I don't know much about M/V except that is way bigger than Nantucket. One of my coworkers sons did his first half century last week, his summer camp group had to go around twice to do it. Middle island to madaket to sconset then around again.
Nantucket is very bike friendly, the NRTA has racks, when you call a cab just ask for one with a bike rack, it may take longer but if you are tired it is worth it. I would be sure to have a bell or horn since stroller dodging can be scary.
If you ferry here I belive it is 5$ for a bike but could be free if you are savy. I wouldn't rent since then it easy to tell you aren't from around here. Also, rentals are rather expensive IMO. But I have been wanting to rent a tandem, if only my wife was as crazy as I am.
Youngs bike shop has a free map with the bike paths highlighted and they are on The Strip which is right next to the Steam Ship wharf.
Pm me if you want more details or tips. Or have more specific questions.
