Hi I am Joyce and I am here the newbie in this group! :) I am from Holland so basically I was born on a bike and I love cycling everywhere in the world. Next to biking, I love meeting new, active people. So who is up for a nice bike ride through Oleta State River Park in North Miami Beach?! Oleta River State Park, Florida’s largest urban park, is located on Biscayne Bay in the busy Miami metropolitan area. Although it offers a variety of recreational opportunities, the park is best known for miles of off-road bicycling trails, ranging from novice trails to challenging trails for experienced bicyclists. It currently has over 10 miles of challenging, intermediate mountain bike trails. For the beginner, there are over 4 miles of novice trails and 3 miles of paved trail. You can either bring your own bike or rent one. If you rent, make sure you make a reservation, call:[masked]. Mention that you are from the group of "March 1". If we reserve 10 or more, a discount of 10% applies. We meet at 12.30 at the Outdoor Center in the Park (see location) and start cycling 13.00. Please make sure you bring: - Athletic Cool Clothing - Water - Sunscreen - Sunglasses or protective eyewear - Bug Spray (Also available for purchase on location) There is an entrance fee to the park; take into consideration $ 4 per person just to be sure.
