Safety knowledge before visiting Hilton Head Island with this bike rentals video guide

Bike rentals are one of the best ways to experience the beautiful Hilton Head Island scenery Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina have to offer. This four-minute safety video will help you become more familiar with bike safety practices as well as the underpass, which allows you to cross 278 safely from Palmetto Dunes to Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina. The most important message to note is that vehicles have the right-of-way, so be sure you stop at all the red stop signs with the bike symbol and look both ways before you cross!
