For Immediate Release:
Cape Coral, FL. (January 9, 2015) The City of Cape Coral in partnership with Cape Coral Bike-Ped, a volunteer organization, has completed the 90-miles of 7-interconnectd bike routes in Cape Coral, Florida!  The project, completed December 2014, is on time and within budget with all design and installation work completed, as promised , by the volunteers and the City of Cape Coral’s Public Works Department.  To-date Public Works has put in 1497 Bike Route Signs.  A few additional signs will be put in as part of the Utility Expansion Project for areas 6/7, but all other signage is in.  Special thanks to Mike Swanson, a Bike-Ped and Caloosa Rider volunteer who worked tirelessly on this project.

See the City of Cape Coral’s new Bicycling website at  It includes interactive bike route maps and information on bicycling in Cape Coral.   

In addition, 13 sponsored map kiosks will be placed in parks along the routes within the month.  These sponsored kiosk contain the map of the 7-interconnected routes.  Cyclist will be able to scan the QR box on the map to take them to the City’s website and to each of the 7-interactive, downloadable “Ride with GPS” route maps.  If interested, there are 4 sponsored kiosks remaining at $300 each.  Contact Carolyn Conant at for information on sponsorships.
