Afterward, puff on $10 hookahs for sheer delight and enjoy the rest of the homegrown talent.

This is an medium-difficulty ride with a friendly group through downtown Fort Lauderdale that almost any level rider can join. Make sure you have a helmet and a light. About 15 miles, the pace is fast (17 to 20 mph) but not "stupid fast." After leaving from Cooley's Landing at 8:15 p.m. sharp, the group can be met up with at Las olas/A1A between 8:50 and :55 for a regroup and a break at the 7-11, before moving on to finish up at Tap 42 for $5 Prohibition burgers.
