  • You'll see a bunch of Wet Dogs on bikes. Look for Carolina Mike and his two kids.
  • Hello Wet Dogs, 

    Join us as we bike the awesomely cool Robinson Preserve located in Manatee County.  The preserve is not far from the Sky Way bridge on your way to Bradenton and Anna Maria Island. A month ago we paddle from Palma Sole Bay to Popey's Cut into the preserve.  We were so impressed with the beauty of this area we vowed to come back and hike or bike it. 

    Robinson Preserve is located in northwester Bradenton, in the Palma Sola area.  This 487-acre preserve has undergone an incredible transformation from a disturbed farmland to coastal wetland habitat.  The preserve boasts red mangroves, Osprey, Manatee, numerous bridges and boardwalks that make this ride a most interesting one.  A special highlight is the five story observation tower where you get magnificent 360 degree views of the Sky Way Bridge, Rattle Snake Key, and Anna Maria Island. Beginners and up will enjoy this bike ride.  Approx. two hour ride.  Note: We may lengthen the trip some and leave from Parrot Cove Marina.

    Bike Rentals available here:

    When:  Saturday, Nov 2nd at 10 am.

    Bring: Bike, water, lunch, sunscreen, bike helmets,

    FYI, I live by Robinson Preserve and we would have been some very wet puppies if we biked this morning, the sky opened up at about 9:45 and is dumping a ton of rain. We would have definitely been some WET DOGS!!!

      I think the road surface is paved and crushed shells. I'll check into that.
