Brake the winter blues and travel south for an enjoyable Florida bike tour on flat and protected rail trails on Florida’s Suncoast. Relax and take in the scenic riding on the barrier islands and beaches along the serene waters of Florida’s gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. We will ride on these carefully designed cycling routes in Pinellas and Sarasota counties then add in a kayak tour for a change of pace.
You stay ALL six nights right on the beach, allowing for morning and evening strolls relishing the warm weather when the rest of the country is shivering. Each day features bike riding on rail trails or in bike lanes on quiet roads. Plus, dine at some of the finer restaurants on Clearwater Beach and in Sarasota along St. Armand’s Circle.
You spend the first three days in Clearwater Beach exploring the Pinellas Bike Trail, Fort De Soto Park and Clearwater beaches. A short shuttle on Wednesday takes you to Sarasota County, where you enjoy the Legacy rail trail to Venice and see their “Black Beach”. Spend time on this beach digging for shark teeth or fishing on the pier. While in Sarasota, we will also jump into a kayak and tour the mangroves, our goal is to see the manatees and dolphins swimming in this quiet bay. Take a walk outside our hotel on Lido Beach with their white endless sands.
Your fully-guided bike tour includes your 6 nights on the Beach, all transportation during the 7 days, luggage shuttle, breakfast and lunch provided, dinner reservations at local restaurants (guests to pay), beautiful bike jersey, kayak tour, beverages at the end of the riding day and transportation back to the airport on final day.
