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.
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.
