We toured island wheely nicely

Cycling is becoming a major attraction in the Cayman Islands and that was confirmed on Friday when 38 avid cyclists from Montrose, California arrived on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas to participate in a bicycle tour of Grand Cayman.

The bike cruise, led by Bike Magazine editor Joe Parkin and Izzy Bike Shop owner Bobby Archer was the first of its kind and enabled riders to enjoy beautiful scenic trails at each port.

The visiting bikers were met by three-time Olympian and well-known local cyclist Craig Merren, who accompanied the bikers on a tour along Seven Mile Beach and through West Bay, including areas such as Salt Creek, Hell, the Turtle Farm, Dolphin Discovery and the Tortuga Rum Factory, before returning to the dock.

The group sailed from Fort Lauderdale and organisers confirmed that following the success of this year’s inaugural trip, another bike cruise is already being planned for March.
