Today, Sharon LaPoint of Vero Cycling Club joins us today to discuss a very important distinction they've received. 

Recently, Vero Beach was recognized as a bicycle-friendly community! This is good for Vero Beach because it encourages people to move here who live an active lifestyle. A bicycle friendly community indicates the people there are active, and it's not a closed community where everyone stays indoors.

The League of American Bicyclists named Indian River County as one of 42 newly designated bike friendly communities because of the hard work of a coalition of civic and business leaders and bicycle enthusiasts who have worked and planned to make the county as friendly as possible for cyclists. They taught bicycle safety training to more than 3,000 elementary school kids and gave each one a helmet. This is just one of the many yearly programs this coalition has passed to make the Vero Beach area as bicycle friendly as possible!

A lot of people who come and ride with us are here visiting family in Vero Beach, so even if you don't like to ride, your guests might truly enjoy it! If you're visiting, or if you're unsure whether you want to invest in expensive biking equipment, there are bike shops here that let you try out gear before purchasing! One of the many great shops in Vero Beach is called Orchid Island Bikes. They support biking events in the area and offer free classes. There are also sponsored rides that the Vero Cycling Club offers to people of all ages! 

In short, there are a ton of people who are passionate about cycling in Vero Beach and want to help people of any skill level get involved! If you have any questions about this wonderful club, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, give us a call! We would love to hear from you!
