Hollywood Urban Ride (Thursday evening)

Let's meet in the Winn-Dixie parking lot on the south side of Dania Beach Blvd, east of US1 (from 95, take Griffin east, turn right on US1 and left on Dania Beach blvd. Winn-Dixie is 1/16 mile on your right), at 6:45 to allow for equipment checks (check your tires before we start, please!). We leave promptly at 7p.m. Please do NOT park near the ATM's at the bank. Keep those parking spaces available for bank patrons.

please email me if you have any questions.

Our ride is 19 miles long at a brisk pace (15-18 mph on avg.) riding through neighborhoods, parks, boardwalks, and beach roads between Dania Beach and Hallandale Beach Blvds to north and south, US 1 and the beach to the west and east. You will get a good workout-expect to push yourself! But there are plenty of opportunities to catch your breath along the way (traffic lights). We WILL stop for red lights! The ride takes about 2 hours, including two brief rest stops with bath rooms. While you ride at your own risk, a helmet is a must, a white headlamp and back red blinky light are mandatory! (for your safety, because we care, and it's the law!). It is also against the law to ride wearing headphones. Please keep to the right at all times and never ride more than two abreast. Please make sure your bike, tires and lights are in working order before we start. This is a no drop ride, but if you fall behind, make sure you let someone know especially if you are not familiar with the route. 

Please be courteous to drivers, pedestrians, joggers, roller-bladers, and other riders. This is a weekly ride so would like to BUILD relationships with the locals, not burn our bridges. smile Please watch you speed while we are on the Hollywood Broadwalk!

An approximation of the route is available here:  (thanks to Carl)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
