THINGS TO KNOW BE­FORE YOU GO TO SHARK VAL­LEY

Bonita & Estero Magazine - - EXPLORER -

Under Florida law, any bi­cy­clist under age 16 must wear a hel­met.

South Florida sum­mers de­liver some im­pres­sive weather that you will not want to en­counter on a bike. Most thun­der­storms oc­cur dur­ing the mid- to late af­ter­noon hours, so the best rid­ing times are in the morn­ing, when storm chances are smaller and it’s still a lit­tle cooler.

Do not bother the an­i­mals. It is dan­ger­ous and il­le­gal to feed or ha­rass wildlife.

Ad­mis­sion to Ever­glades Na­tional Park is $25 per car and $8 per per­son on foot or bike.

Park­ing is lim­ited, so if there’s a wait to en­ter the park, you can choose to park on the Tami­ami Trail and pedal (or walk) in.
