About This Event

The Vibe: cycling, nature, local kitsch Everglades City is a wild-west cowboy town in the swamp — renegade, independent, adventurous – with great seafood and stories to tell. Lots of other stuff to do (on your own) before/after the bicycle ride: – kayak, boardwalks, fishing, hiking, airboats, museums, and boat tours.

The Smooth Ride: not a single hill, but a great stretch of pavement in the wilds of the everglades, with few stop signs and no chasing dogs. 15 or 62 miles – with options to shorten or lengthen your ride

The Bumpy Ride: half of route is on dirt road in boondocks of fakahatchee swamp, with a local guide. skinny tires NOT recommended. 27 miles – with options to shorten or lengthen your ride
