Biking from Casperson across to Manasota Key?

Is this possible? By looking at the map it looks like there is a road most of the way (Manasota Key Rd.) from Manasota to Casperson, is it a long distance to get to that road from Casperson? Is it walkable with a bike for that portion? Any help would be appreciated.

From what I can see, there is a break in road (and even paths) along the key/beach there, so that you can only cross by foot for a portion. From the sat map I can see the beach is continuous. So if hard enough? Not sure how easy it is to the beach from the last house on the road.

Street wise is doable via google maps, at 9 miles from the last beach on manasota to casperson's. If starting further south in MK, do your research re distance.
