Casually Exploring the Key by Bike
We don’t always want to take an Uber across the Rickenbacker Causeway into Miami for a day out. If you’re visiting Key Biscayne before or after a Pankey CE course, why not explore more of the island and get to know this beautiful vacation destination?
You can walk the entire length of the Key – from Calusa Park to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park – in under an hour if you’re particularly industrious. It’s a fascinating, self-contained place that manages to distinguish itself from the intensity of Miami. It’s also a lush location for beach lounging, ocean wildlife sightseeing, unique food, golfing, and relaxation.
So what’s the best way to see Key Biscayne? By foot can be a bit too exhausting, so why not try a bike …
Exploring the Key by Bike
Key Biscayne is officially a ‘bike friendly’ community. Because it’s such a small area, cars are less of a disturbance. You can now pick up a bike all over the Key for a refreshing ride about town. Just download the Lime bike share app on either Google Play or the App Store and get to pedaling.
Lime bikes are much more convenient than most public bike systems since they have no official docking station you have to show up at. Use the app to search for a bike nearby and you’re good to go.
After multiple days of learning at the Pankey Institute, a bike ride outside is just what most us need to digest it all. Cover some serious distance and stop at our favorite food spots along your path. Wind through neighborhoods with buildings old and new, extravagant mansions and humble family homes. Catch a glimpse of the bay and inhale a whiff of salt air.
When you’re ready for a rest, you can park your bike wherever you want to end up.
