There's a pretty decent bike lane on both sides of the beach highway. If you head east into Florida the lanes end at the state line, if you head west you will eventually hit Fort Morgan and Mobile Bay. It's a pretty good east-west ride along the beach as was said, about 40 miles one way total. Other than the beach highway there aren't a whole lot of bike lanes, but the area is pretty bike friendly. If you're coming in the next few weeks expect lesser vehicle traffic and pretty decent winds on the beach. Road is the way to go. You can also try to catch a group ride in Pensacola, FL if you want. It's about an hour drive but there is an active club, the west florida wheelmen, google can give you their web site.
Good Luck and have good trip - its a beautiful area. btw - unless it was a pun it's GULF not Golf Shores.
