The bicycle path runs the length of Ixtapa, from the Palma Real Campo de Golf to Marina Ixtapa, and from the intersection of Ixtapa Boulevard with Paseo de las Garzas to Playa Linda via the Aztlán Parque Ecológico (behind the big hill on the north side of Ixtapa). See the Google Map (you have to zoom all the way in he make out the bike path).

I don't know the distance, but if you have Google Earth you can use the ruler tool to calculate it.

In Zihuatanejo Bi-Zihuanas rents bikes. They are listed on my Activities page. I'm sure there are bike rentals in Ixtapa as well.

From Marina in Ixtapa to Playa Linda is about 5 miles and is a great ride with a decent bike.Mine broke down and I had to bus it back to Ixtapa.(which I now realize is another easy way to do it.)

It is 9 km from the Marina to Playa Linda on the bike path. More than a mile goes through the swamp.
