Biking as a favorite Southwest Florida tourist attraction

Sunday's letters to the editor: Favorite Southwest Florida tourist attractions

Ken Gooderham, Fort Myers:

Sunshine, fair winds and a plethora of paths give bicycling a strong tourist tie for Southwest Florida. It’s not the first reason people come here, but it’s a good reason to bring them back since they can more easily incorporate biking into their vacation living, they can add it to their list of activities on their leisure list (along with all the other participatory sports this area has to offer) that gives the whole family something funs to do – and, most of all, it gets them out of their cars and into the natural world that is ultimately Southwest Florida’s most seductive lure.

Our biking infrastructure is a vacation amenity that’s a draw to many visitors and an asset for all … even those of us who live here.
