Bike Ride 8/28 to Celebrate the Completion of Hickory Blvd Shoulders!
The Hickory Blvd. shoulders project is now complete & ready to ride! LeeDOT did a great job of planning and executing this project and BikeWalkLee is most appreciative of their efforts and of the support of the County Commissioners and the Bonita Springs City Council that made this project possible. To celebrate this success, you are invited to join the Caloosa Riders on a 25 mile bike ride on Sunday, August 28th, starting at 8 a.m.
We’ll ride the entire length of Estero Blvd and Hickory Blvd using Bowditch Point and Bonita Beach as turnaround points. Approximately 4 miles of that route will be on the new shoulders that were added on Little Hickory Island. We’ll start Sunday, 8am sharp, from the Boat Ramp area that is on the East side of Estero Blvd across from the entrance to Lover’s Key State Park. Anticipate 10 to 15 mph pace – riders of all skill levels are welcome. This is certainly not a race; it’s not an event; and it is unsupported (bring your own food and water as there are no facilities at the start and finish location). This is an opportunity to experience the completion of another Lee County DOT project to help make our roads safer for all users.
Thanks to the Caloosa Riders for pulling this celebration ride together. If you have any questions, contact Steve Rodgers on 239-839-7926.
Hope to see you there!
