One of the many things residents enjoy about living at The Colony Golf & Bay Club is that the vehicle of choice isn’t a car – it’s a bike. Cycling is a great way to get around the community whether it’s to stay healthy or visit neighbors at one of the high-rise or single-family enclaves. But there are some great road or trail bike routes throughout Naples and Bonita Springs. Most of the rides provide scenic tours of some of the most picturesque communities in the area. There’s something for everyone, whether you are a casual bicyclist or a cycling enthusiast.
