WINK News story features bike tourism with local focus

Great WINK story about bike tourism...starting with Florida Coast to Coast trail under consideration by State Legislature, and then shifts to Lee County, featuring VCB's Simone Behr and Dan Moser.  WINK highlights the significant of Sanibel's LAB designation as a "Bicycle Friendly Community"--because they promote biking for health, transportation and recreation.  Thanks to Simone for highlighting not just Sanibel bike paths, but also the Cape Coral new biking route, the Tour de Parks route and University Loop.  The clips shows VCB desk handing out the MPO countywide bicycle maps to tourists.  Dan (in his BWL jersey) highlights the importance of filling the gaps in our biking network so that its connected and becomes major draw for visitors.

Be sure to watch the clip:
