2019 Escape to the Keys Bicycle Festival1487:30 AMMiami Homestead Speedway,FLLaurie
About This Activity

The 2019 Escape to the Keys Bicycle Festival is a 3 day, fun filled road cycling adventure for those that want to get away from the cold, dreary weather up north and join us for an exciting ride from Miami to Key West. We stop along the way to enjoy the sites/food and scenery of Florida in December with an overnight stay at the Hawks Cay Resort, and on day 2, in Key West, at our host hotels, The Gates or 24 North, where we can enjoy the debauchery of Key West on Saturday night. Bus transport is available on Sunday back to Miami at 2pm sharp. Approximate mileage is 148 miles (day one is 88) and cyclists must be able to ride an average of 15mph.
Event details and schedule

Day 1: Friday, December 6. We start at 7:30am at the Miami Homestead Speedway. For those cyclists who are staying at the Best Western, your luggage will be picked up at the hotel, so you can ride to the start (about 4 miles). If you are driving to the Speedway, there is secured parking overnight. The luggage truck will be parked at the Speedway, and will swing by the Best Western to pick up luggage before heading down to the Keys. There will be a meet/greet on Thursday night in the Best Western lobby to answer any questions for our out of town riders. Our first rest stop on Friday is to be determined, but our second rest stop will be at Robbies in Islamorada, MM77, bayside, where you can enjoy feeding the tarpon and seeing some Florida wildlife. Our last stop is at Hawks Cay, where we will stay overnight. Hawks Cay is located just 17 miles south of Robbies, on the ocean side. Hotel registration will be set up outside, so you can get signed into your room, and enjoy your lunch all at the same time. Dinner Friday night can be enjoyed, on your own, or with some new cycling buddies, at any of the restaurants that Hawks Cay has to offer.

Day 2: Saturday, Dec 7: Rise and shine, hop on those bikes and pedal, pedal, pedal, all the way to Key West. Enjoy a once in a lifetime experience of riding your bicycle over the 7 mile bridge! Yes, 7 miles on a bridge! Rest stop after the bridge. Final rest stop at mile marker 15, at Baby's coffee, where you can enjoy hot or cold beverages, before your final stop at mile marker 4, in the park at Stock Island. We will gather there together and be led by Key West's finest into downtown Key West, our very own bicycle parade! Dante's Raw Bar for lunch, (included in the registration price) cerveza, swimming (if you dare) and music, before we depart for our various Key West hotels for the night. Host hotels this year include The Gates (305-320-0930) and 24 North (305-320-0940). Participants are required to make your own reservations for hotel in Key West. Dine in Key West at any of the many places to choose from. Party down, and whatever happens in Key West, stays in Key West!

Day 3: Explore Key West on your own...by bike, by foot, or cab. The tour bus home will depart at 2pm sharp from the Southwinds hotel. Be prompt!
