ey Biscayners can work off some of those holiday calories this weekend during a community bike ride sponsored by Bike Key Biscayne.
The local cycling group is organizing a family-oriented ride Saturday, December 7, starting at 10 a.m. at the gazebo on the north side of the Village Green.
According to organizers, “This ride will be different from our family-oriented rides during the spring of this year. All those rides went directly into Crandon Park. This time, with the help and cooperation of the Key Biscayne Police Department, the ride will do a shorter loop around Village streets and then, for a longer loop, will continue into Bill Baggs State Park, where we’ll ride around the beautiful bike path from bay to ocean.”
The short loop is about 5 miles; the longer ride is about 8 miles.
At the end of the ride, Bike Key Biscayne will serve refreshments at the gazebo.
The ride is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome, and helmets are required.
Bike Key Biscayne thanks Mayor Frank Caplan, Village Manager John Gilbert and Police Chief Charles Press for their support.
