How is biking around Lake LBJ?

Been biking in Fort Myers for 13 years on our Just Two Bikes (side-by-side) recumbent. We watched way too many Gator Boys & Swamp Wars episodes this summer at our MN lake cabin... wife wants to go where there are no gators, big snakes or lizards, but still be on the water. Many years ago we spent a winter on Lake Travis and drove over to Marble Falls and Horseshoe Bay for a brief tour but don't remember much.

We like to bike 10-20 miles every day, weather permitting. My question is, how hilly are the trails and roads around Lake LBJ and adjacent to the lake? We plan to buy a home or condo on the lake if the biking is suitable for "senior leisure" riders like us. Thanks for your input.

Bo...

I've not biked there. But I know the area. Might be pretty hilly by your standards; that area commonly has short but quite steep hills. The highways tend to be 2 lanes with no or narrow shoulder. County roads might be 1.5 lane blacktop, or gravel.

There are many developed neighborhoods on both shores, I'd expect reasonably quiet roads inside those.
