Florida is not all hustle and bustle all the time with fast cars hooting and bullying people out of the road. In fact, there are some fantastic cycling places with a lot of calm, safety and well-defined cycling paths. There are so many things to see in Florida from the top of your bike. Are you ready? Here are some of the best cycling places in Florida
7 of the Best Places in Florida for Cycling
1. Sanibel Island
There are more than 22 miles of biking trails in Sanibel Island, but you can add much more on top of that by cycling through the neighborhoods on the residential streets. Cycling is not the only thing that will take you to Sanibel Island because there are so many things to see.
For instance, you can go to the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and see the hundreds of different species of birds that have made the vast 6400-acre forest their home. You will pay a small fee to cycle in Sanibel Island, and then you can gun for the most extended bike trail in the western end of the island!
2. Port St. Joe
If Port St. Joe does not have some of the best bile trails this side of Florida, well, I don’t know what to say about that. Go on and explore, you won’t be disappointed. There are well-defined bike paths and trails and as you ride you will enjoy the tranquility, the birds’ songs and the beautiful views that you will get of the Bay, the lakes, and the parks.
Whatever you do, you have to must visit the St Joseph Peninsula State Park from where you can access the excellent riding route along some of the best beaches in Florida.
3. Daytona Beach
Well, you may wonder just what fun there is to ride a bicycle through a beach, but the good thing with Daytona Beach is that the sand is very good for biking.
There are many scenic rides along Daytona Beach, one of them being The Loop. With cycling becoming the ever more popular form of mobility, there are many bike rentals in Daytona Beach.
4. Hollywood Beach
The Broadwalk has been officially recognized as one of the best public spaces and what’s more, you can now ride your bicycle in this space. This is a place for people that love cycling because there is no traffic at all.
With the ocean in the vicinity, you can pop in for a swim when it feels too hot. Be ready to be entertained by lively beats of reggae and classic rock music.
5. Cedar Key
Cedar Key is the place where you want to be if you would love to laze on an idyllic island without any disturbance.
Make sure to hire a bike and take a tour of the island, and it is not big, just three miles in length and two miles in width.
Have some food in the good old cafes on this island and take in the sun and the wind on the idyllic gulf shores.
Cycling in Seaside is so fantastic, and the feeling that you are doing something beautiful for Mother Nature makes it even more exceptional.
You will love the old brick roads… maybe they will remind you of the ancient cobbled streets of Rome, who knows.
This is a small town located bang on the road; the population is low, there is no traffic to worry about and so the only thing you should be doing is riding your bicycle for as long as you wish.
7. Key West
Explore Key West from one end to another on a bicycle, and the cobblestoned streets will show you just how much history is available in the Key West. Take it easy as you take in the tranquility, peace of mind and the many things to see.
If you are daring enough, you can even take the route between the Key Largo and the Key West. It offers incredible amounts of fun. When I went there with my friends, I made sure to pick my bike from this ladies bikes collection. And you too, can go there and enjoy your time in Key West, Florida.
Have fun exploring Florida by cycling!
