    New cyclist south florida

    Hey everyone,

    Looking for some roads that are a little more bike friendly (bike lanes)

    Davie sunrise plantation area, willing to drive out a little if need be to get there.

    Wife is a little scared of traffic and we would like to find something close by if possible

    Welcome to Bike Forums. Maybe the following thread will help you.

    Dear Bujajua:


    I live in South Florida too!. Try the parks:

    Markham
    Quiet Waters
    Tradewinds
    Hollywood Boardwalk aka 2 miles
    Everglades =mosquitoes are an issue

    I highly recommend: Things to do in Florida: Florida Rambler


    Harder much harder in Miami. Miami is for the most part congested and somewhat dirty. I like the city but it is rather dangerous/scary ---not for the reasons you might think.
    For me the danger =directly related to the DARK STREETS. In the more "urban" you know what that is a code word for---the streets are POORLY lit VERY DARK. I love riding at night LOVE it but....
    good grief...the lighting sucks in various parts of Miami.

    Others may disagree...
    Read the entire thread...might help. Different spokes for different folks...stop being so blasted superficially sanctimonious. You dont know everything and are not perfect.

    There are lot of bike trails(multi-use paths)out in Davie(see link)including one that follows Griffin Rd (just to the north)that I think is called the orange trail.Also roadies like riding out in Westin on S Post Rd and some of the others.Actually,a lot of the major roads out that way University/Oakland Park/Griffin etc have bike lanes and I have ridden them many times but there is a lot of traffic on these which your wife probably wouldn't like as much.
