MIA TO FTL : DST Appreciation Ride (75 miles)
Sunday, March 14th 1pm
Meet @ Government Center
In appreciation of Daylight Saving Time we'll be riding from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale, 75 miles round trip. The extra hour of daylight is great for cyclists and pedestrians alike, let's take advantage of it.
Similar to the Valentine's Day Ride to Hollywood, average speed will be 20-22mph. This is a longer ride so keep yourself hydrated and bring an extra tube/patch kit/tools. We'll most likely split into two groups, keep in mind this is not a ride for novice riders. We'll be riding through busy streets at peak traffic hours.
Our destination in Ft. Lauderdale will be the Antique and Custom Bicycle Show at Coral Ridge Mall. We'll check out the bike show, grab a snack and then head back to Miami. The ride will take an estimated 6 hours (rest time included), we should be back in Downtown Miami before dusk.
Here is a link to the route.
Don't forget to set those clocks forward at 2am Sunday, remember you will lose sleep Saturday night!
