We start at Cooley's Landing Marina, do a circular ride around Fort Lauderdale, including Sailboat Bend, Riverside Park, Rio Vista, Las Olas, The Beach, Coral Ridge, Vic Park, etc... The ride will end at TAP 42 for Monday Night Prohibition burgers.
We'll ride at a pace of approximately 17-21+ mph and up with the goal to increase our speed and strength.... ...The route is about 15 miles, with several sprint points during the ride... total riding time 1.5 hours+... the ride itself, not counting the camaraderie at Tap 42 immediately following, should end around 9:40, for those of you who have somewhere else to go to...
We meet at 8:00, ride off at 8:15, if you expect to arrive later, we can be intercepted easily. MNPR group should arrive at Las olas/A1A between 8:50/55 , 20 minutes later the group departs 711 on Bayview/ Sunrise
Please note there are 6 designated stops on this ride:
1. Davie/ SW 9th avenue
2. Federal/ SE 15th street
3. A1A/ Las Olas (as soon as all are gathered we have 20 minutes to LEAVE 711)
4. Bayview 711
5. Federal/ NE 4th street
6. Tap 42
The stops are so that we can regroup from each sprint point.
This ride is intended to be increasingly faster each week,
THERE IS NO TOO FAST
Learn the route and the stops, be faster, stronger and lead it.
Please call out hazards. Eliminate stress, keep yourself in check, let everyone learn to ride their own ride. Ride at your own risk and respect others using the streets.
(please do not cork on this ride, we are not Critical Mass)
An alternate B Route will be led by Christian and leaves at 8:30 P.M. This will be slightly shorter at a more comfortable pace. Please maintain the pace, stay in one lane, ride safe. Anyone that feels they'd like to ride faster than the lead should consider arriving at 8:15 to depart with the A group.
All types of bikes and riders are welcome, you'll know if it's for you if you try it... As always please be equipped for safety (lights are the law) and prepared for flats and other possibilities.
