Riding Your Bike on Lido Key

Lido Key and the surrounding communities are full of amazing spots for you to cycle, and Lido Key Beach is the perfect place to start. You’ll have a quiet place to enjoy the waves roll in as you stroll past your fellow beachgoers. Siesta Key is another bike-friendly location, where you can bike right up to the island’s many shops and restaurants. Longboat Key has several particularly nice paths for those who want a breathtaking view during their ride.

Nearby Bike Trails

Getting around the area is easy on a bike, especially when you follow any convenient bike trails. For instance, a 9.5-mile Longboat Key bike trail takes you on a stunning journey with an unbelievable view of the Gulf of Mexico. You can even take this trail over the bridge and onto Anna Maria Island, where you might see manatees or even dolphins! 

One of the most well-known Sarasota bike trails is the Legacy Trail that opened in 2008. The trail covers more than 12 miles and begins just south of Sarasota, taking cyclists down into Venice. While you ride, you’ll come to 15 rest stops. Trailheads are located at several points throughout the journey, such as at Potter Park in Sarasota, Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey, and the Venice Train Depot.
