Bicycle Maps & Routes


Myrtle Beach offers bicycle lanes and paths throughout the city.  Bicycles are allowed on the beach before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. from May 1 through Labor Day.  Bicycles are allowed on the boardwalk only between 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. from May 1 through Labor Day.  There's no afternoon window for bicycles on the boardwalk during the peak summer months.  Below, you'll find a helpful bicycle safety brochure and a map of designated bicycle lanes and multipurpose paths.


  1. Bicyclists riding on the roadway must travel in the extreme right lane in the direction of the traffic — not against it!
  2. Bicyclists should ride on bike paths or in designated bicycle lanes, such as those located on Mr. Joe White Avenue or North Ocean Boulevard.
  3. Bicyclists must obey all road signs and traffic signals, and must give turn signals just as motorists do.
  4. Bicyclists should not disregard the rights of pedestrians and motorists — respect them just as you want them to respect you.
  5. It is illegal to ride through a pedestrian crosswalk.  Climb off the bike and walk your bicycle across the road.
  6. A bicyclist riding in the dark must have a headlight on the front of his bicycle and a red reflector on the rear.
  7. Never carry additional passengers on a bicycle!
  8. Watch motorists carefully!  They may be talking on a cell phone, texting, eating…  But they are bigger than you are so, as the saying goes, “give a fool a wide berth.”
  9. Protect your head.  Wear a helmet!


Did you know that many of the city’s public beach access points have bicycle racks?  Bicycles do not need parking decals and parking is free.  The following beach access locations offer bike racks:  Anderson Park, Breakers Park, Cameron Park, Gardens by the Sea Park, Hurl Rocks Park, Plyler Park, 14th Avenue Pier and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk at First through Ninth Avenues North.  You’ll find racks at the beach accesses on the residential street ends at 82nd, 79th, 78th, 66th, 63rd, 51st, 49th, 48th, 46th, 44th, 43rd, 41st, 39th and 34th Avenues North.  And,  bike racks are now available at Ninth, 16th, 25th and 29th Avenues South.  Many parks and city buildings also provide bike racks.
