Weston & Coral Spring Cycling Route
By Nadezhda Pavlova
South Florida Cycling
Here’s another great South Florida cycling route, with some distance in it, making a good training ride too. The roads in South Florida are ideal for road cycling and triathlon training, and this is a great ride option all year long.
The route takes you close to the Everglades National Park, Alligator country and home to lots of amazing wildlife. It’s slightly inland from the coast, but close enough for you to add a beach ride into the day too. Coral Springs and Weston is a great area for cycling and this route weaves in and around both locations to give you a great 50 mile ride in the sunshine state.
Start: Holberg Road, Coral Springs
Stats 93 km 81 metres
Refreshments & Where to Stay
There’s lots of options nearby at the coast for accommodation and in terms of refreshments, this is the USA, so you’ll pass by a great selection of halts in Weston Town Centre. Click our Booking.com link for more accommodation options if you’re planning a visit.
Flat, sunny and scenic. Just take care with traffic on the busier roads.
