A Ride through true 'Old Florida' & Bonita Beach up to Lovers Key.

Bonita Springs, FL 

The reason why Bonita Springs is my favorite place to ride is because it is a charming Florida town, very much true to its character in Old Florida. I get to see many other locals on their bikes commuting to work, into their favorite taco places, and to English classes at the Bonita Springs Literacy Center, mostly newly arrived families from Latin America. 

By starting at Town Hall and the artists cottages you crossover a small river and make your way down Pennsylvania Avenue to connect with Bonita Beach Road. From there hang a right towards the beach and this will take you all the way to Lovers Key. Along the way you will pass by some of the most beautiful beaches in America, and crossover great rivers and inlets from the Gulf. You'll continue on a two lane road with a respectful bike culture, and many bike lanes along the way to Ft Myers beach...It is a total of a 17 mile ride there, 34 round trip!
