Venice Travel Planner logo   Bicycling in Venice Florida
Venice is great for bicycling because it is mostly level ground, with little traffic on many of its wide streets. It has several excellent scenic bike paths as well.

If you like bicycling, you'll love doing it in Venice. It's so easy.

The twin bike paths in Venetian Waterway Park along both banks of the Intracoastal Waterway are perhaps Venice's most enjoyable riding route, but there's also the Legacy Trail between Sarasota and Venice.

Biking to the Beach

It's easy and pleasant to bike to Venice's beaches. Riding to Caspersen Beach, the farthest beach from the city center, you must take care on the narrow approach road because of shifting sand—the sand can cause loss of front-wheel control.
