Running – The island is 7 miles long. We see runners on the hard pack of the beach all the time or along Gulf Drive every day, sometimes on the sidewalks, often along the side of the road (for lack of sidewalks). So, I suggest, step out the door, run Gulf Drive or head for the beach and run there… or both, yes! How about run south to Longboat Key, which is about 5 miles/one way or North to Bean Point which is approximately 6 miles/one way. There are lots of quiet side streets to run from Bradenton Beach to the City of Anna Maria.

Last suggestion – Walk the beach, or swim in our heated pool. Both are right outside your door and easy ways to stay fit while you enjoy your vacation with Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals.

All locations are just a short free trolley ride from Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals – 601 Gulf Dr. N. – Ann Maria Island, Florida 34217

CYCLING ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND

Cycling is encouraged over driving, with friendly paths and bike rentals available. You don’t have to travel with a bicycle to enjoy cycling on Anna Maria Island. Enjoy the Island wildlife as you are greeted by squirrels or native Blue Heron. If you are lucky, you may spot dolphins frolicking in the waves.

Many shops provide bike rentals for guests to just get around or to explore the island. Enjoy the day/week/month with a bike ride. Put your car keys away and enjoy your bicycle ride to the beach.

Any of these companies will be happy to help with your Bike Rental.

Bike Paths- In addition to riding on roadways and through neighbourhoods the cities of Anna Maria Island have several designated paths. Paved bike friendly paths make it easy to ride from one end of this 7 mile long Island to the other.  Bicycles are not permitted on the beaches as the powdery sand make cruising a little difficult.

The city of Bradenton Beach has five miles of bike paths and bike lanes along Gulf Drive, connecting to more than 50 miles of similar lanes across the island, as well as more on Longboat Key.

From the condo heading south on Gulf Drive passing Cortez Beach you will then access the Coquina Beach Path which leads to beautiful Coquina Beach. Continuing south into Longboat Key will take you to St. Armand’s Circle and beyond. On the Longboat side, there is a 10 mph speed limit and cyclists are required to have a bell to ring for pedestrians.

Riding East over the Cortez or Manatee bridges provides a pleasant trail to take in the sights, sounds and smells of the Intracoastal Waterway. Travelling East on Cortez Bridge you will pass the quaint Village of Cortez and if you’re feeling adventuresome continue on into the City of Bradenton. If you travel East over the Manatee bridge there is a bike path through Robinson Preserve which offers great nature viewing opportunities along with safe flat trails.
