Sanibel earned the Silver Designation in 2014 by the League of American Bicyclists as a bike-friendly community. More recently Bike Friendly towns and was selected as the Trail of the Month in June 2015 by RailsToTrails.org. Sanibel's bike trails were the early vision of four local moms in 1972. They were hoping to create a safe way for school children to be able to pedal to and from school. Thanks to Mariel Goss, Sherry Vartdal, Starr Thomas and Grace Whitehead's extroidinary early efforts, Sanibel has one of the most widely acclaimed areas to enjoy a bike ride, jog, or dog walk.
No bike? No problem! Sanibel has several bike rentals including Billy's Bikes and Finnimores Bike Rentals.
