Support Our New Program - Help EBC Stay GREEN!
Recently EBC signed up for the Amazon Associates Affiliate Advertising Program, to help raise funds for EBC. If you shop online at Amazon, which many of us do, we ask that you use the EBC/Amazon Link. Every time you purchase something on Amazon through this link, we receive a commission which goes directly into Everglades Bicycle Club. As a non-profit club all proceeds from this partnership will be returned to the cycling community through our events, community service and our club members!

Saturday May 25th—Our NEW 18-22 MPH Leader-Led rides out of City Hall!!
Thank you to Arpad Hevizi and Juan Alban for their dedication and perseverance in accomplishing our first pilots of the Leader-Led, Advanced Speed and Cycling Skills ride, out of City Hall on Saturdays! The rides will leave from City Hall @ 7:30 AM---same routine as other rides—be there early to sign waiver and hear the advanced tutorial. The ride will go to Deering Estate for a short break, then to Blackpoint (no stop on the way down) and then further south for an estimated 55 mile ride at speeds of 18-22 MPH. This ride is for experienced cyclists who can maintain 20+ MPH and have been riding in groups for at least 1 year. Advanced Paceline, Drafting, Strengthening and Skills will be emphasized. AND like all EBC Leader-Led rides---safety is our # 1 concern. There will be 2 ride leaders for each ride. Spread the word to all the teams!
EBC SUNDAY LEADER-LESS RIDE!
Most riders head north to Miami Beach and further north, some up to North Miami Beach and even to Hollywood. Some split at Key Biscayne. This is a leaderless ride, so no ride releases, no leaders, just show up and ride. Experienced cyclists welcome with a pace of 17+ MPH. Address is 5801 Augusta Street, Coral Gables FL, 33146. Park your cars parallel to US 1 in front of the school.
