Time to register for your Homestead ride

The Greenway Bike Festival is coming up on Feb. 25-26 in Homestead. The fully-supported rides that Saturday will be on routes of 25 miles, 41 miles, or 62 miles, and there's a nice lunch at the finish in Homestead's historic downtown. You can register at active.com.

On Sunday, mountain bikers are invited to the Fat Tire Ride along the route of the planned Biscayne-Everglades Greenway, which eventually will connect our county's two national parks. Significant parts of this ride are on rough or rocky canal banks, where road bikes won't do well. There's no charge for this ride, but you should bring a tire kit and extra tube, plus extra water and any food you'll need. Starting point is the visitor center at Everglades National Park.
