Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach Cycle Route

Sea & Sun with Nadezhda

The island of Palm Beach is home to legendary resorts, exquisite mansions and historic landmarks, including Henry Flagler’s former residence, now the Flagler Museum.

Lined with stately palm trees, the shopping nirvana of Worth Avenue is known worldwide. Palm Beach Island’s Gilded Age architecture will captivate, as will the chic restaurants and a winter highlight, the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival. Cycling here affords views along the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway and Lake Worth Lagoon. So… what are waiting for 😉

This is a long ride (there and back), but one that takes in epic sea views all the way and will give you a metric hiundred ride. You can easiy extend it if you like, giving a full 100 miles.

Route

This route begins at Fort Lauderdale, at the ‘Apple The Galleria’ on E. Sunrise Blvd. Head to the beach road,turn left and keep on cycing. Follow Highway A1A north, eventually gaining the lagoon views and yachts to your left, and the ocean to your right.

You’ll cycle through scenic Boca Raton and pass by the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. South Palm Beach is soon reached and the epic scenery surrounds you. West Palm Beach and the Flagler Memorial Bridge is the halt and rest point, where there’s ample refreshment opportunities nearby, before you simply reverse the route.

Take lots of fluids and some snacks with you. And, we’d recommend having a flashing rear light fixed to your bike. Take some tubes and tools too, in case you get an unforeseen mechanical.

Off you go and enjoy some coastal sunshine then 🙂
