Biking in Weston Florida
Weston is a Biker’s Paradise!
In Weston all main streets have biking lanes and drivers in general are very aware of the numbers of bikers that share the streets with them. It is not unusual to run across a pack of bikers from the Weston Flyers or the South Broward Wheelers. Some of the routes include a portion on State RD 84 but even though is great because there are no stops the lanes used by bikers are very narrow and cars go very fast making it riskier.
“Weston has over 46 miles of dedicated bike lanes within our City, making Weston one of the premier areas in south Florida in which to bike. Bike lanes are a portion of the roadway, which has been designated by striping and pavement markings, for the use of bicycles. Bicyclists have the same rights as motorists and as such must obey all vehicular traffic laws. Weston has provided an interconnected system of safe bike lanes, multipurpose paths and shaded sidewalks for pedestrian travel throughout the City.”

If you are into Mountain Biking at Markham Park you will find 11 miles of mountain bike trails for novice, intermediate and advanced bikers. You have to register the first time at the Park’s Office and wear a helmet.
I started biking about one year ago and enjoy it very much. Some times I get bored of taking the same route. I found this wonderful collection of possible bike routes that gave me ideas for my next rides
