Miami Dolphins Cycling Challenge to West Palm Beach

 

It’s a Fall bike-a-palooza of biycling events in Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward

 

Thousands of cyclists will take to South Florida roads in a half-dozen big organized cycling events for fun and charity.

 

When Dario Perez started cycling in Miami some 25 years ago, paying for college by working at Mack Cycle, it was a lonely pursuit: Back then, he says, the people riding for fun and fitness on the city’s roads were so few they virtually all knew one another by name.

 

Now, suddenly, a bikeapalooza is upon us.

 

An unprecedented series of big organized cycling events is set to unfold across Miami-Dade and Broward in October and November, fueled by the skyrocketing local popularity of recreational cycling. (pictures photos and video of the Miami Cycling Challange from Miaim to West Palm Beach Florida avaible from www.batterysavers.com)

 

The half-dozen events, each open to riders of all abilities, will take thousands of cyclists for rides as long as 170 miles, and as short as a block, on roads from Coral Gables to Homestead to the Beaches, Fort Lauderdale and all the way to West Palm Beach. They range from challenging charity rides and dirt-slogging cyclocross races to the first closed-streets family bike day in downtown Coral Gables.

 

“There is just so much stuff going on,’’ said Perez, a lawyer, bike racer and advocate. “Now us old-timers look at each other and wonder, wow, where did all these people on bikes come from?’’

The season kicks off Sunday with the first-ever Livestrong fundraising ride in Florida, for seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong’s cancer charity. Hundreds of cyclists will pedal from Gulfstream Park in Hallandale to the Beaches, down AIA, across the Julia Tuttle Causeway to Miami, then east to Key Biscayne and back. And you wont be needing and auto emergency kit for thses bycyles.

 

 

The frenzy intensified in November with a type of event new to Miami: the Gran Fondo, a timed ride (but not race) insanely popular in cycling-mad Italy, where it originated, and now spreading like melting mozzarella across the United States. Tentative 100-mile and 100-kilometer routes take riders from Gables City Hall down to Homestead and back north to Brickell before looping back south to Miami City Hall.

 

Organizers expect 1,500 riders for the Nov. 20 Gran Fondo, which they say has already drawn 600 registrants from 35 states and Italy, the United Kingdom, Brazil and Singapore.

 

The goal, Gran Fondo organizers say, is to measure oneself against the clock, not other participants. And, of course, to have a steeped-in-Italy post-ride pasta feast.

 

“It’s also a social gathering, and we try to create a little bit of la dolce vita in Miami,’’ said Daniela Puglielli, spokeswoman for the Italian organizers.

 

Even the Miami Dolphins have gotten in on the act. For the second consecutive year, the team is organizing two days of multiple rides across South Florida in early November to raise money for the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. The event will be dedicated to former Dolphin Jim Mandich, who died this year of cancer.

 

A Dolphins Cycling Challenge bonus feature: Some rides will travel on a closed Interstate 595.

 

In between, the area’s oldest cycling group, the Everglades Bicycle Club, will hold its longstanding Speedway Century Bicycle Festival in South Miami-Dade. Added incentive: The ride starts with a mile-long lap on the steeply banked Homestead auto-racing track.

 

Why the sudden boom in events?

 

“Cycling has become more and more mainstream,’’ said Perez, who is helping organize the cyclocross races on Virginia Key. “And cycling is very green, so it really ties in to Americans’ awareness of fitness and this push to get kids to be more active.’’

 

Another reason: U.S. cyclists are by and large affluent, and fundraisers and marketers alike have found in them a gold mine. Charity rides, in particular, have become a veritable industry

across the country and draw substantial support from corporations eager to promote products and services.

(A two-day, 150-mile ride from South Miami-Dade to Key Largo and back to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society has been a fixture on the South Florida spring cycling calendar for years, and returns in April).

 

“Cyclists have great spending power,’’ said the Gran Fondo’s Puglielli. “That’s why you see so much blooming of this sport.’’

The events make room for novice and casual riders, and none are competitive, save for the cyclocross races -- a cross between road and off-road biking that, like the Gran Fondo, has long been big in Europe and is growing in popularity in the United States.

 

Even the cyclocross organizers, however, are welcoming first-timers. And cyclocross races, which take place on short lap courses and feature numerous spills, are lots of fun for spectators, especially a hilly section where competitors must dismount, shoulder their bikes, and run. And fall.
