The Family Fun Ride & Moonlight Movie in the Park events are community-building bike gatherings that encourage our neighbors and visitors of all ages to engage with the City's natural, historic, and artistic surroundings while doing something healthy for the environment and themselves. By pedaling through Fort Lauderdale's neighborhoods during Fun Rides participants have an opportunity to view the different architectural styles of the City's past and present, to experience the diversity of its culture and the narratives of its population, and explore new parts of the City or places and things they've passed hundreds of times but never noticed from a moving car. The Fun Rides also heighten awareness for bicycling and bicycle safety, as well as promote bicycling as a viable, sustainable transportation alternative.

Riding a bike is a great low cost way to get outside and explore all that Fort Lauderdale has to offer in a fun, active, interesting, social way. Join a Fun Ride today and help create healthier, cleaner, more livable neighborhoods.
