Hilton Head is bicycle nirvana. It's flat and has 50 miles of paved public pathways and nature trails; everything interconnects; you can easily travel from resort to resort, and the beach sand is hard enough for good shore-side riding. Rental bikes seem to be available everywhere, and many companies offer free pick up and delivery.
