Ft. Myers Airport to Sanibel Island

I am meeting up with some people this december for vacation on Sanibel Island and had a question about cycling.

I am going to fly into Ft. Myers, and was thinking about shipping my bike down and riding from the Ft. Myers Airport to Sanibel island. Can anyone who lives in that area tell me what that ride might be like?

In particular I am curious about traffic/shoulders/bike lanes along the route. The distance obviously won't be an issue, but I want to make sure there are routes I could take without being on highways or something like that.

Can anyone give me some insight on the safety of this ride?

Thanks for the help!

Route 1 : Tree line to Daniels to Summerlin to McGregor on to Sanibel....You might have to use some side walks. There's a bike bath on Summerlin..

Scenic Route: Head south on Tree line/Ben Hill Griffin to Corkscrew to Livingston/south to Bonita Beach Blvd-Estero to San Carlos to Summerlin to McGregor to Sanibel..

I can ride up and meet you if you come in Sunday am.. Glenn in Naples

Thanks for the advice! If it is cool, I might get in touch with you closer to when I get down there. I am not actually going down until December, I am just trying to plan what airline to take (if I take the bike, I don't want one that charges $175 to check a bike)
