The Best Bike Trails of Sanibel Island, Florida!

Sanibel Island, Florida

Florida is a major destination for me as well as many of you!  We love the beautiful weather, beaches, views and attractions.  Next time you are traveling to South Florida, bring your bikes and head over to Sanibel Island!  Sanibel Island only has a population of about 6000 people.  The entire city is incorporated, and because of easy causeway access, it has become one of the more popular tourist destinations in the area!  Between the wildlife refuges, beaches, and bike trails, there is a lot to see.  Here are just a few of the top bike trails that you should consider if you want to enjoy all that Florida has to offer!
