Spent 3 hours exploring this trail and the surrounding area. What a great ride! There are many water views, great beaches to stop at and charming historic downtown Venice to dine and shop in.

This wonderful linear park provides bike and walking trail from one end of the island to the other. Part of what earned Venice the designation as a "Bicycle Friendly" city.

many to choose from. Use trip advisor, select Sarasota and then search bike rental. You can read the reviews and go to the individual web sites.
