Bike Palm Beach

22

The Palm Beach Lake Trail runs about 6 miles along the Intracoastal.

May is National Bike Month.

When you have the oceanfront and the Lake Trail, there’s really no reason not to celebrate. Frankly, we can’t think of a nicer way to start the day than to hop on a cruiser and tool down to some nice little breakfast spot before the day starts to heat up. Or if you’re not into early mornings, take a picnic to Bradley Park and follow with an evening ride along the lake to watch the sun set.

What’s that? Your wheels need a little TLC? Palm Beach has two shops ready to care for the bicycle you already have or put you on a new one:

If you more bikes than you know what to do with, consider donating one or two to Jack the Bike Man, at 2406 Florida Avenue in West Palm Beach, who repairs and rehabs used bikes for underprivileged children and adults.

Nick’s Perfect Palm Beach Day

Nick.jpgHow fun! A new feature on the blog, dedicated to the pursuit of The Perfect Palm Beach Day, as imagined by island insiders, local celebrities and noteworthy neighbors.

  • Start with a walk or run along the Lake Trail, followed by breakfast at Surfside Diner (on South County Road).
  • Next, stroll south for some shopping along Worth Avenue.
  • Hop in your Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead for the lovely ride along the beach, on your way to lunch at Eau’s new open-air waterfront bistro, Breeze Ocean Kitchen.
  • Shoot a quick round of golf at the Palm Beach Par Three, and then quench your thirst on the balcony at Al Fresco.
  • Finally, zip over the bridge for dinner and to catch a movie at CityPlace.

What about you? What’s your Perfect Palm Beach Day?
