In a move to help meet demand for rental motorcycles, EagleRider will open the doors to a new location in Bradenton, FL. Bradenton sits on the Manatee River, 46 miles south of Tampa. The town is 117 miles to the Orlando theme parks and 172 miles from Daytona Beach. South Beach is roughly a day’s ride at 245 miles.
The town of Bradenton, however, has its own attractions, including a relaxing Riverwalk Park for stretching those biker legs. The area also features the South Florida Museum, which has natural and cultural history exhibits and encompasses the Bishop Planetarium and Parker Manatee Aquarium. Art galleries, studios and shops occupy restored 1920s and ‘30s cottages in the working arts community of the Village of the Arts. The Terra Ceia Aquatic Park is a short putt away, just seven miles to the 2,000 acre park encompassing mangrove forests and freshwater and saltwater wetlands.
Other attractions include the Robinson Preserve, DeSoto National Memorial Park, Cortez fishing village and the Manatee Village Historical Park, which includes a restored courthouse, one-room schoolhouse, farmhouse, general store, boat shop, steam engine and a Florida cowboy bunkhouse. The Gulf shores of Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach are nearby.
