We sincerely thank our valued customers, the citizens of Galveston County and our amazing staff for making this happen. The process for selection is lengthy and includes public votes for nominations, another vote to identify finalists, and finally, a ballot to choose the winners. These accolades follow previous public polling awards from, where we claimed the Best of the Island honor in both 2020, 2021 and 2022 for Best Bike Rental Company.
