Biking Around

Once you have your bike, there’s no shortage of places to visit. Anna Maria Island has bike paths throughout the city that make it easy to get around. Bradenton Beach boasts five miles of bike paths and bike lanes on Gulf Drive, which connects to more than 50 miles of other biking options across the island.

If you’re sightseeing and don’t want to cycle all the way, bikes can be mounted on the front of the island’s free trolley and easily transported to different areas.

Of course, you always want to be safe. Obey traffic laws and signs and always use proper hand signals, especially on the roads. Be aware that drivers facing the sun may not be able to see you and stick on the right side of the road.
