________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Discover water, wildlife and wonderful adventures when bicycling in Cape Coral! Florida’s second largest city by land mass offers a very special bicycling experience with more than 90 miles of interconnected bike routes bordering nature preserves, scenic canals, marinas, golf courses and the expansive Caloosahatchee River. Where else can you cycle along safe, easy-to-navigate routes to an ecological park where you can walk or kayak through a pristine mangrove forest… or to an eco park with a bird watching tower and a butterfly house… or to a marina with waterfront restaurants, ice cream/coffee shops and specialty boutiques?

Thanks to a public/private partnership and years of thoughtful planning, the city has created seven dedicated bike routes with distinctive signage, informational maps and kiosks highlighting the dozens of landmarks, facilities and recreational activities you can take in on your ride.


Cape Coral is located 140 miles south of Tampa, across San Carlos Bay from Sanibel Island and directly across the Caloosahatchee River from Fort Myers.


The 122-square-mile city is ideally suited for cyclists with:
