiting us at Conch Concierge Weddings or one of the other local businesses, we highly recommend taking the time to enjoy Lloyd’s Tropical Bike Tour because of the once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet a man who truly enjoys sharing the best of Key West with others. This unique, indigenous Key West adventure is a wonderful way to create a family activity to keep your wedding guests together and interacting with each other while experiencing the best of Key West presented by one of Key West’s true “local characters.”
