Sanibel is a beautiful, sub-tropical barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, blessed with sunshine, beaches, lush vegetation, abundant wildlife, quiet streets and 23 miles of paved shared-use paths. In short, Sanibel is a paradise for cycling.
The Sanibel Bicycle Club was formed in 1994 and over the years has grown to include several hundred members. The club has three distinct missions:
- To promote cycling for recreation, transportation and health.
- To advocate for improvements in the safety and infrastructure of Sanibel’s shared-use path system.
- To provide an opportunity for cycling enthusiasts to socialize together.
Major Club activities include weekly Saturday morning breakfast rides, monthly “Off-Island Ride” trips to other interesting locations in South Florida, monthly potluck dinners and an annual picnic at the beach to kick off the new riding season.
The Club’s members include recreational cyclists of all levels, from casual to serious, and even non-cyclists who support Sanibel’s path system. It’s a friendly group who are always ready to welcome new members.
