Pool to Pier

This used to be our Pier to Pier ride, but with the demise of The Pier, it needed a new name.

The ride is from the North Shore Park down to the fishing pier on the old Sunshine Skyway Bridge.  Click here for the Route. <<< Link to RidewithGPS.com

Helmets are required.

Please be ready to roll out at the start time, so arrive early to prepare your bike.

Please RSVP before the day of the event so we'll know how many are coming!

Bring water, bring a snack, a few bucks if you want to ride out on the fishing pier (yes they charge bikes the same as a car) andbring a friend - these rides are more fun with a group!

    Drew, sorry we missed you somehow. I parked at the north end of the parking lot north of the pool (exactly where the marker on your map shows) and was there 30 min. early. Shelia and I wondered around till about 10 after then went for our own ride. There were lots of bikers riding around, but we were looking for a group. Will try again.

      Oh well - it happens. Martin was in a Tour de Cure jersey and red shorts and i was in a Sun jersey with red & black shorts. I'll have to remember to give much more specific in the spot to meet at. You left out before we did I think we waited until about 10:15, and did about the same route.

    John and i were there but must not have parked where you did. We were sitting on a bench by the water and saw two fellas biking through, we thought that may have been you. We rode to maximo park and up to the blocked trail. We very much looked forward to the ride and will try again.

    I'm glad I signed up at the last moment, otherwise you would have had no one to join you on this ride, Drew. The rest of you missed a good ride on a beautiful day.

    Earlier in the week the trial to the skyway was still roped off for construction so you may not be able to go out there. An option would be to cut over to the bay way and just past 34th behind the CVS is the skyway trail. Good ride past clam bayou

    May have to shorten this route somewhat - I've been told that the trail out to the skyway is closed. Worst case we'll use Maximo park as a turn around point.
