Fort Lauderdale Urban Ride

A quick, 20 mile romp around eastern Fort Lauderdale including Riverwalk, Las Olas, Bayview, Victoria Park, Rio Vista, 17th Street Bridge and Fort Lauderdale Beach. The route is primarily residential streets, but there are several areas where riding with traffic or in a bike lane is necessary.

This is a friendly and fun ride, but it is not a ride for folks who like to go slow, or those who aren't confident on their bikes. You'll be riding fast, at night, in an urban environment.

There are several extended sprints of riding 15+ mph and several short breaks for catching up. There are riders of various speeds in this group. Everyone wants to get a good workout, but we try not to leave anyone behind, try not to lose any newbies and try to fix all technical problems as a group.

We like to have an exciting, fast and safe ride and try to get back to the park by 9:00. EVERYONE RIDES AT THEIR OWN RISK.

Bike: Fat tires or skinny. Do what you wanna.

YOU MUST HAVE, AT LEAST, A BLINKY WHITE HEADLIGHT AND A BLINKY RED TAIL LIGHT TO AVOID BREAKING THE LAW. Helmet and lots of hydration, also a smart idea. Bring a spare tube and snack and extra stuff for your friends.

      Thanks Mirsa! I love my mountain bike, but it just can't keep up too well with the big kids! lol I really need to get a road bike. I've been shopping around for fixies and road bikes ever sense the FUN ride last Friday The bike world has some awesome people in it. Anytime I've fallen back on a ride someone always drops back and hangs with me, but I feel really bad slowing down other peoples pace. Do you know of any "slower" rides during the week?

      Learn the route. Fast riders will make you faster. We've had some pretty fast riders in the past on mountain bikes.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
