Sanibel is a great place to bike! It’s flat and easy to get around, with no hills at all (unless you count the new causeway bridge).
There is great weather most of the time. We can be out biking when our friends up north are huddled in front of the fire or out shoveling snow.
There are great things to see and do on a bike in Sanibel. Sanibel has more path-miles connecting more important community resources than any other small town in the country. For example:
You can use your bike to run your daily errands to shops, to the grocery store, to school, to art class, to the library, to church, to city hall, to the post office. When you are finished running errands, you can use your bike to get to the fun things people like to do on Sanibel…..the beach, Ding Darling, the Shell Museum, the Historical Village, the movies, the fishing pier, the lighthouse, you name it. So biking on Sanibel can be a lot of fun, and once you start using your bike to do all these things, it becomes a unique lifestyle.
And it’s all so easy, because Sanibel is one of the most bike-friendly places you’ll ever find. The path system connects most places, and most of the paths are now located safely away from vehicular traffic. When you are tired of riding on the paths, the island has pleasant streets to explore.
Sanibel’s path system has been recognized as one of the island’s “crown jewels” by visitors, by residents, by our City Government and by the greater biking world. It’s one of the things that bring people back year after year, along with the island’s beaches, its shells, its waters, its birds and other wildlife.
Biking can also be good for you, in a couple of ways: It’s good exercise for your body and your mind. It can get your circulation going, give you a good cardio workout, clear your mind and reduce stress. It’s also good for the environment, since riding a bike uses no oil and puts no pollution into the atmosphere.
So get out there and start pedaling!
