Have you noticed how many cyclists ride through our neighborhood on Saturdays and Sundays? I see hundreds of them in different size groups heading up and down Panther Parkway. The roads for the cyclists are not always safe though and Sunrise Mayor Mike Ryan decided that it's time to improve the conditions. No word yet on what the Mayor is working on or when the ideas will be released or whether they will ever be implemented, but it's good to know that cyclists are welcome here.

Urban Sawgrass is not just favorite of the cyclists. Many mountain bikers have made Markham Park their second home. With excellent novice, intermediate and expert trails, mountain biking is a favorite activity at the park. Whatever trail you choose, you are guaranteed to have a blast.

With so many riders in the neighborhood, you bet there have to be some bike shops.  You'll find 3 between Markham Park and Hiatus Road, all along SR84/I595 on the south side.
