March is Florida Bicycle Month!

The Florida Bicycle Association​ wisely chose March as Florida Bicycle Month because, well, the weather's perfect!

Biking is a great way to enjoy our fabulous Florida sunshine and get a little exercise with the whole family. More than a dozen Broward County Parks​ have paths perfect for recreational biking, two (Markham Park & Target Range, and Quiet Waters Park​) have mountain bike trails, and one has a velodrome (Brian Piccolo Sports Park & Velodrome​)! In addition, Central Broward Park & Broward County Stadium offers handcycles available for free on a first-come, first served basis,​ and the ​Special Populations Section​ has a Tandem Bike Program that teams up sighted volunteers to captain as cyclists who are blind or visually impaired provide additional pedal power.​

Broward County Parks and Recreation celebrates Florida Bicycle Month with a variety of events from Bike Rodeos to Scavenger Hunts, from Slow Rolls to Team Races, from free lessons to Kid's Bike Fest!​

Florida Bicycle Month sponsors include Broward County Parks and Recreation, BikeBox​, Broward BCycle​, Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization​, Florida Department of Transportation​, Flipany​, Florida Velodrome Association, Miami Masters/Rosewood Series​, and SafeKids Broward County.​​​
