We ride from Ernest Coe Visitor Center to Flamingo Visitor Center, have an omelette burrito brunch and return back, 76 miles round trip.
If you’ve never done this ride, you’re in a for a treat. Ride your bike down a silky smooth road in the middle of the Everglades, no traffic, many miles away from civilization. It’s like sailing on an ocean of grass, as far as the eye can see. It’s a beautiful experience. Join us!
Bring enough food and water for 40 miles, as there are no refueling/refilling stops during each 38-mile leg. Brunch at Flamingo. Pedals up at 7:00am from the Ernest Coe parking lot. Park Entrance Fee is $15, family annual pass is $55.
