The Hammock Dunes Bicycle Club members call themselves “Folks on Spokes”. The group varies between a few and a dozen. Today, six of us enjoyed a 30-mile ride. We met at the south gate of Hammock Dunes at 8am and headed south on A1A. The first leg of the ride was eight miles to Flagler Beach. Then we headed over the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway on the Flagler Beach bridge. We headed further south into Volusia county and then east back to A1A. The weather was warm and we lucked out in not having too much headwind.
We always stop for breakfast–75% or so of the way through the ride–and have a good time socializing. We talk about technology, healthcare, politics, bicycling, and other topics. Breakfast today was at the Oceanside Beach Bar & Grill. They have nice outdoor seating and the service and food are excellent. The last 10 miles north on A1A got us back to Hammock Dunes by 11 AM.
