    For those wanting the comaraderie of fellow cyclists who will enjoy the pace no matter what their level is, the annual two day ride around Lake Okeechobee will start Saturday November 19th in Clewiston. After an overnight stay in Okeechobee the return trip will begin Sunday Morning November 20th.


    You can sign up at the Bicyclery in West Palm Beach.:)

    It's too bad that the entire route isn't paved, I'd love to ride it one day.

    The MS Society used to have a MS50 up in that area during the winter. Went from Panama City Beach to Weston and back. I rode it both years that it happened but alas they cancelled it do to lack of participation.

    I'm in the Tampa Bay area, and have done some research on the trails and paths in the area. I would be happy to share my small amount of knowledge with whomever asks.

    Good thread - I'll subscribe!

    My MS150 Web Page: Donate or join our team (Microsoft).

    I ride a hybird and started riding seriously this year. I'm up to 40 miles without a problem, averaging 14-16 (14 if the lights are against me, 16 if most are green!). I seem to cruise right around 18-20 between lights.

    I'm 48 so you young roadies just watch out comming up behind me lol.

    Send me an e-mail and I can usually be ready by 7 AM and ride until noon.

    I'm fairly new to the Ft. Lauderdale area but I do know of a ride on Sunday MOrnings....


    starts at A1A and Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano. North anywhere from 20 - 40 miles depending on the day. Speed - 18 - 22.

    I know there are others because I've seen several groups around but I haven't researched where they start/end/etc.

    Another ride in Broward is at Brian Picolo Park. I think its on sheraton, I know its east of I-75 and North of Pines Blvd. Small track local races on Tuesday nights. Also there is a Velodrom for trackies. Near the park, local bike shop West of the park on North side of road regular ride starting there, don't know when but find shop find out info. Need Dade rides let me know.
