You can add over 20 miles of mixed use biking/walking trails to the list of things Sanibel Island has to offer. No matter where you are staying on the island, it's a pretty good bet that one of our bike paths passes nearby.
You can take a bike ride to the Sanibel Lighthouse, or maybe to one of the many public beach access locations. Most restaurants and shops also have areas to safely leave your bike.

Not only can you walk or bike on the paths, you can sign up for a Segway lesson and tour! Through Billy's Bikes on Periwinkle Way, you can learn how to ride a Segway and tour the island, or rent one of their many different bike choices. Billys is just one of many places that offer bikes for rent.
We also have a Sanibel Island Bike Club for all levels of bikers. They plan different rides and events around the island as well as teaching safe biking and the rules of the road. The map at the top of this blog is from the Bike Club and you can find it online as a downloadable PDF Here or by just clicking on the map.
