Fort Meyers Beach Biking

We loved being at Fort Meyers Beach Beach. Good friends Tom and Cathy were here as well as Bonar  and Christa.  We all got together for a bike ride on Friday morning to the Lakes Park produce market.
One thing about the Fort Meyers area - there are a lot of bike trails.  Like a whole lot.  You can go almost anywhere on a bike.
It was about 4 miles to the market and we picked up some vegetables and a loaf of bread.  I rode about a mile down the road on the way back home, when Cathy noticed I no longer had the bread.  Sure enough, after I back tracked, I found it harmlessly waiting for me beside the path, untouched.  A little bungie cord tie down and we were on our way.

Another day, we went for a ride out to see the manatee and dolphins.  It was about 5 miles both ways on a wide bike path.
The condo area we rode to has access to the Caloosahatchee River.  We could see the manatee and later on we saw four dolphin out by the tiki hut bench.
Fort Meyers Beach is a great place to bike and enjoy some great weather.

That's all for now- Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles.  Until next time...


  1. Love your blog and follow it daily. One very minor correction. Fort Meyers beach is spelled: MYERS. Lots of folks misspell it so don't feel bad.

    Glad you are enjoying my old "home" area. Catch the Edison/Ford museum in Ft. Myers if you can it is a great way to spend a morning.

  2. I love going to the fresh markets. Sounds like you are getting lots of exercise and fresh veggies too...
    We have never been to Fort Myers, but want to go.
    Until next safe and enjoy!

  3. Looks like a great area for biking. We love to seek out farmer's markets when available in an area as well.
    Safe Travels!

  4. I miss not having my bike. We will have to try to fix that this summer. Love watching the manatees.

  5. We plan on spending some time in Florida...just not sure when. We have som many places to go...
