• The SWFL Critical Mass NE Lee Ride

    Winn Dixie parking lot

    Come and join us for a casual SLOW RIDE through the mostly waterfront neighborhoods within the Ft. Myers Shores community. We will be meeting up in the Winn Dixie parking lot at on Palm beach Blvd about 5 miles east of I-75 interchange. Meetup at 7:00 pm and ROLL at 7:30 pm. We will be parking in outer edge of lot so as not to interfere with shoppers parking. This is yet another carefully ridden ride from the ever growing, fun loving riders of SWFL Critical Mass. The ride rolling speed is just 8 to 10 mph, it is not a race, it is a fun social ride. Expect anywhere from 25 to 50 on each ride. There will be a stop, around 5 mile marker, at Dairy Queen for quick restroom break if needed by riders. Bring your bikes, lights and good spirit. NE-Lee here we come! Here are the SWFL Critical Mass ride guidelines: 1. ALL riders ride at their own risk. You are responsible for your self, and just like any vehicle on the road, riding with care and caution. We announce the ride, come ride along, meet new friends, enjoy the sights and sounds. 2. Be nice, nice works! Being nice during one of those rare situation, keeps our positive wavelength strong -even if they don't receive your kindness in the moment. If they escalate anger, kindly ride away. 3. Lights are a must on night time group rides. You need to be seen by cars and the riders surrounding you. Put head tail lights in NON flash mode. 4. Helmets. Protect your brain and your pretty face! There are a lot of us riding, though we are careful, a bike to bike fall can easily cause injury. 5. Ride speed is 8-10 mph. If you're a slow rider, it is easier if you keep toward the front of the group. 6. Do not overtake the front of group ride leader. If you see others in front, it is because they have been instructed to do so. 7. When riding on roadways, keep to the right side of the road & allow space on the left for Corkers to pass. If you are told to move out of the way by a Corker, please do so, we're all in this for enjoyment and NO injuries. ***THE MAJORITY OF THIS RIDE WILL BE ON MULTI-USE PATHS. Riders should ride NO MORE THAN 2 ABREAST to ensure plenty of space to merge into single file in the event of approaching pedestrian/bike traffic.**** 8. Ride with consistency (no weaving) & communicate, if you're passing someone, just an easy, "Passing on your left" is all it takes. Shout out potholes, gator or other needed information to those behind you. 9. Keep the swarm of bikes tight (No more than a 3 bike spread). 10. When you ride with SWFL CM you leave your worries behind. You can pick them up later with a new perspective. more info at: http://www.SWFLcriticalmass.com
